Israeli forces shot and killed a Palestinian after he stabbed an Israeli police officer at a West Bank checkpoint on Monday, police said.
The body of the attacker was taken to a hospital morgue in the city of Nablus.
A police spokeswoman said the Palestinian, who was in his twenties, approached the checkpoint, telling police officers that he felt unwell.
He then pulled out a knife and stabbed one of the officers, slightly wounding him.
Another officer then fatally shot the attacker, police said.
Tensions have been high since an arson attack in July on a Palestinian home in the West Bank, in which an 18-month-old toddler was burned to death.
