BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian woman was reportedly shot outside the illegal Israeli settlement of Ariel on Tuesday afternoon, after she allegedly attempted to carry out a stabbing attack.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma'an that a Palestinian woman attempted to stab a soldier at a junction west of Ariel on Tuesday afternoon, when she was shot and detained by Israeli forces.

No Israelis were injured in the incident, the spokesperson added.

The woman was later identified by locals as Jamileh Daoud Hasan Jaber, 17, from the town of al-Zawiya in the western part of Salfit.

Palestinian Red Crescent (PRC) spokeswoman Errab Foqoha told Ma'an that Israeli forces prevented an ambulance from the organization from reaching the scene and providing medical assistance, but that an Israeli ambulance was later seen taking the woman away. Foqoha added that the woman appeared to be alive when she was taken away.

A spokesperson for the Rabin Medical Center told Ma'an initially that Jaber was taken to the hospital and remained in critical condition.

However, a few hours later, the spokesperson said that Jaber's condition was no longer critical, but would remain at the hospital for treatment.
Israeli news outlet Ynet initially reported that the Palestinian woman was shot in the chest and critically wounded.
