JERUSALEM:- A female Palestinian tried to stab an Israeli soldier Thursday near the West Bank city of Tulkarem and was shot dead, the army said, the latest in a series of such incidents since October. Details of the Palestinian’s identity were not yet clear, including her age.  The incident at a military post around Anabta village in the occupied West Bank came a day ahead of an international meeting in Paris on reviving Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts. “Moments ago an assailant, armed with a knife, attempted to stab a soldier at a military post near the village of Anabta,” the army said in a statement.–AFP
