    An Israeli man was stabbed to death by a Palestinian on Tuesday morning.

    Eviatar Borovsky, 30, from Yitzhar, was attacked at Tapuach Junction in the north of the West Bank.

    According to sources, after Mr Borovsky was killed, the Palestinian man from Tul Karn took the Israeli’s firearm to shoot at border police.

    The police retaliated, wounding the attacker who was evacuated to Beilinson hospital in Petah Tikva. He was then taken in to custody. Mr Borovsky, father of five children, was declared dead when Magen David Adom arrived at the scene.

    Rabbi Chaim Goldberg was at the junction this morning. He said: “I saw three young women jump into the street. I then heard shots fired. I noticed a person who was lying on the ground get up with a gun in his hand. I slowed down and ducked so he wouldn't see me. I then called the emergency centre to notify them about the incident. ”

    The checkpoint at Tapuach Junction was removed a few months ago on order of former Minister of Defence Ehud Barak.

    Coalition chair member of Knesset Yariv Levin said: "I call on the IDF to reinstate the checkpoints which were removed and to shut down the Tapuach Junction to all Palestinian traffic."

    This is the first Israeli to be killed in the West Bank since September 2011.
