Israeli forces shot dead a female Palestinian attacker after she attempted to stab a soldier at a West Bank checkpoint on Tuesday, as tensions continued to simmer ahead of this week’s major
Jewish and Muslim holidays. The woman later died of her injuries.
The military said forces opened fire and ‘identified a hit’ following the incident in the West Bank city of Hebron.
The woman was identified as 18-year-old university student Hadeel al-Hashlamon. She was taken to an Israeli hospital in critical condition and her father, Salah al-Hashlamon, said she later died of her injuries. The soldier was not wounded.
