On the 21st, September, 2015, at the Jordanian West Bank city of Hebron, an 18 year old Palestinian female university student approached a check-point (wearing Islamic dress) – and according to (unverified) Israeli reports – attempted (but failed) to assassinate the Israeli soldiers. This led to the young woman standing quietly whilst the Israeli soldiers trained their weapons upon her. Seconds after the first two photograph were taken, two Israeli soldiers opened fire – cutting the young woman to the ground. Her body was taken to a nearby hospital where it was confirmed that she had been killed by Israeli gun-fire – no weapons were found either on or near her body – and there was no evidence of any Israeli soldiers being injured.
This brave, young woman was killed by the Israeli Defence Force (IDF) as part of the continuous Israeli occupation of the city of Hebron. The situation is tense due to the mix of Jews and Palestinians being made to live in close but unequal proximity. Hebron (the largest city in the West Bank) is in fact an apartheid area with one section controlled by the Palestinian Authority, and the other directly administered by Israel. The body of this young was carried through the streets of Hebron by her family and friends, whilst other people showed their sorrow for her death, and respect for her sacrifice.
