Sunday: 105th Palestinian killed, 2 Israelis wounded, 3rd radio-station in Hebron closed

Israeli forces shot dead a Palestinian man on Sunday after the man allegedly stabbed and injured an Israeli police officer near Damascus gate in occupied East Jerusalem. The attacker was a 38-year-old Palestinian from the Nablus district of the northern occupied West Bank. Local sources identified him as Basseem Abdul-Rahman Mustafa Salah. The Israeli police officer who was injured is reportedly in light to moderate condition, a Magen David Adom medical service spokesperson said. Witnesses near the near scene told Ma'an that Israeli police shot the Palestinian man at least 11 times during the incident, adding that Israeli forces did not allow medics to reach him.
YNet reports that somewhat later an Israeli was moderately wounded in another stabbing attack, on a bus in Jerusalem. The assailant fled. 
So far 105 Palestinians have been killed since the start of last month, the majority of them during attacks or  alleged ctual attacks on Israelis. In the same time 19 Israelis were killed.
Israeli forces issued an order for the closure of a Hebron radio station on Sunday morning, the third news outlet to be shut by Israel this month in the occupied West Bank city.
Director of of Dream Radio station, Talab Al-Jaabri, told Ma’an that Israeli forces stormed the station, destroying equipment and damaging offices.Al-Jaabri said Israeli forces told him the radio station would be closed for six months due to “incitement against Israel.”
Last week Israeli forces shut down Al-Khalil Radio (Hebron Radio), also in Hebron, on the same grounds of incitement..Earlier this month, Israeli forces ordered the closure and ban on broadcasting from Manbar al-Hurriyya (Freedom Tribune) radio station, also located in Hebron and reportedly affiliated with Fatah.
