( A Palestinian woman was shot and killed by the Israel Defense Forces after she tried to stab an Israeli soldier at a checkpoint near the Palestinian town of Anabta on Thursday, marking the latest attack during the eight-month-long wave of Palestinian terror against Israeli soldiers and civilians.

The Palestinian terror attacks—mostly stabbings, car-rammings, and shootings—have claimed the lives of 34 people since last fall, but have slowed down during the last few months.
