An Israeli was killed in another attack in the West Bank on Monday. The young man was initially taken to a hospital in critical condition. The clinic later announced that the 27-year-old had died. According to the Israeli army, the attack happened at an intersection on the northern shore of the Dead Sea. According to media reports, the perpetrator was able to escape and fled towards the Palestinian city of Jericho.
The army had previously further increased its presence in the West Bank. After a Palestinian attack in which two Israelis were killed, Israeli settlers rioted there on Sunday evening. One Palestinian was killed and hundreds injured. Dozens of houses, shops and cars were set on fire.
Since the beginning of the year, 13 Israelis and one Ukrainian have been killed in Palestinian attacks. In the same period, 63 Palestinians lost their lives - they were killed, for example, in confrontations with the Israeli army or in attacks.
Israel conquered the West Bank and East Jerusalem in 1967. More than 600,000 Israeli settlers live there today. The Palestinians claim the territories for an independent state of Palestine with eastern Jerusalem as the capital.
