Street violence in Israel has claimed the lives of 11 Israelis and at least 72 Palestinians in the past five weeks.


Israeli authorities on Sunday (November 8) released a video showing a Palestinian woman stabbing a security guard at the entrance of a Jewish settlement in the West Bank.

The security guard then shot and wounded the woman, an Israeli military spokesperson said. The woman has died of her injuries, Spanish news agency EFE reported.

The street attack and several others injured six Israelis over the course of the day.

Near the Israeli settlement of Tapuach in the occupied West Bank, a Palestinian man rammed his car into a bus stop, injuring four people. He was shot dead by Israeli police.

In the village of Nabi Ilyas, two Palestinians stabbed a Jewish settler in the stomach and ran away. The settler managed to drive to an Israeli checkpoint where he was cared for, according to Israel’s defence ministry.

Since the beginning of October in Israel, almost daily street attacks have claimed the lives of 11 Israelis and at least 72 Palestinians.

Muslim anger has been stoked by increasing visits made by Jewish groups and right-wing Israelis to the al-Aqsa mosque compound in Jerusalem, on a site also revered by Jews as Temple Mount.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is due in Washington on Monday (November 9) to meet US President Barack Obama for the first time in more than a year. Netanyahu said the meeting would focus on regional issues — including the Syrian crisis — and on strengthening the security of Israel.
