A SECURITY guard at an illegal Israeli settlement shot dead a Palestinian youth yesterday following an alleged stabbing attack.
Israeli occupation forces said the guard was lightly injured in the attack at the Karmi Tsur settlement near Hebron in the occupied West Bank.
Palestinian authorities named the alleged attacker as 19-year-old Hamzeh Yousef Zamaareh from neighbouring Halhoul.
The previous day, occupation forces killed Ahmad Jarrar, a suspect in the January 9 fatal shooting of Israeli Rabbi Raziel Shevah at the Havat Gilad illegal and unauthorised settlement outpost deep in the West Bank.
Israel's Shin Bet security service said the joint operation with the military surrounded Mr Jarrar's home in the northern West Bank. When Mr Jarrar emerged with weapons and explosives, they shot him dead.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the weekly cabinet meeting on Sunday that Havat Gilad would be granted official settlement status in response to Rabbi Shevah’s killing.
