Israeli Forces Shoot, Kill a Palestinian Woman in Hebron


Israeli forces shot and killed, on Sunday, a Palestinian woman near the Ibrahimi Mosque in the southern occupied West Bank city of Hebron, the Palestinian Ministry of Health has confirmed.

Soldiers opened fire with live rounds at the young woman, identified as; Maha Kazem Awad Al-Zaatari, 24, from Abu Daajan area in Hebron, and denied medical teams from entering the site, allowing the injured woman to succumb to her serious wounds.

Medical crews were not allowed to provide life saving treatment to the injured woman after the army declared the area a ‘closed military zone’.

The Hebrew Channel Seven reported that the woman was “targeted with bullets” following an alleged stabbing attempt, however these claims have not been substantiated.

Earlier on Sunday, Israeli forces shot and killed a Palestinian woman, identified as Ghada Ibrahim Sabatien, 45, at a military roadblock near the village of Husan, west of the southern West Bank city of Bethlehem.
