Israeli stabbed to death by Palestinian in West Bank attack

An Israeli civilian has been stabbed to death in a settlement near Ramallah in the occupied West Bank. The 31-year-old victim was taken to hospital where he died of his injuries, a hospital spokesman said. Two other Israelis were wounded in the attack in Adam on Thursday. One, aged 50, is in a critical condition and the other suffered minor injuries. The Israeli army says the attacker was shot and killed, reportedly by a civilian who was passing by.

It says troops will be sent to nearby Kubar village, where the 17-year-old Palestinian attacker is reported to have lived. "The terrorist infiltrated the community of Adam, north of Jerusalem, and stabbed three civilians," the army said in a statement. "Troops arrived at the scene and are searching the area."

Palestinian militant group Hamas said the attack was an act of heroism and revenge for three fighters who were killed in Gaza on Wednesday.
