Three Palestinians were shot dead in two separate stabbing incidents in the occupied West Bank Tuesday Tuesday, the military said, and an American-Israeli wounded in an attack two weeks ago died of his injuries, an Israeli hospital said.Religious and political tensions over Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa Mosque compound fueled the worst wave of Israeli-Palestinian violence since the 2014 Gaza war. In one incident, the Israeli military said soldiers had approached two Palestinians they found acting suspiciously at a junction near a Jewish settlement. Since Oct. 1, at least 58 Palestinians, 31 of whom Israel has said were armed assailants, have been shot dead by Israelis at the scene of attacks or during protests in the West Bank and in Gaza.Palestinians are angry over what they see as excessive use of force by Israeli police and soldiers. The number of Israelis killed in Palestinian attacks rose to 11 after the death of an American-Israeli, who had been wounded in a Palestinian stabbing and shooting attack on a Jerusalem bus.
