The United Hatzalah medical group said one man was beaten by the crowd who had apparently mistaken him for the attacker.

Since a wave of violence broke out in October 2015, more than 250 Palestinians, 41 Israelis, two Americans, a Jordanian, an Eritrean and a Sudanese have died.

Most of the Palestinians killed were carrying out knife, gun or car-ramming attacks, according to Israeli authorities, with others were killed during protests, in clashes or Israeli air raids on Gaza.

The rate of attacks has declined significantly in recent months.
