Violence in territories where Palestinians seek statehood has simmered since US-sponsored peace talks stalled in 2014. Recent weeks have seen an escalation, including deadly Palestinian attacks inside Israel.

In a statement, the Israeli army said “an assailant armed with a knife advanced towards an IDF (Israel Defence Force) soldier who was conducting routine security activity” near Al Aroub village.

“The soldiers responded with live fire,” it said.

A hospital in the nearby Palestinian city of Hebron confirmed the woman’s death.

The Palestinian foreign ministry condemned the killing as a “field execution”.

“She was en route to her work and there were no incidents there or danger to the criminals,” the ministry said in a statement.

The Palestinian Prisoners Club, an organisation that monitors the welfare of Palestinians jailed by Israel, said the 31-year-old woman had been briefly jailed by Israel earlier this year. It did not immediately elaborate.
