Israeli forces have shot dead another Palestinian in the occupied West Bank allegedly for trying to stab a police officer. The fatal shooting happened at an Israeli army checkpoint near the city of Nablus. This is the fourth such incident in the West Bank in recent days. The Palestinian Authority says it will file a complaint at the International Criminal Court over the unlawful killing of Palestinian youngsters. The PA described the incidents as field executions without any trial and part of Israel’s policy of incitement. It accused Tel Aviv of giving a green light to killing of Palestinians instead of arresting them. The PA also called on the international community to protect the Palestinian youth.
