Palestinian shot dead in Jerusalem
29 November 2015, Nirapad News: Israeli police say a Palestinian stabbed a police officer in Jerusalem before being shot dead by security forces, says an online report.
Spokeswoman Luba Samri says the Palestinian attacked the police officer near a gate into the Old City, moderately wounding him. Other officers opened fire at the attacker.
It is the latest attack in a two-month wave of violence. Since mid-September, 19 Israelis have been killed in Palestinian attacks, mostly stabbings and shootings.
At least 96 Palestinians have been killed, including 60 said by Israel to be attackers. The others died in clashes with Israeli forces.
