Palestinian Woman Stabs Israeli Security Officer

Israeli media outlets are reporting on another stabbing attack by a Palestinian against an Israeli. In this incident it was a Palestinian woman clad in black Muslim garb from head to toe who sauntered up to a security checkpoint in the Israeli town of Beitar Illit.

Surveillance video shows the woman walking up the side of a road to the checkpoint. A male security guard politely stops her. The woman presents her ID as the two converse.

The guard is completely at ease and does not keep a safe distance from the woman. As the guard appears to be checking the woman’s ID via a portable device the woman casually puts her right hand in her purse as if looking for something.

She suddenly pulls out a large knife and attempts to stab the security guard who raises his arms and steps back.

The 1:14 video ends there as the guard and the attacker quickly move out of camera range as the guard retreats and the woman presses the attack. The guard was reported to have been lightly wounded before he was able to draw his gun and shoot the woman, critically wounding her.

The Jewish Press quotes an official as saying the woman’s goal was to stab Israelis at a bus stop past the checkpoint.

“Beitar Illit officials said: It appears that the terrorist was on her way to a bus stop [to attack Jews], and the guard prevented a worse attack.”
