An IDF soldier was lightly wounded Saturday morning in a stabbing attack in the West Bank city of Hebron, according to officials.

The assailant was shot and killed by security forces near the Tel Rumeida neighborhood of the city, the army said.

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.

The incident was the fifth apparently terror-related attack of the weekend, and the third in the Hebron area.

Hanan Ashrawi, a senior Palestinian official, condemned Israel for the “extra-judicial killings” of the attackers but did not condemn the attacks themselves. “Israel is flagrantly employing a systematic and willful policy of summary executions against the Palestinian people; such provocative acts are in direct violation of international law and conventions,” Ashrawi said. “We call on the international community to engage rapidly and effectively before it is too late.”
