A Palestinian wearing what is believed to have been a suicide belt has been shot after stabbing an Israeli soldier in the shoulder during clashes in the West Bank.

The man attacked troops near a military checkpoint in Ramallah amid riots over Donald Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as being the capital of Israel.

Dramatic video shows the moment he was shot three times as he retreated on a roundabout before collapsing to the ground.

Soldiers can be seen advancing towards him as he lies on the ground - before backing off when they see the device strapped around his waist. It remains unclear as to whether it was operational. Witnesses said he was carrying a small knife.

Meanwhile, officials claimed that two Palestinians had been shot dead by Israeli forces along the border with Gaza today during violent protests. One of them was named as 32-year-old Yasser Sokar.
