Knife attack kills one Israeli, wounds two others in West Bank

Knife attack kills one Israeli, wounds two others in West Bank

In a statement late Thursday, Hamas praised the "courageous operation" in the West Bank without claiming responsibility for it.

The 17-year-old attacker entered the Adam settlement near Ramallah in the occupied West Bank on Thursday evening, Israeli army spokesman Jonathan Conricus said.

Security sources said that the Israeli artillery fired two shells near the al-Breij refugee camp in central Gaza and another two shells at a Hamas monitoring site east of the refugee camp.

'The rioters hurled large rocks and firebombs and rolled burning tyres at (Israeli) troops, who responded with riot dispersal means, ' an army statement said.

Medical sources said that dozens of young Palestinians demonstrated at five different locations in eastern Gaza Strip close to the border with Israel as part of the rallies and protests they carry out every Friday since March 30.

There was no immediate confirmation of any rocket fire from Gaza, which typically sets off such sirens, and the military said it appeared to be a "false alarm".

You can pre-order the Collector's Edition over at GameStop , but as it's sold in limited quantities, you'll want to act fast. This certainly makes sense since most of the VR games are first-person and even Resident Evil 7 was a first-person title.

The shooting on the border Wednesday was the second such sniper incident reported by Israel in days. Four other Palestinians were detained for questioning.

Over the past week, Israeli forces have been launching deadly air strikes at the Gaza Strip after the death of an Israeli soldier near the borders of the strip.

The last stabbing attack in a West Bank settlement was in April, when a Palestinian tried to stab an Israeli with a screwdriver near a petrol station in an industrial area connected to the Maale Adumim settlement east of Jerusalem.

The violence ended late Friday after Egypt and the United Nations helped broker a tense ceasefire.

Israel says it is defending its border and accuses Hamas, a group sworn to its destruction, of using the protests as cover for attempts to breach the border fence and attack civilians and soldiers.

The National Authority for the March of Return and Breaking the Siege in Gaza strip also announced the continuation of the marches that demand an end to the siege and freedom to the Palestinian people.
