Israel: Palestinian teenager to be tried immediately when out of coma

PNN/JERUSALEM/

After being attacked by an Israeli settler in Jerusalem earlier this week, the Palestinian teen Shrouk Dowiyyat was submitted to a surgery at an Israeli hospital. Despite her critical conditions, she will be taken to trial by Israeli authorities.

According to The Palestinian Information Center, she underwent a surgery to transplant an artery taken from her leg, in her shoulder while in coma connected to artificial breathing devices.

Israeli doctors stated that her health condition was stable after the surgery. After she is awake from the coma, she will be taken to a trial disregarding her critical conditions, as her sister revealed.

Remember the case:

Shrouk was seriously injured after shot by an 36-year-old Israeli settler, who claims that she tried to stab him outside the Lion’s Gate (Bab Al-Asbat), in the Old City of Jerusalem.

According to Shehab News Agency, eyewitnesses said the Palestinian girl from Sur Baher town, east Jerusalem, was being attacked and harassed by the settler who tried to remove her hijab (veil), and when she pushed him away, he shot her, supported by IOF.
