A Palestinian woman stabbed a female Israeli soldier in the neck at a checkpoint between Jerusalem and West Bank city of Bethlehem on Monday, according to Israeli security forces.

The Palestinian had arrived at the checkpoint, which has separate lines for men and women, and “pulled out a knife and stabbed a military policewoman,” a police statement said.

The Israeli Defense Forces emergency medical service Magen David Adom said the soldier was in moderate condition.

The reported stabbing is the most recent in a spate of attacks by Palestinians on Israel’s military in the Palestinian territories.

On June 21, a Palestinian stabbed and seriously wounded an Israeli border policeman at Damascus Gate outside East Jerusalem’s Old City before the officer shot the Palestinian, critically injuring him.

On Friday Israeli soldiers shot dead a Palestinian at a checkpoint in the Jordan Valley who they alleged was attempting to attack them.
