The attacker was holding a bomb in her hand, the report states, but it went off prematurely sending her in all directions. She was intending to kill Jews but ended up killing only herself.
She was a teenager named Raqqiyeh Abu Eid. She was pronounced dead on scene by paramedics and her remains were given to the Palestinian Authority in Hebron.
No Israeli military were hurt in the jihad attack.
Earlier Saturday, a 13-year-old Palestinian girl tried to kill a security guard as she chased him with a knife. The guard shot and killed her in self-defense. The attack took place outside the West Bank settlement of Anatot, Judea and Samaria.
How sad that such hatred for the Jews is taught in Islam. How sad to lose a child over this nonsense.
