From the Times of Israel:

Palestinian teenager tried to stab a security guard at the entrance to a West Bank settlement on Saturday morning, and was shot dead.

The girl, 13, approached the entrance to Anatot, near Jerusalem, brandishing a knife, and attempted to stab the guard as he went to speak to her. There were no Israeli injuries in the incident.

“A 13-year-old Palestinian girl with a knife in her hand ran toward the civilian security guard at Anatot,” police spokeswoman Luba Samri said. “She had a knife and intended to die… The guard opened fire, gravely wounding her and medics pronounced her dead shortly afterward.”
