Israeli soldiers assaulted, on Saturday morning, a Palestinian woman after an alleged stabbing attempt in the southern occupied West Bank city of Hebron, according to the Palestinian News & Information Agency (WAFA).

The incident took place at an army roadblock near the Ibrahimi Mosque, where the woman, identified as Sadyeh Salem Farajallah, 65, by local sources, reportedly attempted to stab an illegal Israeli settler.

Israeli troops assaulted the elderly woman causing her to lose consciousness, and prevented medical crews from providing first aid treatment.

A video by Human Rights Defenders shows the woman laying on the ground, her condition was unknown at the time of this report.

Quds Press reported that Israeli soldiers took the woman to an interrogation center.

Unconfirmed reports by Israeli sources stated that the woman was shot, and that a 38 year old Israeli settler was lightly injured and was treated at the scene.
