The female terrorist, who was shown in CCTV footage stabbing the guard as he inspected her ID, was identified as suspicious by security forces at the scene; they shot and injured her immediately, Arutz Sheva reports.
Security forces carefully checked her person for bombs as well before releasing the news to the press.
“Our teams treated a 35 year-old man with injuries to his hand at the scene,” Magen David Adom (MDA) spokesman Zaki Heller stated Sunday. “The attack was next to the entrance gate to Beitar Illit.”
A photo has emerged on Twitter of the terrorist’s alleged identity card, giving her name and identity as 23 year-old Halva Alian of Beit Lechem.
