Two Palestinian youths have been shot dead after reportedly carrying out a stabbing operative near Ariel illegal settlement, northern West Bank.
The two were identified as Ali Al-Kar (20) and Ali Taqatqa (19), both from Beit Fajjar village near Bethlehem. They were reportedly killed and left to bleed on the ground without any paramedic treatment.
According to Israeli media, a female Israeli soldier sustained serious wounds in the attack, and was treated by MDA paramedics at the scene then rushed to hospital in Jerusalem.
A photo published right after the shooting showed one of the youths with a knife in his hand, however, it is unproved whether it was planted by Israeli soldiers or not.
