A Palestinian man was shot by an Israeli civilian after allegedly attempting to stab a second Israeli in a West Bank industrial park. 

The Palestinian, armed with a screwdriver, was shot by a civilian who was at the scene. The suspect was seriously wounded and evacuated to Hadassah hospital. The targeted Israeli was unhurt. Three Israelis were treated for shock.

The incident came days after a Palestinian was arrested at the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron after a knife was allegedly found hidden in his sock.
