The Knife Intifada continues, with daily attempted stabbings.

Today in Israel an Arab woman was shot dead by an Israeli security guard at Beitar Ilit. The woman was trying to reach a bus stop in the community, where presumably she would have stabbed waiting passengers or entered the bus and conducted a stabbing attack there.

That’s what the headlines emphasized.

Indeed, the Palestinian Authority is asserting that the woman was shot in an “alleged attack” – which is also how an Amnesty International official described it on Twitter.

Palestinian social media is spreading the image of the woman dead, without any reference to why she was killed:
