JERUSALEM (AP) — An Israeli woman died on Tuesday of wounds she suffered in a Palestinian stabbing attack in a West Bank settlement the previous day, according to a Jerusalem hospital.

Hospital spokeswoman Hadar Elboim identified the victim as 23-year-old Shlomit Krigman.

Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said Krigman 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, she said. Police found two homemade pipe bombs near the scene of the attack, Samri said.

Security camera footage showed the owner of the store using a shopping cart to prevent the two attackers from entering.

Samri identified the attackers as Ibrahim Allan, who was in his 20s, and Hussein Abu Gosh, who was a teenager.

The attack in Beit Horon, which lies northwest of Jerusalem, is the third stabbing inside an Israeli settlement since last week.

Krigman is the latest fatality in four months of Palestinian attacks — mostly stabbings, shootings and also car-ramming assaults — that have killed 26 people on the Israeli side. At least 149 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire, including 104 said by Israel to be attackers.


This story has been corrected to show that one of the attackers was in his 20s, the other was a teenager.
