Israeli military shoot woman, target ambulance in Jenin

 

JENIN, Friday, August 7, 2020 (WAFA) – Israeli military dawn Friday shot a Palestinian woman and targeted an ambulance in a predawn raid in the northern West Bank city of Jenin, said local sources.

The sources said that Israeli forces barged their way into the Jenin city neighborhood of al-Jaberiyyat, where they interrogated and threatened to re-arrest a former prisoner after breaking into his house.

The raid sparked confrontations during which Israeli troops opened fire towards local teens who attempted to block their passage.

Director of the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) Mahmoud al-Sa‘di confirmed that a 27-year-old woman was hit in the chest with a bullet fired by Israeli forces while in her house during the raid.

He added that the forces directly opened fire on an ambulance trying to reach and evacuate the casualty from her house, with two bullets penetrating the ambulance.
