OCCUPIED West Bank, September 16, 2018 (News Wires) - A Palestinian fatally stabbed an Israeli at a shopping mall in the occupied West Bank on Sunday before an armed civilian shot and wounded the assailant, Israeli police and medical officials said.

Security camera footage circulated on social media appeared to show the attacker stabbing a man in the back outside the mall in the Jewish settlement bloc of Gush Etzion.

After a brief struggle, the assailant flees, pursued by several pistol-wielding men, and collapses to the pavement.

The Jerusalem hospital that received the 45-year-old Israeli casualty said he was dead on arrival.

The Palestinian was shot by a civilian at the scene and was in Israeli custody, a police spokesman said.

RAMALLAH, Sept 16 , 2018 (MENA) - Israeli occupation forces Sunday morning detained 16 Palestinians during wide-scale raids across the occupied West Bank.

One Palestinian from Jerusalem, three from Hebron, two from Qalqilya and two from Nablus were among those detained by the Israeli forces.

Meanwhile, Israeli bulldozers demolished a Palestinian-owned house in the city of Ramallah under the pretext that it was built without permit, according to witnesses.

Israeli police closed off the area and declared it a closed military zone before the bulldozers, under heavy protection from the police, proceeded to demolish the house owned by Palestinian citizen Nayef Abu Amer in the neighbourhood of al-Jawarish.

RAMALLAH, Sept 14, 2018 (MENA) - The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said it is deeply concerned by Israel's decision to demolish private houses and other structures in Khan al Ahmar village in Area C of the West Bank.

"The planned demolitions will dramatically affect the lives and dignity of this community," said David Quesne, Head of ICRC Mission in Jerusalem.

"As long as zoning and planning policies in the West Bank fail to serve the population living under occupation, they cannot be used as justification for destruction of property," Quesne said.

As the occupying power in the West Bank, Israel is bound by the International Humanitarian Law, he noted.

It has a duty to ensure the protection, security and welfare of the people living under occupation and to guarantee that they can live as normal a life as possible, in accordance with their own laws, culture and traditions, he added.

Last week, the Israeli High Court of Justice rejected appeals by Khan al Ahmar residents and approved the eviction and demolition of the village.

RAMALLAH, August 7, 2018 (MENA) - Israeli forces arrested late Monday and early Tuesday six Palestinians in the West Bank, the Palestinian Prisoners Club said.

Meanwhile, the Palestinian Committee of Prisoners’ Affairs said the number of Palestinian prisoners being held in Israel’s Ramla prison hospital rose to 19.

The prisoners are suffering from bad health condition and medical neglect, it said.
