A Palestinian woman attempted to stab an IDF soldier in Hebron on Saturday afternoon, near the Cave of the Patriarchs.

The scene of the attack

Reports indicate that the soldiers from the IDF Kfir Brigade approached the woman, who seemed suspicious, and asked to search her belongings. She then pulled out a knife and attempted, unsuccessfully, to stab one of them. After being pushed back, she apparently collided with a Palestinian civilian in his early 30s, and proceeded to stab him. The soldiers then quickly shot and killed her.

The man, who is not suspected of being connected to the attack, was evacuated to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem. None of the soldiers were harmed.
