Israeli regime forces on Saturday shot dead another Palestinian, this time a woman who was allegedly trying to stab an Israeli soldier in the occupied West Bank.

The military said no Israeli was injured in the alleged stabbing attack in the city of al-Khalil (Hebron).

Since the start of October 2015, at least 175 Palestinians, including women and children, have been killed by Israeli forces in what is regarded as the third Palestinian Intifada.

The Israeli violence against defenseless Palestinians living in the occupied territories has added to the already tense situation there.

Israel imposed in August 2015 restrictions on the entry of Palestinian worshipers into the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East al-Quds.

The restrictions have caused tension among the Palestinian population, who are already frustrated over an increasing number of violent acts demonstrated by Israeli settlers, backed by soldiers, frequently storming the al-Aqsa Mosque.

The Palestinians say the Tel Aviv regime seeks to change the status quo of the holy Muslim compound.

Al-Aqsa Mosque is the third holiest site in Islam after Masjid al-Haram in Mecca and Masjid al-Nabawi in Medina.
