2 Palestinians killed after stabbing Israeli soldier
JERUSALEM: Israel's military says 2 Palestinians attacked a soldier with knives in the West Bank, wounding him before forces shot and killed them.
It said the attack occurred in Hebron, a frequent flashpoint for violence and the largest Palestinian city in the West Bank where some 850 Israelis live in heavily-guarded enclaves surrounded by tens of thousands of Palestinians.
The bloodshed was the latest incident in over two months of almost daily Palestinian attacks.
Israel blames the violence on incitement by Palestinian leaders and on social media sites. Palestinians say it stems from a lack of hope of gaining statehood.
