Israeli soldiers shoot Palestinian for 'not stopping at crossing'
The girl was shot at the Eliyahu checkpoint in eastern Qalqilya, near the illegal settlement of Alfei Menashe in northern West Bank.
She had approached the crossing by foot while carrying a bag, the Israeli defence ministry said.
"Crossing security officials called to her to stop and fired warning shots into the air," it said in a statement.
"She continued toward the crossing and security officials fired warning shots toward the ground in order to stop her."
She was then detained by Israeli forces who searched her and found no traces of explosives or weapons, Ma'an news agency reported.
The teenager was taken to Meir Hospital in Kfar Sava, central Israel, where she received treatment for injuries sustained in her legs, the news agency added.
The Palestinian health ministry was unable to provide further details on her identity.
A new surge of violence began on Friday after Palestinians wrapped up the Muslim celebration of Eid al-Adha and as Israel tightened security ahead of major Jewish holidays in October.
This latest death raises the number of alleged attackers killed since Friday to eight – seven Palestinians and a Jordanian – while nine Israelis have been wounded in the same period.
Violence since October 2015 has killed at least 230 Palestinians and 34 Israelis. Israeli troops have been accused of using excessive force in many cases.
Israel denies such charges, claiming stringent "security measures" were necessary to counter attacks. It claims that a Palestinian campaign of incitement is fanning the violence.
Palestinians say the rise in knife attacks on Israeli soldiers is rooted in frustration stemming from nearly five decades of Israeli military occupation.
