An Israeli woman has died of injuries she suffered in a Palestinian stabbing attack in a West Bank settlement, according to a Jerusalem hospital.

Hospital spokeswoman Hadar Elboim identified the victim as 23-year-old Shlomit Krigman.

Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said Ms Krigman was wounded when two Palestinian attackers went on a stabbing rampage outside a mini-market in Beit Horon on Monday.

Another Israeli woman suffered minor injuries before a security guard shot both dead.

Police found two home-made pipe bombs near the scene of the attack, Ms Samri said.

Security camera footage showed the owner of the store using a shopping trolley to prevent the two attackers from entering.

Ms Samri identified the attackers as Ibrahim Allan, who was in his 20s, and Hussein Abu Gosh, who was a teenager.

The attack in Beit Horon, which lies north-west of Jerusalem, is the third stabbing inside an Israeli settlement since last week.

Ms Krigman is the latest fatality in four months of Palestinian attacks – mostly stabbings, shootings and also car-ramming assaults – that have killed 26 people on the Israeli side.

At least 149 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire, including 104 said by Israel to be attackers.

Engaging

Being a community platform means so much more than producing a newspaper and website. One of our proudest roles is media partnering with our invaluable charities to amplify the outstanding work they do to help us all.

Celebrating

There’s no shortage of oys in the world but Jewish News takes every opportunity to celebrate the joys too, through projects like Night of Heroes, 40 Under 40 and other compelling countdowns that make the community kvell with pride.

Pioneering

In the first collaboration between media outlets from different faiths, Jewish News worked with British Muslim TV and Church Times to produce a list of young activists leading the way on interfaith understanding.

Campaigning

Royal Mail issued a stamp honouring Holocaust hero Sir Nicholas Winton after a Jewish News campaign attracted more than 100,000 backers. Jewish News also produces special editions of the paper highlighting pressing issues including mental health and Holocaust remembrance.

Easy access

In an age when news is readily accessible, Jewish News provides high-quality content free online and offline, removing any financial barriers to connecting people.

Voice of our community to wider society

The Jewish News team regularly appears on TV, radio and on the pages of the national press to comment on stories about the Jewish community. Easy access to the paper on the streets of London also means Jewish News provides an invaluable window into the community for the country at large.

We hope you agree all this is worth preserving.
