Israeli paramilitary police shot a 17 year-old Palestinian dead on Saturday after he stabbed three Israelis in Jerusalem’s Old City.
A police spokesperson said one victim was stabbed in the upper body and suffered moderate injuries. The other man and a border officer were ‘lightly’ wounded.
Palestinian web sites identified the assailant as Ahmed Ghazzal, from the city of Nablus in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.
