A female Arab terrorist was neutralized on Monday morning while attempting to conduct a stabbing attack at Eliyahu Crossing on Highway 55, between the towns of Alfei Menashe and Karnei Shomron in Samaria.
She had approached the crossing with a drawn knife, and after she ignored numerous calls by security personnel for her to stop they were forced to open fire, killing her immediately.
The crossing was closed to all traffic as a result of the attack attempt, before being reopened just over 30 minutes later.
A suicide note was later found on the body of the female terrorist.
The attacker was later identified by Palestinian Authority police as 23-year-old Rasha Uweisseh from Qalqilya.
We have photos of the knife and suicide note:
Now, look how the official Palestinian Authority news agency reports this:
Israeli soldiers Monday shot dead a Palestinian young woman at a checkpoint near Qalqilia, in the northwestern West Bank, according to medical sources.What "rights groups" are they referring to?
The Ministry of Health said 23-year-old Rasha Ewessi was shot dead by Israeli soldiers at ‘Al-Yahou’ checkpoint outside the city after allegedly attempting to stab one of the soldiers.
Today’s extrajudicial murder brings the number of Palestinians killed by Israeli fire since the beginning of the unrest erupting early October 2015 to 80, including 17 children and four women.
Multiple rights groups have long accused the Israeli military of fabricating scenarios to justify extraterritorial murder of Palestinians. In the many cases were Israeli soldiers accused Palestinians of attempting to carry out a stabbing attack, few were proven to correct.
Amnesty International, of course. The news agency then goes on to quote Amnesty's report that ignored evidence showing intent to kill on the part of the would-be murderer, and that purposefully minimized the danger to soldiers and police by pretending that their body armor would perfectly protect them from knives and firebombs.
