In these distressing images, a bloodied Israeli soldier lies wounded beside a knife-wielding Palestinian who was shot dead after disguising himself as a member of the Press.
Amid rising tensions in the region, the man dressed as a news photographer and then stabbed and wounded an Israeli soldier.
As soon as his guise was uncovered, the man in black jeans and trainers was shot dead by Israeli troops.
Military spokesman Arye Shalicar told AFP the way the man was dressed ‘allowed him to approach the soldier’ in the West Bank settlement of Kiryat Arba, the army said.
Photos showed the man wearing a black T-shirt with the word ‘press’ emblazoned on it.
It comes amid escalating tensions between Palestinians and Israelis this month.
Last night, Palestinians torched the Jewish holy site of Joseph’s Tomb.
Rioters set fire to the site revered by Jews in the West Bank city of Nablus, just hours after Israel PM Benjamin Netanyahu called on the Palestinian leadership to resist from such attacks.
It was condemned by the Israeli army as a ‘despicable act’, while Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas insisted the site would be repaired.
Palestinians overran Joseph’s Tomb overnight, attacking it with petrol bombs.
Palestinian police dispersed the crowd and firefighters extinguished the blaze before Israeli security forces arrived.
This is not the first time the tomb has come under attack. Palestinians tried to set fire to it again last year and virtually destroyed the site in 2000 after Israeli guards withdrew amid clashes.
Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas criticised the fire at the religious site in the northern city of Nablus.
He had not explicitly condemned any of the recent attacks until this one on Joseph’s Tomb.
He said the ‘illegal’ arson ‘offends our culture and our religion and our morals’ and said a committee would investigate and the damage would be repaired.
