Israeli forces have killed a Palestinian woman following what they alleged was a stabbing attack at a checkpoint in the occupied territories.
Axar.az reports citing Press TV that the victim, whose identity was not immediately known, was killed at the Qalandia checkpoint between Jerusalem al-Quds and the north of the West Bank on Wednesday.
An Israeli official claimed the Palestinian woman had approached forces at the vehicle passage of the checkpoint, ignoring calls to stop and pulling out a knife before being shot in the leg.
Medics allegedly treated her at the scene and then evacuated her to Hadassah hospital in Jerusalem al-Quds for further treatment, a police statement said.
She was later pronounced dead, however.
The cause of her death was not clear.
