Eight illegal settlers injured in West Bank stabbing: Israeli media
Israeli media claims that a man tried to break into a vehicle that has illegal Israeli settlers aboard and attack them using pepper spray and a knife.
Eight illegal Israeli settlers were injured due to a stabbing taking place near the "Modi'in" settlement in the occupied West Bank, Israeli media alleged late Thursday.
The stabbing near "Modi'in" reportedly caused eight injuries, Israeli media reported, adding that the Israeli occupation forces opened fire against the man who carried out the stabbing, killing him instantly.
The man who carried out the stabbing tried to open the doors of a vehicle with several illegal settlers aboard, using pepper spray and threatening them with a knife he had in his hand.
"The Israeli occupation forces are arresting a man near the scene south of Ramallah," Israeli media said. "It is possible that there was another perpetrator that fled the scene, and the Israeli forces are conducting large-scale search operations in the area."
Egyptian officials had warned the Israeli occupation against carrying out "military operations" in the occupied West Bank, as it could lead to an "explosion" in the situation there, Israeli public broadcaster KAN said previously.
"Egyptian officials warned Israel that the situation could spiral out of control, and they criticized Tel Aviv for its action," the Israeli channel added.
The Egyptian officials that spoke to KAN criticized, according to the channel, the Israeli occupation's behavior, and believe that the increase of Israeli activity in the West Bank was "embarrassing the Palestinian Authority and undermining it even further."
Contrary to requests made by Cairo, the Israeli occupation assassinated two senior PIJ members in the Gaza Strip in August and refused to liberate Palestinian detainees Bassem Al-Saadi and Khalil Awawdeh despite pledges to do so. The Israeli occupation also downed an Egyptian UAV over Sinai in June, sparking heavy tensions between the two.
Consequently, Al-Quds Brigades launched an operation in response to the Israeli occupation's aggression on the Gaza Strip, by launching salvoes of rockets toward the occupied Palestinian territories.
"Israel" fears an uprising
Israeli media reported last week that the occupation was preparing to use UAVs in its military operations in the West Bank, which have seen an uptick since March.
The West Bank is undergoing a turbulent time amid Israeli concerns about an Intifada (uprising) carried out by the Palestinian youth, a Yedioth Ehronoth report said.
"What we have seen during the past few months in the West Bank is another kind of Intifada, different from the 80s intifada and the 2000 intifada, and it is distinguished by violence against the army," Israeli media said.
