A Palestinian man was shot dead on Friday after he allegedly tried to stab Israeli soldiers in occupied East Jerusalem, Israeli police said in statement.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said a Palestinian man allegedly armed with knife tried to stab Israeli soldiers at the Shufat checkpoint in Jerusalem.

"The soldiers at the scene shot the assailant, resulting in his death,” Rosenfeld said in the statement.

No injuries were reported among Israeli soldiers.
