Armed Palestinian Woman Caught Trying To Infiltrate Israel from West Bank

A Palestinian woman concealing a rifle was caught trying to cross through the West Bank security fence into Israel.

The woman, who had the rifle strapped to her back, told interrogators on Sunday that she had been sent by Hamas to perpetrate a terror attack on Israelis, Israel’s Channel 2 reported.

She tried to enter central Israel from the Palestinian city of Kalkilya.

It was the latest in a series of attempted and successful Palestinian attacks on Israeli civilians and soldiers in recent weeks.
