Palestinian shot dead after stabbing Israeli guard: Israeli army

The Palestinian territories have remained dogged by tension since U.S. President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital on December 6, triggering world outcry and protests in the occupied lands - and multiple clashes with Israeli troops - that have left at least 25 Palestinians dead.

Khaled succumbed to his wounds, after being shot with a live round in the chest; he died at the at al-Najah Hospital, in Nablus. Another guard opened fire on the assailant and killed him, it added.

Abbas said talks can only resume on the condition that a future Palestinian state comprises the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, with its capital in east Jerusalem, all territories captured by Israel in the 1967 war.

A spokesperson for the Israeli army told Al Jazeera it was investigating and could not confirm the reports.

Israeli occupation forces killed a Palestinian on Wednesday, claiming he stabbed a security guard at the entrance to an Israeli settlement, taking to three the number of Palestinian martyrs in the last two days.

They blocked main roads and shut down the Huwwara checkpoint, Wafa reported.

Another Palestinian was killed and several dozens wounded later in clashes with Israeli forces during a raid in the West Bank city of Nablus, the Palestinian health ministry said.

Israel had been looking for the final member of the cell which it said killed Rabbi Raziel Shevach in a drive-by shooting.

The overnight raid occurred in the village of Yamoun near Jenin, where the 22-year-old suspect, Ahmad Jarrar, was said to be hiding.

He was the son of a Hamas figure killed by Israeli forces during the second intifada of the early 2000s.

Japan, which voted against the decision made by President Trump to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel at United Nations general assembly vote reportedly rejected Trump's recognition once more during the bilateral meeting.

At least 23 Palestinians have been killed since then, most in clashes with Israeli forces.
