Israeli forces have shot dead a Palestinian man in the northern occupied West Bank after he allegedly attempted to carry out a stabbing attack.

The man was identified as 20-year-old Aref Abdel Nasser Lahlouh by the Palestinian Ministry of Health on Wednesday morning.

Lahlouh hailed from the Jenin refugee camp but was killed in Qalqilya, near the illegal Israeli settlement of Kedumim.

Surveillance footage from the scene released by the Israeli national news agency showed a man emerging from his car and running towards soldiers before being shot and killed.

Israeli police were seen shushing another Palestinian man who appeared to be having a panic attack after witnessing the killing.

Israeli forces in large numbers backed by military vehicles on Wednesday raided the camp and demolished the family home of Udai Tamimi, who killed an Israeli soldier in October.
