One female Israeli settler killed, another one wounded in stabbing attacks

A pregnant Israeli woman was wounded in a stabbing attack in the West Bank settlement of Tekoa, in Gush Etzion, according to initial reports. Medical personal said she suffered moderate-to-serious wounds.
The woman was in a warehouse when she was attacked by a Palestinian man, who was shot by a settlement resident. The attacker, who was previously reported killed, is now said to be in serious condition.
She suffered injuries to her upper body. They said that the woman was fully conscious before she was taken to hospital for further treatment.
The incident took place inside the settlement, as did another stabbing on Sunday. 39-year-old Dafna Meir was stabbed to death inside her home in the West Bank settlement of Otniel after a struggle with the attacker.
