Israeli forces shot dead one Palestinian and wounded another after they allegedly carried out separate stabbing attempts in the occupied West Bank, Israeli sources said.
One of the Palestinians was shot dead after he allegedly attempted to stab an Israeli border guard at the Container checkpoint east of Jerusalem near Abu Dis.
Israeli police said that Israeli forces opened fire on the Palestinian after he approached a border guard carrying a knife.
They said the Palestinian was "neutralized," and the Palestinian Authority Ministry of Health later said he had succumbed to his wounds.
No Israelis were reported injured during the incident.
Israeli forces subsequently closed the checkpoint in both directions, reportedly preventing ambulances from reaching the injured youth.
A local activist group, the International Solidarity Movement, said that tear gas was being fired at cars waiting at the closed checkpoint.
Later, at around 3 p.m., another Palestinian was reported to have entered the illegal Israeli settlement of Teqoa in Bethlehem district and "lunged at people with a knife," according to Israeli news site Ynet.
Israeli Border Police reportedly shot the Palestinian, and his condition was not yet known.
The incidents came after two other alleged attacks in occupied East Jerusalem left two Israelis injured, with one alleged Palestinian attacker shot dead and a 12-year-old Palestinian boy shot and critically injured.
