West Bank Stabbing Leaves Two Israeli Soldiers Wounded

The news of the West Bank incident comes just hours after Jerusalem police gunned down a Palestinian in the Old City.

In the past 12 weeks Israeli forces or armed civilians have killed at least 126 Palestinians, 77 of whom authorities described as assailants.

In the first incident, Israeli police said a Palestinian driver sped toward Israeli forces in the village of Silwad, north of Ramallah.

Israeli forces have shot two Palestinians who stabbed and wounded an Israeli soldier in the occupied West Bank on Sunday, the army said.

Around 40 Palestinians were wounded in the clashes that took place at several points along the barrier that separates Israel from the Gaza Strip.

A Palestinian official reportedly said that the proposal to draw up borders was specifically an attempt to prevent the bubbling over of tensions on the Palestinian street.

People placed candles on a symbolic coffin during a rally to pay tribute to Palestinians who organisers.

Earlier an Israeli soldier was stabbed at the main bus station In Jerusalem where many soldiers catch buses back to their bases after a Shabbat break at home.

Officers approached a man they said was following Jewish worshippers, spokeswoman Luba Samri said, and asked to see his identification papers.

The attack in Hawara was the fifth stabbing or attempted stabbing of the day.

The Israeli regime’s military claimed that the slain Palestinians had stabbed an Israeli soldier, slightly wounding him, before being gunned down by Zionist troops.

Many of the Palestinians killed have been attackers while others have been shot dead by Israeli security forces during clashes.

US-backed peace talks between the Palestinians and Israel collapsed in April 2014 after nine months of fruitless meetings amid bitter recriminations and mutual blame.

Israeli leaders says Islamist groups who call for the destruction of Israel have played a major role in inciting the recent violence.
