Israeli woman dies after West Bank shop stabbing

An Israeli woman has died of injuries she suffered in a Palestinian stabbing attack in a West Bank settlement, according to a Jerusalem hospital.

Hospital spokeswoman Hadar Elboim identified the victim as 23-year-old Shlomit Krigman.

Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said Ms Krigman was wounded when two Palestinians went on a stabbing rampage outside a mini-market in Beit Horon on Monday.

Another Israeli woman suffered minor injuries before a security guard shot both assailants dead, she said.

Police found two home-made pipe bombs near the scene of the attack, Ms Samri said.

Security camera footage showed the owner of the store using a shopping trolley to prevent the two attackers from entering.

Ms Samri identified the attackers as Ibrahim Allan, who was in his 20s, and Hussein Abu Gosh, who was a teenager.

The attack in Beit Horon, which lies north-west of Jerusalem, is the third stabbing inside an Israeli settlement since last week.

Ms Krigman is the latest fatality in four months of Palestinian attacks - mostly stabbings, shootings and also car-ramming assaults – that have killed 26 people on the Israeli side.

At least 149 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire, including 104 said by Israel to be attackers.
