JERUSALEM (JTA) – A Palestinian was shot dead by Israeli troops after he stabbed an Israeli man at a West Bank gas station.
The 26-year-old victim was slightly injured in the attack near Modiin, in central Israel, where he was filling up his car, the Israel Defense Forces said. He reportedly was attacked by a group of approximately four Palestinian assailants.
The assailant who was killed was shot to prevent him from escaping, the IDF told Israeli media outlets. He reportedly was declared dead at the scene.
Israeli forces were looking for the rest of the group.
