A Palestinian woman was shot and killed Friday afternoon after her car crashed into a stationary vehicle, lightly injuring two Israelis in the Al-Khalil district of the southern occupied West Bank.
An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an that after a Palestinian woman allegedly carried out a car-ramming attack near, Israeli forces responded by firing towards the “assailant,” killing her.
The Palestinian Ministry of Health confirmed her death, identifying her as Majd al-Khadour. Israeli sources said she was 18 years old.
The two Israelis, reportedly a man and woman in their 50s, were immediately evacuated.
Friday’s incident is the latest in nine months of dozens of Palestinian attacks, including stabbings, shootings and assaults using cars.
The attacks have killed 32 Israelis and two Americans. More than 200 Palestinians have been killed during that time, most of them described by Israel as attackers. The rest died in clashes.
The assaults were once near-daily incidents but they have become less frequent in recent weeks.
