A Palestinian woman was shot and injured after an alleged stabbing attempt in Afula on Friday, Israel‘s army and police said.
Israeli police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld said a Palestinian woman attempted to stab an Israeli security guard and was shot at the scene.
Israeli media said she was seriously injured.
A video of the incident shows the Palestinian woman surrounded by Israeli security forces at the bus station and appearing to hold an object in her hand.
Amid shouting, the security forces open fire multiple times at the woman, who drops to the ground. She appears to pose no threat to the heavily armed forces when she was shot.
The latest incident comes amid widespread unrest over the past few weeks, with an upsurge in demonstrations and stabbing attacks since Oct. 1 which have seen four Israelis, including two settlers, killed.
On Friday, Muhammad Fares Abdullah al-Jaabari, 19, was shot dead in the illegal Kiryat Arba settlement near Hebron after stabbing a border police officer.
