Mohammad Tareq Yousef, 17, who killed an Israeli man and injured two others in a terrorist attack at the settlement of Adam outside Jerusalem on July 26, 2018, and was shot dead.

During the raid, clashes broke out between young Palestinians and soldiers firing tear gas.

Two infantry battalions were deployed in the West Bank in response to the incident, the IDF said.

The army added it was "reinforcing the defence" of Adam and other settlements.
