Israeli military shoots, kills suspected Palestinian stabber
JERUSALEM: The Israeli military says it has shot and killed a Palestinian who was trying to stab an Israeli pedestrian at a busy West Bank junction.
Another Israeli who was nearby was lightly wounded in the shooting.
The attack is the latest in a wave of violence that erupted in mid-September over tensions at a Jerusalem holy site.
Israel says the violence stems from Palestinian incitement and incendiary videos on social media. The Palestinians say the violence is rooted in frustration over a lack of hope for obtaining independence.
