Zionist settlers killed a Palestinian woman in al-Quds (Jerusalem) on Wednesday after trying to remove her Hijab.
Palestinian sources said that when two terrorist settlers tried to strip the woman of her Hijab, she defended herself by trying to stab him. Immediately, one of the settlers shot the woman from a close range.
The woman was heading to al-Aqsa Mosque, before being attacked by the settlers, eye witnesses said.
However, Israeli media didn’t mention that the settlers attacked the woman first.
According to Israeli Channel 10 news, the incident took place near the Lions Gate in the Old City, and the Israeli man sustained light injuries.
Tensions had been steadily mounting in al-Quds and across the West Bank in recent weeks due to Israeli restrictions on Palestinians seeking to enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound.
Violent confrontations took place in the West Bank over the weekend in which at least 230 Palestinians were wounded with around 90 of them with live ammunition.
