Israel: Palestinian Woman Tries to Stab Officers, Is Killed

Tuesday, 08 March 2016 05:16 AM

JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli police say a Palestinian woman who tried to stab Israeli security forces was shot and killed by officers in Jerusalem's Old City.

Police said Tuesday the woman was from east Jerusalem and in her early fifties. They said the officers were not injured. The incident took place on a heavily patrolled street where other stabbings have occurred.

It was the latest in over five months of Palestinian attacks that have killed 28 Israelis. At least 172 Palestinians were killed by Israeli fire during that time. Most of them were attackers and the rest were killed in clashes, Israel says.

Palestinians say the violence stems from frustration at nearly five decades of Israeli rule on the West Bank and east Jerusalem. Israel says the violence is fueled by Palestinian incitement.
