Shot and killed: A Palestinian man attempted to steal a weapon from a soldier stationed south of Mount Hebron on Tuesday. The soldier shot the Palestinian and killed him. IDF soldiers present at the scene were not harmed.
The incident occurred during a patrol conducted by reserve soldiers near Tarkumia. The soldiers spotted a Palestinian man attempting to cut the security fence and ordered him to stop. They then cuffed him and took him with them to the IDF outpost nearby.
However, the man was able to free himself from the handcuffs and attempted to snatch the rifle of the soldier guarding the entrance to the base. The guard shot him in the stomach, mortally wounding him.
IDF soldiers at the outpost treated the Palestinian at the scene of the incident. He was later evacuated by the Red Crescent to a Palestinian hospital in Hebron, where he died of his wounds.
