A Palestinian was shot dead by Israeli soldiers in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron on Wednesday, the Israeli army and police said.

"A Palestinian attempted to stab a soldier at a military position in Hebron," the army said in a statement.

In a operate incident, in the southern West Bank, an Israeli woman was later stabbed and moderately wounded by a Palestinian, the army said in an English-language statement.

"The assailant approached her and stabbed her from behind," it said. "The assailant was detained on site."

Israel has killed more than 54 Palestinians and wounded hundreds during the month of October alone.

Palestinians have been angered by Tel Aviv's policies of evicting of Palestinian families from East Jerusalem, the prospective capital of a future Palestinian state, and the building of Jewish settlements.
