The Guardian has no idea what the Arab stabber was holding in her hand

Evidently, the fact that several Israeli soldiers and security guards were standing in close proximity to the woman, while shouting at her to drop the "knife" (which she used moments earlier in an attempt to stab a security guard), didn't convince Guardian editors that she was in fact brandishing a knife!

An Arab woman (30-year-old Asraa Zidan Tawfik Abed) on Friday morning brandished a knife and attempted to stab a security guard in the Afula bus station. Soon after the attack, she was surrounded by Israeli security forces, who demanded that she drop her knife.  She refused to do so, and they shot her in the lower extremities.

She was taken to a hospital in Tiberias where she underwent surgery for her injuries.

Here’s the dramatic video of the incident.

The facts seem indisputable. 

Yet, here’s the text provided by Guardian editors to contextualize the video:
