PNN/ Ramallah/

A Palestinian youth on Sunday night was shot dead after he “suspectedly” stabbed an Israeli settler near  Mode’ein settlement, near Ramallah, wounding him lightly.Anas Taha (24) from Jerusalem district was immediately shot by Israeli police forces after he was suspected to initiate a stab attack on a settler.

Taha was wounded severely before announced dead in the  Sha’ari Tsedek hospital in Jerusalem.

The IOF spokesperson said that soldiers were searching for additional “members” of the attack.

The 26-year-old settler sustained light stabs. According to Ynet, he received treatment at the “trauma center” at Sha’are HaTzedek hospital, and is now in a stable condition.

Last week, Israeli settlers have torched the home of Sa’ad Dawabsheh in Duma village near Nablus, burning his 18-month-old toddler to death.

Two days ago, Sa’ad was announced dead of wounds he sustained in the arson attack.  Two Palestinian protesters were shot at the same day in protest of the terrorist arson attack.

The crime was widely condemned by Palestinian, Israeli and international bodies. However, none of the settlers was named suspect in the crime, but other right-wing extremist settlers were reportedly arrested and face a 6-month “administrative detention” for their terrorist activity.
