Sep 17, – A military statement said the attacker drew a knife during a routine security check in Hebron’s Tel Rumeida neighbourhood, wounding the soldier.

“In response to the immediate threat, forces at the scene shot the assailant, resulting in his death,” the statement said.

The Palestinian health ministry named the man killed as Hatem al-Shaloudi, 25.

He was a resident of Tel Rumeida, as was 16-year-old Mohammed Rajabi, who was shot dead during an attack on Friday.

Rajabi was one of three alleged assailants killed while carrying out attacks on Israelis, two in and around occupied Hebron and one in Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem.

Another man was killed on Thursday, also in Hebron, after allegedly trying to evade arrest by the Israeli military.

One of Friday’s dead, 28-year-old Saeed Amro, was a Jordanian national visiting Jerusalem, and Amman on Saturday denounced his killing as a “barbaric act” by Israel.

“Amro was part of a group of tourists who had entered the Palestinian territories on Thursday to visit Jerusalem,” foreign ministry spokeswoman Sabah Refai said in Amman.

Many Palestinians hold Jordanian passports, and Israeli police said on Friday they were checking if Amro also had Palestinian papers.

But a Jordanian official source told that he was not Palestinian.
