Ynet News reported that the Palestinian man was identified as Fadi Muhammad Mahmoud Khasib, 25, from al-Bireh near Ramallah. The israeli news stated that Fadi was shot and killed by a settler that was at the scene.

According to Jerusalem Post, the two israeli soldiers were moderately injured.

Fadi’s brother, Shadi, was shot dead on Sunday by a settler near the illegal Kafr Adumim settlement.

Israeli police said that following a car accident in the area, a Palestinian man “walked out his vehicle with a knife in his hand and was shot dead.” Locals said that Shadi got out of his vehicle to check for damage following an accident and was shot dead by a settler.

His body is still being held by Israeli authorities.
