Photos:Israeli soldier Killed Veiled Teenage Palestinian Student

This is the moment an armed Israeli soldier was involved in a stand-off with a veiled Palestinian woman - just seconds before she was killed for trying to stab a serviceman to death.

Hadeel al-Hashlamon, 18, was shot at a West Bank checkpoint yesterday, as tensions continued to simmer ahead of this week's major Jewish and Muslim holidays.
Photographs taken in the moments before she was gunned down reveal how at least two soldiers had their guns trained on the veiled teenager just before she was killed. 
Later the military said forces opened fire and 'identified a hit' following the incident in the West Bank city of Hebron.
The university student was taken to an Israeli hospital in a critical condition and her father, Salah al-Hashlamon, said she later died of her injuries. The soldier was not wounded.
