Al Jazeera's deceitful headline: Young Palestinian woman shot by Israeli forces dies
(Ramallah) Israeli forces shot a female Palestinian attacker after she attempted to stab a soldier at a West Bank checkpoint on Tuesday, the military said, as tensions continued to simmer ahead of this week's major Jewish and Muslim holidays. The woman later died of her injuries, according to her father.

The military said forces opened fire and "identified a hit" following the incident in the West Bank city of Hebron. The woman was identified as 18-year-old university student Hadeel al-Hashlamon. She was taken to an Israeli hospital in critical condition and her father, Salah al-Hashlamon, said she later died of her injuries. The soldier was not wounded.
Palestinian terrorist killed when his own grenade detonates prematurely
(JPost) A Palestinian man was killed on Monday night when a grenade intended to be used to harm Israeli soldiers near the West Bank city of Hebron apparently detonated prematurely while still in his hands.

The IDF discovered the body after receiving a report saying a road block made up of rocks was set up near Hursa, southwest of Hebron. Soldiers from an IDF unit sent to the area heard a blast, and in searches found the body of the Palestinian man.

"An initial check of the incident found that the Palestinian was killed by a grenade that he tried to hurl at a military vehicle," the IDF Spokesperson's Unit said

A Palestinian hospital official said the 23-year-old man was showered in shrapnel and also shot in the head, though the military said it had not shot him.
