KARMEI TZUR, West Bank (Reuters) &#8211 A Palestinian assailant was shot lifeless on Wednesday right after stabbing a protection guard at the entrance to a Jewish settlement in the occupied West Financial institution, the Israeli military explained.

The civilian guard, stationed at the Karmei Tzur settlement north of the city of Hebron, was a bit wounded. Yet another protection guard shot and killed the attacker, the navy mentioned in a statement.

Tensions have risen in the West Lender because U.S. President Donald Trump&#8217s Dec. 6 recognition of Jerusalem as Israel&#8217s capital, overturning decades of U.S. policy that its status should be decided in Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.
