The Palestinian Authority Ministry of Health confirmed that a Palestinian man was shot dead by Israeli military forces near the village, which is located adjacent to the illegal Israeli settlement of Halamish.

The man was identified as Abed al-Rahman al-Barghouthi, 27. He died from gunshot wounds to the neck and arm, the ministry added.
Israel's military said an "Israeli was stabbed and wounded northwest of Ramallah" and the assailant was shot at the scene.

The Magen David Adom ambulance service said the Israeli was in a moderate to serious condition.

The latest incident comes as two Palestinian teenagers were shot dead overnight in Hebron after allegedly stabbing an Israeli soldier in Tel Rumeida.

"Overnight two assailants stabbed an IDF soldier in Hebron. In response to the threat, forces fired at the attackers, resulting in their death. A soldier was moderately wounded," an Israeli army spokesperson told Ma'an.

Palestinian sources identified the victims to Ma'an as cousins Taher Faysal Fannoun, 19, a student at Hebron University, and Faysal Abd al-Minem Fannoun, 15.

At least 111 Palestinians have been killed since Oct. 1.
Nineteen Israelis have been killed in attacks during the same time period.
