A Palestinian woman brandishing a knife at the Qalandia checkpoint between Occupied Jerusalem and the northern West Bank was shot dead by Israeli security forces Wednesday, police and medical sources said.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said an unidentified "terrorist" had approached security forces at the vehicle passage of the checkpoint, ignoring calls to stop and pulling a knife before being shot in the leg.

Jerusalem's Hadassah hospital pronounced her dead.
