Police: Palestinian woman tries to stab cop in Jerusalem Old City, was shot

A Palestinian woman was shot and killed in Jerusalem’s Old City in the early hours of Thursday when she attempted to stab police officers.

According to the police, the woman approached the officers at around 6.30 am near the chain gate leading to Temple Mount, pulled out a knife and tried to stab them. The officers opened fire, shooting the woman.

“The medical forces that reached the spot later announced his death,” police said.

According to police, no officer was injured in the attack.

The Palestinian woman, said to be around 30 years old, was from the town of Kabatia, outside Jenin in the northern West Bank. It was not immediately clear how she entered Israel.

The police cordoned off the area and brought in a sapper to ensure that the woman did not have an explosive device.

Qabatiah and the entire Genin region have seen a significant increase in violence in recent months, including earlier on Thursday when a Palestinian gunman – allegedly a member of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist group – set on fire Israeli Border Police officers who were conducting an arrest raid in the city of Burkin outside Jenin were shot and killed.

Earlier this week, Israeli security forces conducted large-scale raids in the Jenin region and elsewhere in the West Bank, targeting a Hamas cell that Israeli security services said they believed were part of Israel’s Were planning to carry out imminent attacks on the bases. Five Palestinians – at least four of whom were later identified as members of terrorist groups – were killed in clashes with Israeli forces, and two Israeli soldiers were seriously injured, possibly from friendly fire.
