An Israeli colonialist settler killed, Wednesday, a Palestinian woman near the illegal Kiryat Arba colony, in Hebron city, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.
Palestinian sources said the colonist shot Wafa’ Abdul-Rahim Barade’ey, 34 while walking on the main street near the colony before the soldiers rushed to the scene and prevented Palestinian medics from approaching her.
The woman was later declared dead, and the soldiers took her corpse after refusing to hand it to the Palestinian medics.
The woman is a married mother of five children, from Bani Neim town, east of Hebron.
In addition, Israeli colonists attacked Palestinian journalists and injured a reporter, identified as Fadi Khallaf, a cameraman with Palestine TV.
The colonists also threatened to shoot the journalists with live fire if they do not stop filing and leave the area.
While the army claimed that Palestinian woman was armed and opened fire with M-16 rifle, and some Israeli media outlets took the narrative for granted and even reported the incident was an attempted stabbing attack, pictures from the scene show the woman posed no threat to the soldiers, or anybody else. What they show is an armed paramilitary settler talking a knee to aim before killing her.
