Israeli sources claimed that Ahmad Touba (19) from Kafr Jamal village near Tulkarm, northern West Bank, tried to stab a soldier near Sal’it illegal settlement, who immediately shot him dead.

Israeli media also claimed that Ahmad had “snuck into” the settlement, since they found a gap in its fence and started the search for the him and then shot him.

Ahmad is the second Palestinian to be killed by IOF since Sunday morning.
