Palestinian Teen Armed With Knife Stabs An Israeli Soldier… Gets Gunned Down For Her Trouble
A knife-wielding Palestinian woman who attacked an Israeli soldier and a bystander has been shot dead in the West Bank.
The attacker wounded the Israeli soldier who was on guard near a sensitive West Bank holy site sacred to both Jews and Muslims in Hebron.
A Palestinian male bystander was also caught up in the attack before the woman armed with the knife was shot and killed by Israeli troops, the military said.
The Palestinian girl has been identified as Kilzar al-Oweiwi, 17, from Hebron, according to the Palestinian health ministry.
The incident occurred in Hebron, a flashpoint during the last five months of violence, in which Palestinians have carried out near-daily attacks, mainly stabbings.
The soldier was lightly wounded. A Palestinian who intervened to try to stop the attacker was stabbed and more seriously wounded, and was taken to a hospital for treatment, the military said. More
