A PALESTINIAN youth was shot dead this morning (Monday) by Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) after allegedly stabbing a soldier near the settlement on Kiryat Arba, north of Hebron.

The man was identified as Ra’ed Jaradat (22) from Si’ir village near Hebron.

Israeli news media have reported that an Israeli soldier was injured after being stabbed by Mr Jaradat at the Beit Einun junction.
