According to the Israeli army, the man “got out of a vehicle that had arrived near a military outpost at the Gitai Avisar junction before starting to run holding a knife to a bus station where civilians and Israeli soldiers were waiting.”

“Soldiers opened fire on the assailant and neutralized him,” said the source, who said there were no injuries. An army spokesman confirmed his death.

According to the Palestinian Ministry, the Palestinian is a “young man” from the village of Karawat Bani Hassan, near the town of Salfit, in the northern part of the West Bank, which has been occupied by Israel since 1967.

Jerusalem, the Occupied West Bank and Israel have been the scene of a series of anti-Israel knife attacks since October 2015, often perpetrated by isolated young Palestinians.

Such attacks may have subsided since then, but violence and confrontation have escalated over the past year in the West Bank, according to recent figures from the Israeli military and the United Nations.

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) recorded 410 attacks by Israeli settlers on Palestinians in the first ten months of 2021, compared to 358 in 2020 as a whole.

According to an annual report by the Israeli army, in 2021, 100 attacks were carried out against Israelis in the occupied West Bank, compared to 60 a year earlier, to which were added 5,532 incidents involving stone-throwing compared to 4,000 last year.
