Palestinian Woman Stabs Israeli in Gush Etzion, Is Shot by Soldiers
An Israeli man was hurt in a stabbing attack at the Gush Etzion Junction south of Jerusalem in the West Bank on Monday evening, April 17, the military and medics said.
The Israel Defense Forces said the female Palestinian assailant was shot after carrying out the attack. She was taken to a hospital in Jerusalem, although her condition was not immediately clear. Footage from the scene showed the suspected attacker lying on the ground next to a knife.
The Magen David Adom ambulance service said a 36-year-old man was treated in moderate condition after being stabbed by the Palestinian woman.
He was taken by MDA to the Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital in Jerusalem, where medical officials there described his condition as moderate but stable.
At least 92 Palestinians have been killed since the beginning of the year, most of them while carrying out attacks or during clashes with security forces, but some were uninvolved civilians and others were killed under circumstances that are being investigated.
