Israeli Foreign Ministry Releases Pic of Knife Palestinian Woman Used to Try and Stab Israeli Soldiers

avatar by Algemeiner Staff

The Israeli foreign ministry posted a photograph of the kitchen knife it said a 19-year-old Palestinian woman in Hebron used as she attempted to stab an Israeli soldier on Tuesday just before Yom Kippur.

IDF soldiers opened fire on Hadeel al-Hashlamun, and she later succumbed to her wounds at Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center.

According to Israeli military authorities’ preliminary investigations, a metal detector sounded as Hashlamun walked through a check point, and when soldiers fired warning shots urging her to stop she brandished the kitchen knife.

No soldiers were wounded in the incident.
