A Palestinian woman was shot dead while carrying out a stabbing attack at an Israeli army checkpoint in the West Bank. The Al-Aksa Brigade said it sent the mother of five on a “suicide mission” to the Hawara checkpoint outside Nablus on Tuesday. The terrorist managed to stab and wound a female soldier before she was killed by troops. On Wednesday, a 17-year-old Palestinian attacked soldiers with a knife at nearby Beit Furik checkpoint. He was disarmed and arrested.
