Israel: Palestinian Woman Tries to Stab Soldier, Is Killed

Thursday, 02 June 2016 09:19 AM

JERUSALEM (AP) — The Israeli military says a knife-wielding Palestinian woman has been shot and killed as she tried to stab a soldier at a West Bank checkpoint.

Thursday's incident is the latest in a series of Palestinian attacks against Israeli civilians and troops over the last eight months.

The stabbings, shootings and assaults in which cars rammed into people or troops have killed 28 Israelis and two Americans. About 200 Palestinians have been killed during that time. Israel says most were attackers.

The assaults were once near-daily incidents but they have slowed down considerably in recent weeks. There have been far fewer casualties as well, and Israeli forces have begun capturing rather than shooting attackers.

Earlier this week, Israeli police arrested a 17-year-old Palestinian in Tel Aviv who had stabbed a soldier.
