Tel Aviv: A Palestinian woman attempted to stab Israeli police in Jerusalem`s Old City on Tuesday and was shot dead, Israeli authorities said, the latest in a five-month wave of such attacks.

Israeli police said the woman moved toward border police officers, pulled a knife from her bag and sought to stab them near Damascus Gate, the main entrance used by Palestinians to enter the walled Old City where several attacks have occurred.
