Palestinian Woman Shot Dead While Attempting to Stab Israeli Soldiers
JNS.org – A female Palestinian terrorist was shot and killed Wednesday as she tried to stab Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers at the Tapuach Junction in the West Bank.
No Israelis were hurt in the attack.
Border Police officers first fired warning shots and called on the 19-year-old woman to stop as she approached them, but she refused.
“This additional attempt to hurt the routine of our lives, not to mention that it comes during one of our holidays, will not succeed,” Samarian Regional Council chief Yossi Dagan said in a statement following the attack.
Tourist activities in Samaria will continue as planned, he added.
“The tens of thousands of day trippers, who are currently at the many tourist attractions in the Shomron, are making their voices heard with their legs,” Dagan said.
