A Palestinian attacker stabbed and wounded a pregnant Israeli woman in the West Bank before being shot, Israeli officials said.

The attacker entered the Tekoa settlement on Monday and stabbed the 30-year-old woman before being shot by the settlement’s head of security, according to the Israeli military.

A spokeswoman for Jerusalem’s Shaarei Tzedek hospital said the woman was five months pregnant.

She said the woman was moderately wounded after being stabbed in the upper body, adding that there was no damage caused to the foetus.

Eli Bin, the head of Israel’s rescue service MDA, had earlier told Israeli Channel 10 TV that the woman was seriously wounded.

The attacker’s condition was not immediately known.
