BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- An Israeli security guard on Sunday shot a Palestinian woman after she stabbed him at the entrance to the illegal Israeli settlement of Beitar Illit, near the Gush Etzion settlement bloc in the southern occupied West Bank, an Israeli army spokesperson said.

Israeli media initially reported that the Palestinian woman was shot and killed, although the Israeli liaison department later said she was in moderate condition.

The security guard was lightly injured during the incident, an Israeli army spokesperson said.

Security footage believed to be of the stabbing emerged on social media shortly after the incident, which shows a woman pull a knife from her purse and lunge at a security guard.

The head of Israel's civil liaison affairs, Danny Sandler, said in a statement that the video footage came from surveillance cameras and "proves that the woman planned a stabbing attack."

He called for Palestinian "media and social media" to stop "incitement," saying that further attacks would harm the lives of Palestinians and the economy.

The footage does not show the shooting of the woman, identified by her family as Hilwa Salim Darwish, from Husan village west of Bethlehem.

The attack came just hours after another Palestinian was shot dead near the Tappuah Junction south of Nablus after allegedly ramming a car into three Israelis.

Another Israeli was shot and injured in the leg at the scene, with Israeli media reporting that the Israeli army was investigating whether Israeli forces had been aiming at the Palestinian driver.

One of the four Israelis injured in the first attack on Sunday is reportedly in critical condition.

Recent attacks come as Israeli intelligence said earlier this week that a recent lull in violence was unlikely to be long-term, citing high levels of frustration among the Palestinian public and a weakened Palestinian Authority.
