Palestinian who attacked Israeli troops held U.S. citizenship

Friday a Palestinian who was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers as he tried to stab the troops held U.S. citizenship, Reuters reported.

The attacker was also a resident of the West Bank town of Ramallah, where the attack occurred. He was identified as Mahmoud Shaalan, 17.

No one else was injured during the attack.

“A Palestinian assailant armed with a knife attempted to stab soldiers stationed at a security crossing near Ramallah,” a military statement said. “The force thwarted the attack, firing towards the assailant, resulting in his death.”

Israel is struggling to combat five months of near-daily Palestinian attacks on civilians and security forces that have killed 28 Israelis, mostly in stabbings, shootings and attacks where Palestinians used vehicles as weapons to ram into Israelis.
