Another Palestinian man is shot dead by Israeli forces, this time in south al Khalil Kiryat Gat settlement. Israeli forces claim the victim attacked a soldier with a knife. Earlier today in Jerusalem al-Quds, an Israeli soldier shot and wounded a Palestinian woman after allegedly being stabbed by her. Elsewhere in the occupied West Bank, Israeli settlers seriously injured a Palestinian teenager close to the town of Beit Sahir. Tensions have been running high in the region since Israeli officials banned Palestinians from entering the Old City, where the al-Aqsa Mosque compound is located. Israeli Prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has delayed his scheduled trip to Germany due to the ongoing unrest.
