A female Palestinian terrorist was shot by Israeli security forces after she attempted to stab a man at the Gush Etzion intersection in the West Bank on Monday morning. The victim was lightly wounded in his shoulder.

The terrorist, Amal Taqatqa, 22, from Beit Fajjar, a Palestinian village located south of Bethlehem had a second knife hidden in her clothing. After she was shot, Taqata was taken to the Hadassah University Medical Center in Jerusalem, where she is said to be in serious condition.

“The victim was treated on site, with minor wounds. He didn’t need to be hospitalized,” Eyal Zahavi, a Magen David Adom paramedic who was at the scene, told Tazpit News Agency. “The terrorist had gunshot wounds all along her upper body, and MDA together with army paramedics treated her at the site. She was transported to Hadassah Ein Kerem “‹hospital for further treatment at the intensive care unit.”

    One day the Jews will wake up from their deep slumber and they will get the nerve up to separate out these hateful warlike people- Israel can simply lock these people in, and refuse to let them back in UNLESS they are ready to play nice. We hold the keys to the jail, the borders can be shut all over PA territory A and B. Also we can build out E-1, increase construction and business, lower housing costs, and best of all surround E Jerusalem with lots of Jews, hemming the Arabs there in. This also would extend the Area C and beyond directly into Jerusalem, and make it contiguous — a solid Jewish front.
