A Palestinian youth was martyred, shortly before noon this Tuesday, by the Israeli occupation army bullets, after soldiers opened fire at him for allegedly trying to carry out a stabbing attack near Ariel settlement in the area south of Nablus.

According to the correspondent of the Hebrew Risht Kan Channel, the young man was killed on the spot at the scene, which was confirmed by various Hebrew media outlets, citing Israeli security and medical sources.
The Israeli army claimed that the young man tried to carry out a stabbing attack on Israeli soldiers at the Getty Avichar junction.

The settlement is located between Nablus and Salfit, and it is one of the largest Israeli settlements in the West Bank.
