Palestinian protesters react to teargas fired by Israeli forces during a demonstration on the beach near the maritime border, in the northern Gaza Strip, yesterday.


A Palestinian stabbed an Israeli soldier and was shot dead by the wounded man and other troops in the Israeli-occupied West Bank yesterday, the military said.
In a statement, the military said the incident occurred near the Cave of the Patriarchs, in the city of Hebron.
The soldier was slightly wounded in the attack and opened fire, along with other soldiers, at the assailant, killing him, according to the military.
Palestinians began a wave of knife and car-ramming attacks in the West Bank and in Israel in 2015, after peace talks with Israel collapsed.
Such incidents have become more sporadic. Palestinians want the West Bank, captured by Israel in the 1967 Middle East war, to be part of an independent state along with the Gaza Strip, with East Jerusalem as its capital.
