The IDF said on Wednesday morning that it shot and wounded a female suspected terrorist who was armed with two knives and who was approaching the West Bank settlement of Yitzhar.

The IDF soldiers said the woman came within ten meters of the settlements boundary road then chased her for 300 meters towards the Palestinian village of Madama.

The soldiers fired a warning shot for the suspect to stop before they shot her, the IDF said. IDF soldiers provided the suspect with medical treatment at the scene before she was evacuated.  Her medical condition was unclear. 

Israel Radio reported that while the security incident was taking place, Yitzhar residents were asked to stay inside their homes.
