Palestinian teen girl shot dead by Israeli guard

AFP, JERUSALEM

AFP, JERUSALEM: A Palestinian teenage girl allegedly tried to stab an Israeli guard at a West Bank settlement on Saturday but was shot dead, police said, in the third settlement attack in a week.
“A 13-year-old Palestinian girl with a knife in her hand ran toward the civilian security guard at Anatot (settlement),” police spokeswoman Luba Samri said in a statement. “The guard opened fire, gravely wounding her and medics pronounced her dead shortly afterward.”
On Sunday a Palestinian teenager entered the southern West Bank settlement of Otniel and stabbed to death Dafna Meir, a 38-year-old nurse and mother of six, at her home.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pledged that the alleged assailant’s home would be demolished as a deterrent.
On Monday, a new knife attack on a street in Tekoa, another West Bank settlement, wounded a 30-year-old pregnant woman. The alleged assailant was 17.
A total of 156 Palestinians and 24 Israelis have been killed in three months of attacks since October 1, according to an AFP count.
