Ms Samri said he had apparently been hurt by police gunfire at the assailants.
An Israeli fireman hoses the ground at the scene where a Palestinian man was shot dead by Israeli police after he stabbed and wounded two security guards, near the West Bank Jewish settlement of Ariel on Thursday. Israeli fire has killed 121 Palestinians, 83 of them said by Israel to be attackers and the remainder killed in clashes with Israeli forces. The video purported to show a wedding attended by Jewish extremists last week, where revelers stabbed pictures of a Palestinian toddler killed in an arson attack earlier this year, danced with rifles belonging to the Israeli military and in one case, held a mock firebomb in the air.
Two Palestinian assailants on Wednesday carried out a stabbing attack outside Jerusalem’s Old City, killing one Israeli, before they were shot and killed, Israeli police said. The second victim was shot by accident by Israeli security forces aiming at the attackers. Police said he was still alive and holding a knife and was therefore still considered a threat.
Quiet week The latest attack came after a relatively quiet week following more than three months of stabbings, auto rammings and attacks against Israeli civilians and soldiers in Israel and the West Bank.
Israel blamed these lone wolf attacks and the continued violence on incitement on social media.
Shin Bet said the arrests were made in recent weeks. The Palestinians say it is rooted in frustrations stemming from almost five decades of Israeli occupation.
Bloodshed has also been triggered by Muslim opposition to stepped-up Israeli access to Jerusalem’s al Aqsa mosque complex, which many Jews revere as a vestige of their biblical temples and is also Islam’s holiest site outside Saudi Arabia.
