Israeli police shot dead a Palestinian man who stabbed a border policeman near the Tomb of Patriarchs in the southern West Bank city of Hebron Saturday, police said.
Spokeswoman Luba Samri said the border policeman was in moderate condition with stab wounds to the head and chest, while the 20-year-old suspected assailant died of his injuries on the way to a hospital in Jerusalem.
Palestinian media named the suspected attacker as Assad al-Salayma.
An AFP correspondent said Israeli soldiers were preventing Palestinians gaining access to the area where the Tomb of the Patriarchs, known to Muslims as the Ibrahimi Mosque, is located.
