A 26-year-old woman was killed in a stabbing terror attack at the Alon Shvut junction in the Gush Etzion area of the West Bank on Monday. The attack came hours after an IDF soldier was stabbed and critically wounded by a terrorist in Tel Aviv.

According to an initial investigation into the attack, a car pulled up to the hitchhiking post at the entrance to the Alon Shvut settlement. The driver then stepped out of the car and stabbed three people.
