Palestinian woman shot after attacking Israeli guard

Israeli police say a Palestinian woman was shot after she tried to stab an Israeli in northern Israel.


Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said the woman pulled out a knife and tried to stab a security guard at the entrance to the bus station in the town of Afula.

The guard opened fire and injured the Palestinian before she could hurt anybody Friday afternoon, Samri said.

A Palestinian stabbed a soldier in Afula Thursday night.
