Jerusalem: Israeli troops shot and wounded a Palestinian man who had stabbed a soldier on Saturday near a checkpoint on a highway in the occupied West Bank, the army said.

The military said both the soldier and suspected assailant, who was arrested, were lightly wounded.

The incident took place near the "Bel" crossing on route 443, close to Ofer military prison, according to the military.

Highway 443, southwest of Ramallah, is a major artery between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, which cuts through the West Bank for several kilometres.

On Sunday, a Palestinian from the nearby village of Khirbet al-Misbah was shot dead after stabbing and lightly wounding an Israeli at a petrol station on the highway.
