Palestinian PM condemns West Bank ‘stabbing incident’


Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad on Wednesday condemned what he termed a “stabbing incident” in the West Bank earlier in the day, in which a Palestinian police officer fatally stabbed an Israeli officer, Israeli newspapers have reported.

Ihab Khatib, 28, was a non-commissioned logistics officer in the elite Kfir brigade, from the village of Kfar Maghar. He was reportedly stabbed to death by Mahmoud al-Khatib, a member of the Palestinian security forces in the West Bank.
