An Israeli settler has been wounded in a suspected Palestinian stabbing attack near the settlement of Gush Etzion in the occupied West Bank.
The man was reportedly stabbed by a Palestinian female before Israeli security forces shot the attacker.
She is in a serious condition and was taken to the Hadassah University Hospital for treatment, according to paramedics.
"The Palestinian who allegedly tried to stab him was shot, and army and police medical teams were treating her," said one paramedic. "At this point, the situation is under control and there are no additional casualties."
The attack comes amid a wave of stabbing incidents by Palestinians against Israelis last month which saw a 25-year-old woman killed and two people wounded near a settlement in the West Bank and an Israeli soldier killed in Tel Aviv.
In 2013, only one Israeli or Palestinian was killed in a stabbing attack. Israeli settler Evyatar Borovsky was killed at Tapuah Junction in the West Bank while waiting at a settler hitchhiking station.
