A young Palestinian woman shot and wounded by Israeli troops after she reportedly attempted to stab a soldier at a checkpoint in the occupied West Bank has died, sources have told Al Jazeera.

The woman, named as a 19-year-old university student, was wounded at the checkpoint near the centre of Hebron around 8.30am on Tuesday.

"The attacker attempted to stab a soldier," an Israeli army spokeswoman said, explaining that the soldier then fired live ammunition at her "lower extremities". 

It later emerged that she was shot several times, including in the chest.

The soldier was not wounded.

The army said the woman was transferred to a hospital in Israel after the incident. However, a video posted by the news agency PalMedia shows the woman being left to bleed on the ground after she was shot and then being roughly pulled out of the frame of a camera.

Speaking to Al Jazeera, Hebron resident Issa Amro identified the woman as 19-year-old Hadeel Salah al-Hashlamon.

"Now the soldiers have increased their numbers throughout the city," said Amro, who is the coordinator of the Hebron-based Youth Against Settlements monitoring group. 

According to Amro, clashes broke out between Palestinian youth and Israeli soldiers in the area following the shooting and "are still ongoing across the city".
