JERUSALEM – A Jerusalem hospital says an Israeli woman has died of the wounds she suffered in a Palestinian stabbing attack in a West Bank settlement the day before.
Hospital spokeswoman Hadar Elboim says 23-year-old Shlomit Kriegman died on Tuesday morning.
Police spokeswoman Luba Samri says Kriegman was wounded when two Palestinians went on a stabbing rampage outside a minimarket in Beit Horon on Monday. Another Israeli woman was moderately wounded before a security guard fatally shot both assailants.
Samri identified the attackers as Ibrahim Allan and Hussein Abu Gosh, both in their 20s.
Kriegman is the latest casualty in four months of Palestinian attacks that have claimed 26 people on the Israeli side. At least 149 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire, including 104 said by Israel to be attackers.
