VIDEO - A video posted on the Youtube video sharing website shows a young Palestinian woman stabbing a security guard at the Qalandiya checkpoint north of Jerusalem.


The attack took place on October 25. A female terrorist in her 20s pulled out a knife she had been hiding in her clothes and stabbed one of the security guard at the checkpoint in his lower abdomen.



The two-minute video shows the guards checking the woman's items in an x-ray machine. When shift their gaze from her for a moment, she seizes the opportunity to quickly pull out a knife and attack.


A Magen David Adom paramedic told Ynet on the day of the incident, "The guard was lying on the ground with a stab wound to his lower abdomen, and the young female terrorist was apprehended. The guard was in great pain; he was in a state of shock."


According to the rescue services, the stab wound was 5-centimeters deep (about 2 inches). The guard was treated at the scene and later evacuated to Jerusalem's Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem in moderate condition.


The assailant, a 21-year-old resident of the West Bank town of Ramallah, was taken in for questioning by the Jerusalem Police
