Palestinian woman killed after stabbing Israeli man


A 26-year-old Palestinian woman who had allegedly stabbed an Israeli with a knife was fatally shot on Thursday in the town of Huwara in the occupied West Bank.

A 20-year-old Israeli man was taken to hospital with a stab wound, according to the Israeli Magen David Adom ambulance service.

The Israeli army identified the man as a soldier.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health said the alleged assailant died from gunshot wounds to the chest.

Huwara, a Palestinian town, had been the site of several attacks and clashes in recent months.

In February, following a deadly attack that killed two Israeli brothers, hundreds of Israeli settlers rampaged through the town, setting fires and leaving at least one dead and about 100 civilians injured.
