A Palestinian was shot dead by Israeli troops on Thursday after stabbing an Israeli soldier in Yatta village in the southern West Bank, an Israeli military source told AFP.

"Palestinians attacked soldiers during an IDF (army) operation in Yatta to arrest suspects," he said on condition of anonymity.

"One soldier was injured after being stabbed in the neck and the soldiers then opened fire on the Palestinians. One Palestinian was killed and another was injured."
