Israeli police kill suspected attacker
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.
