A Palestinian stabbed a woman in a West Bank settlement Monday and was shot by security personnel, the Israeli army and medics said, in the second such incident over the last 24 hours.
The 30-year-old woman stabbed in the Tekoa settlement south of Jerusalem was reported to have moderate wounds. There were conflicting reports on the alleged attacker's condition, with Israeli medics saying he had been taken to hospital and Palestinian officials reporting him dead.
Since Israel started using force against Palestinian protesters in October, 155 Palestinians lost their lives, while 23 Israelis were killed.
