A Palestinian man was shot dead as he attempted to stab soldiers at a bus stop in the central West Bank on Monday, the Israel Defense Forces said. No Israeli injuries were reported. “The assailant got out of a car, armed with a knife, and tried to stab an IDF soldier,” the military said. The soldier opened fire at the man, killing him, according to the IDF. The knife was recovered at the scene. Troops launched a search to find the car that transported the assailant to the scene, setting up roadblocks in the area. A short while later, the driver of the vehicle turned himself in to Israeli security forces, the Defense Ministry’s Civil Administration said.
