The Palestinian news agency identified the martyr as Mohammed Nasser Tarayra, 17 from the village of Bani Naim, just outside al-Khalil (Hebron).

The occupation army said the female settler was killed in her bed in the Kiryat Arba settlement outside the flashpoint city of al-Khalil.

A Zionist settler was stabbed and injured in the Israeli city of Netanya, according to the enemy's media outlets.

Al-Khalil has been a flashpoint in a spate of deadly unrest that has rocked the occupied territories since October last year.

The occupied territories have been, since October 1, rocked by a wave of operations against Zionists in retaliation of the Israeli repressive measures against the Palestinians across the West Bank and especially in al-Quds.

Zionist settlers backed by occupation forces have been repeatedly storming the holy al-Aqsa Mosque, sparking Palestinian anger.

However the occupation forces have been brutally attacking the Palestinians under the pretext of staging stabbing attacks.

The Palestinian operations since the start of October have killed 33 Israelis, while the Israeli occupation forces killed at least 211 Palestinians.
