72-Year-Old Woman Shot Dead by Israeli Soldiers in West Bank


The Israeli military claims an old Palestinian woman was shot dead after she attempted to run over soldiers. The latest wave of violence in the Holy Land has already claimed dozens of lives.

The tragic incident took place in Halhul on the West Bank. Relatives of the 72-year-old woman, who lost her husband in the 1988 Intifada, say she had no reason to try to hit Israelis with her car and she was just driving by. Israel Defense Forces’ spokesperson countered that the Palestinian woman slowed her car down near a checkpoint and then speeded up, aiming at a group of soldiers. They opened fire at the car in response, the IDF says.  

Halhul saw a similar car ramming attack this Wednesday, when an Israeli police officer shot dead a driver after another officer was injured.


On Friday, two Jewish men, aged 16 and 19, were shot in Hebron at the holy site of Cave of the Patriarchs and another one, an IDF soldier, also shot nearby in a separate drive-by attack. This led to a blockade of Hebron on Saturday by Israeli forces while they searched for the assailants.

Also on Friday, a 23-year-old Palestinian man was reportedly shot and killed and nine others wounded by Israeli forces during clashes in Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip. In Northern Gaza, a Palestinian teenager was wounded in clashes. In Bethlehem, a Christian Palestinian was severely wounded by IDF soldiers during a violent protest.

In the recent tide of violence and protests, which began one month ago, 71 Palestinians have been killed, mainly during violent protests, along with 11 Israelis, mostly stabbings victims.

Earlier, Reuters reported that a clothing shop dubbed “Hitler 2” in Gaza displayed mannequins holding knifes and dressed in T-shirts with “Stab!” written across the chest, while an Israeli news website, popular among religious Jews, hosted a video game “in which children were urged to ‘neutralize’ attackers dressed as Arabs.”

  1. Ah yes, the brave army of Jewish momma’s-boys that’s never killed anyone besides women and children. Whenever they have real fighting to do they hide somewhere and send in American troops.

    These pathetic excuses for “men” need to be put against a wall and shot to pieces.

  2. Ho-Hum, another day, more Palestinians shot Israelis. They have successfully desensitized most of the world to it. You won’t hear a peep about it in our MSM.

    The Palestinians have knives, the Israelis have our best weapons of war to counter. Crock of Shit? Yes, it is. And what a sob story those damned Zionists have to cloak their debauchery, “Yes, our shit don’t stink! We be “God’s Chosen.”

  3. Watching “We Were Solders”, seeing the pain and loss of the “grunts” at the expense of the partying politicians makes me want to personally strangle more than a few of those responsible for this shit. Same gig today, only it’s “The Never Ending War on Terror!” How ingenious! Invent an enemy that has no country, base, and is more philosophy and religion than anything else, so the war goes on with what objective? At this point, the only “objective” they have is to continue raping and pillaging, at taxpayer expense, for their buddies to steal wealth and resources. Can we call them on it soon? I say we just line ’em up.
