Israeli border guards have shot a Palestinian woman in the legs in what is being reported as an attempted stabbing attack at the Qalandia checkpoint near Jerusalem.
The Israeli police released a statement, saying: "Security guards at the Qalandia checkpoint spotted the suspect approaching them and called to stop several times. When she continued to run towards they initiated an arrest procedure and fired into the lower torso."
A knife was subsequently found in the suspect's bag, the statement added. The woman was described in media reports as being lightly injured, with the police saying that she was "conscious."
Earlier on Tuesday, the IDF demolished 11 homes in Qalandia, having notified the residents on Monday that the homes would be destroyed. There is no evidence so far to suggest that the two incidents are linked.
