JERUSALEM (AFP) –  A Palestinian terrorist 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. Social media distributed this image after the incident:

There were conflicting reports on the attacker’s condition, with Israeli medics saying he had been taken to hospital and Palestinian officials reporting him dead.

The incident follows an attack on Sunday that saw a Palestinian stab an Israeli woman to death inside her home in another West Bank settlement.
