A Palestinian reportedly attempted to stab an Israeli at the Tapuah Junction in the northern West Bank, according to local authorities.

Border police reported that the woman approached them and did not respond to their orders to halt. They then shot in the air as a warning and when she failed to respond, they shot in the air. They then shot at her lower body.

The terrorist is fully conscious but suffered from bullet wounds in her lower extremities. She was treated by paramedics on the scene.


The suspect, a woman in her 40s from Tulkarem, explained her behavior by saying she wanted to die due to family issues.

No soldiers were injured in the incident.
