Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) on Tuesday morning have shot dead a 50-year-old Palestinian woman in East Jerusalem, under the pretext of a “stabbing attempt.”
IOF shot-dead Fadwa Abu Tair from Sur Baher town, East Jerusalem, near Al-Hadid Gate of Jerusalem’s old city.
Israeli army spokeswoman, Luba Samari claimed that the police immediately shot Fadwa for her alleged attempt to stab an Israeli policeman.
Shortly after killing Fadwa, IOF kidnapped a girl from Qalandia checkpoint, claiming she has a knife.
Last Friday, IOF killed a Palestinian mother of four, Amani Sabateen (31), claimed that she tried to run over an Israeli soldier.
This morning as well, IOF kidnapped Manal Tamimi, a mother of six and prominent nonviolence resistance activist from her home in Al-Nabi Saleh.
Ironically, these violations come on the International Women’s Day, 8 March.
