Burka clad woman stabs security guard before being shot
A civilian security guard on Sunday shot a female Palestinian assailant who stabbed and lightly wounded him, as he stood at his post, just outside the Betar Illit settlement, which is located a short distance away from Jerusalem.
The incident was caught on the municipalities security cameras. An emergency dispatcher saw a Palestinian woman on one of the cameras who she believed looked suspicious. The woman, 22-year-old Halva Aliyan, was dressed from head to toe in traditional black garb, with only her face showing. She carried a purse and walked toward the gate of the city, which has a population of 47,000.
The dispatcher alerted the security guard who then stopped her and asked to see her identification card, which showed that she was born in the nearby Palestinian city of Bethlehem. As the guard focused on checking her card, Aliyan slowly reached into her purse and pulled out a knife. She then lunged at the guard and quickly tried to stab him.
