A Palestinian woman who stabbed an IDF soldier outside the northern West Bank settlement of Mevo Dotan on Thursday died from her wounds on Friday morning, according to Hillel Yaffa Medical Center in Hadera. The attacker was shot and wounded by a soldier.

Both the soldier, age 20, and the Palestinian assailant were rushed by Magen David Adom to Hillel Yaffa Medical Center in Hadera following the attack.

The soldier was lightly wounded in the upper part of his body; the attacker was critically wounded and underwent surgery.

On Tuesday evening, Border Police found a kitchen knife in the purse of a 17-year old Palestinian after they stopped and searched her at one of the pedestrian checkpoints near the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron.
