Israeli soldiers cover the body of a Palestinian shot dead after reportedly stabbing a soldier in the West Bank town of Hebron on September 16, 2016Three alleged assailants were killed while carrying out attacks on Israelis on Friday, security forces said, shattering weeks of relative calm in Israel and the Palestinian territories. The attacks were a reminder of persistent tensions that continue to alarm the international community and came a day after UN chief Ban Ki-moon warned the two-state solution was “further than ever” from becoming reality.
