IDF soldiers on Monday shot and killed a Palestinian who attacked them with gunfire and possessed a grenade, near the Neveh Tzuf settlement in the West Bank, the IDF spokesperson's office has confirmed.
No IDF soldiers were injured, according to local Israeli municipal reports and the IDF.
Magen David Adom declared the Palestinian man dead earlier Monday.

Initially, the man was parked by the roadside and was acting in a way that raised the IDF patrol's suspicions.
When they approached him to ask him to identify himself, he opened fire and started to get ready to throw the grande at them, but he was shot before he was able to let it loose.
After the exchange of fire, a Carlo submachine gun was found in the Palestinian's car.
Despite a massive IDF operation against Jenin last week, there have been a number of terror incidents against Israel last week and this week.
This is a developing story.
