A Palestinian man has been killed during an Israeli arrest raid at a West Bank hospital, officials said.

The Israeli military said its forces entered the Al-Ahli hospital in the city of Hebron to arrest Azzam Shalaldeh, a Palestinian man who they say stabbed an Israeli last month.

The military said that during the arrest a suspect at the hospital attacked the troops, who shot him.

Jihad Shawar, the hospital director, identified the man as Abdallah Shalaldeh, the wanted man’s brother. He said troops shot him as he emerged from a toilet.

Shalaldeh was in the hospital being treated for gunshot wounds. The military said he was shot during a stabbing attack last month amid a continuing wave of Israeli-Palestinian violence.
