JERUSALEM, Nov 9 : A Palestinian woman attempted to attack Israeli security guards with a knife at a checkpoint in the north of the occupied West Bank on Monday before being shot dead, officials said.
Guards fired warning shots after the woman was seen approaching a checkpoint near the city of Qalqilya with the weapon. She was shot after refusing to stop, the Israeli defence ministry said. Palestinian police identified her as Rasha Uweisseh, 23 and from Qalqilya.
The incident is the latest in a weeks-long wave of violence. It came as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu arrived in Washington to meet US President Barack Obama for the first time in more than a year.
Netanyahu's meeting with Obama will centre on US defence aid to Israel following the July nuclear accord between major powers and Iran, but the violence between Israelis and Palestinians is also expected to be discussed.    ?AFP
