Updated: Israeli soldiers killed, Wednesday morning, a Palestinian woman at the entrance of the al-‘Arroub refugee camp, north of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.
The slain woman has been identified as Ghofran Haroun Warasna, 31, from Shiokh al-Arroub village, northeast of Hebron.
Dr. Yousef Takrouri, the director of the Al-Ahli Hospital in Hebron, said the woman passed away before the medics could rush her to the hospital, adding that the doctors tried to revive her, but she succumbed to her serious wounds.
Dr. Yousef added that the soldiers shot Ghofran with a live round in the left side of her chest, under the armpit, adding that the bullet went through her heart and exited from the right side of her chest.
He also said the soldiers did not allow anybody to reach her and left her bleeding on the ground for twenty minutes before eventually allowing the Palestinian medics to reach her.
The slain young woman studied media and journalism at Hebron University and was active in documenting the Israeli military violations. In addition, she worked for at least three Radio stations in Hebron.
A few days ago, Ghofran started a new job at Dream Radio in Hebron and was on her way to work.
Her cousin, Yousef Warasna, said that he was heading to work in his car with his son, and was informed she was shot and killed.
An eyewitness said the woman was walking in the area heading to her work and did not attempt to attack the soldiers when they shot her near their military tower.
Palestinian Prime Minister Dr. Mohammad Shtayyeh condemned the Israeli crime and demanded the International Community act on prosecuting Israel for its ongoing and escalating violations against the civilians.
“This organized terrorism is encouraged by the absence of sanctions and punitive measures against the illegal Israeli occupation of Palestine,” he said, “The lack of punishment means another crime will be committed…”.
“The International Criminal Court sent forty investigators to Ukraine in less than two months,” Dr. Shtayyeh stated, “Yet, nothing has been done to prosecute Israel for its crimes that have been ongoing for decades.”
Soldiers Seriously Injure A Palestinian Woman In Hebron

Israeli soldiers shot and seriously injured, Wednesday morning, a Palestinian woman at the entrance of the al-‘Arroub refugee camp, north of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.
The woman, who is still yet to be officially identified, is from the Shiokh al-Arroub area, northeast of Hebron.
She was shot at the entrance of Palestine Technical University – Kadoorie near the main entrance of the al-‘Arroub refugee camp.
The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) said its medics rushed to the scene, but the soldiers stopped them and prevented them from approaching her to render the needed first aid for at least twenty minutes.
The PRCS added that the young woman was shot with a live round in the chest and is in a critical condition at the Al-Ahli Palestinian Hospital in Hebron.
The Israeli army claimed the soldiers shot the woman when she allegedly attempted to stab them, adding that the soldiers “neutralized the woman.” No soldiers were hurt in the purported attack.
In incidents of alleged stabbings or attempted stabbings, the Israeli army does not allow the Palestinian medics to approach the wounded and instead calls for an Israeli ambulance, leaving the wounded bleeding to “secure the scene” and ensure they have the person in custody regardless of their condition.
However, the soldiers allowed the Palestinian medics to transfer her to a Palestinian hospital in Hebron city instead of taking her to an Israeli hospital, an issue that casts serious doubts on the military allegations.
