JERUSALEM (CNN) -- A knife-wielding woman who tried to attack a security checkpoint in the West Bank was shot by guards, the Israel Defense Ministry said.

"A woman terrorist arrived at the checkpoint located on Route 55 next to Alfei Menashe holding a knife," a Defense Ministry statement said.

Alfei Menashe is an Israeli settlement in the northern West Bank, west of Nablus.

"Security guards at the checkpoint called her to stop a few times, and when she didn't, they fired at her and neutralized the threat," the statement said.
