Israeli forces kill mother of 9-month-old baby

Israeli forces left the mother bleeding to death

Israeli occupation executed 18-year-old Palestinian mother on Friday afternoon near the West Bank city of Al-Khalil.

“It was a mere car accident and it was far away from the railway station, which the Israelis claimed she wanted to hit,” Lo’ai Ja’bari, an eyewitness, told Days of Palestine

Days of Palestine, West Bank -Israeli occupation executed 18-year-old Palestinian mother on Friday afternoon near the West Bank city of Al-Khalil.

The mother was identified as Majd Likhdour from the village of Bani Na’im while the incident took place at Elias Junction, located at the entrance to illegal Israeli Jewish settlement of Kiryat Arba in Al-Khalil.

While the Israeli occupation had accused the Palestinian woman of trying to carry out a car-ramming attack near a railway station, eyewitness refuted the claims, stating that was an accidental collision.

“It was a mere car accident and it was far away from the railway station, which the Israelis claimed she wanted to hit,” Lo’ai Ja’bari, an eyewitness, told Days of Palestine.

“The damage caused to the cars proves that it was not an intended accident,” Ja’bari said while weeping as he recalled the scene. “As soon as the Israeli soldiers at the Elias Junction knew she was a Palestinian woman, they showered her with live bullets,” he added.

He continued: “Then, they [the Israeli soldiers] prevented medical assistance for the mother and she remained bleeding to death.”

Majd was a mother of a nine-month old baby girl, who is now orphaned and will never see her again.

In this accident, two Israelis were lightly wounded.

Video of the Week New Clashes Erupt Between Israeli Security Forces, Muslim Worshippers

Temple Mount temporarily closed to Jewish visitors after clashes with police




The Temple Mount was temporarily closed to Jewish visitors on Wednesday at the order of Jerusalem District Commander Yoram Halevy after Jews broke visitation rules at the holy site, police said. The Jewish visitors were expelled from the compound for bringing sacred books to the Mount and trying to pray there. After one of the individuals was cautioned, another took out a holy book, and the group was expelled. Meanwhile, renewed clashes erupted between protesters and Israeli security forces near the Lion's Gate in the Old City, where police used stun grenades against the demonstrators. A regular dynamic has developed involving clashes between Palestinians and Israel Police over the past several days near the Lion's Gate. Dozens of Palestinians are present at the site on a regular basis, urging devotion to the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount and condemning Israel. During Muslim prayer times, particularly the midday and nighttime prayers, hundreds and sometimes even thousands have been gathering there.

There have been outbreaks of violence during these periods, including stone-throwing or physical confrontations with the police. In most of these incidents, the police have been using stun grenades and sponge-tipped bullets to disperse the crowds. In a number of cases, journalists in the area have also suffered violence at the hands of the police. On Tuesday, Hassan Shaalan, a reporter for the Ynet news website, was struck by a policeman even after he identified himself as a member of the press. A group of Jerusalem-based journalists released a statement of condemnation over the incident and called on the police to permit reporters to do their jobs. The Jerusalem Police responded: "This involved an incident that took place in the course of violent disturbances of the peace that occurred in Jerusalem while the police were acting to remove the demonstrators from the street after some of them refused to vacate. The forces working on the scene are under constant threat to their lives. http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/1.802141
