While the UN devotes its human rights operations to the demonization of the democratic state of Israel above all others and condemns the United States more often than the vast majority of non-democracies around the world, the voices of real victims around the world must be heard.

A man was moderately hurt in an apparent stabbing attack near the West Bank city of Hebron Friday afternoon, near the settlement of Kiryat Arba, the military and medics said.

According to the Israel Defense Forces, the alleged Palestinian stabber was shot by troops. The Rescuers Without Borders emergency services said the assailant had died.

The stabbing victim, in his 20s, was taken to the Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem after sustaining a moderate injury, according to the Magen David Adom ambulance service.

According to Palestinian media reports, clashes erupted at the scene following the suspected attack.

Tensions have escalated in the West Bank recently, with Israeli security forces stepping up arrest raids and operations following a deadly wave of terror attacks that left 19 people dead earlier this year.

Early Friday, Israeli troops arrested three wanted Palestinians in raids across the Wet Bank, with violent incidents in some areas, the IDF said.
