JERUSALEM — Is­raeli se­cu­rity forces killed a sus­pected Pales­tinian at­tacker dur­ing an overnight raid in the West Bank, the Is­raeli army said on Sun­day.

Ac­cord­ing to a statement from the Is­rael De­fense Forces, the as­sailant was iden­ti­fied as 34-year-old Am­mar Ahmed Khalil, who re­port­edly opened fire at the West Bank com­mu­ni­ties of Ateret and Nabi Saleh on Satur­day.

The Pales­tinian was shot dead af­ter at­tempt­ing to re­sist ar­rest in a house in Nabi Saleh near Ra­mal­lah in the cen­tral West Bank, the statement said.

An­other Pales­tinian was in­jured in the fire­fight.

The in­ci­dent came two days af­ter three Arab-Is­raeli gun­men shot and killed two Is­raeli po­lice of­fi­cers and in­jured an­other at Jerusalem’s ul­tra-sen­si­tive Haram al-Sharif com­pound, known to Jews as the Tem­ple Mount.

All three at­tack­ers were killed on the site.
