Terrorist killed after stabbing Border Police officer in Hebron

A Palestinian woman was killed by Israeli security forces at the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron on Sunday after she stabbed a Border Police officer in the neck.

The officer sustained minor wounds in the attack, the Kiryat Arba Municipality said in a statement.

This is the latest incident in a spate of recent terrorist attacks across the country. On Thursday, a terrorist from Jenin opened fire at the patrons of a bar in central Tel Aviv, killing three. Fourteen Israelis have been murdered by terrorists since late March.
