A Palestinian woman was shot dead by Israeli police after she tried to stab some police officers guarding the Old City of Yerushalayim.
The woman instantly died due to her gunshot wounds.
In the initial police investigation, the woman approached officers outside the Chain Gate (Shaar HaShalshelet), an entrance to Har HaBayis.
When she was already near the police officers she drew a knife and tried to stab them.
As a form of self-defense, the police officers shot her leading to her death.
The police said no one was injured in the attack.
The identity of the woman has also not yet been established as of the moment.
Meanwhile, the Palestinian media said the woman is a resident of a town near Jenin, where tensions have run high following the escape by Palestinian prisoners from an Israeli prison.
