Israeli occupation forces shot, wounded on Monday afternoon Palestinian girl at Qalandia Checkpoint between West Bank and Jerusalem.
Palestinian eyewitnesses said that the Palestinian girl wanted to cross the checkpoint the same as other people, but she was “suddenly shot” and wounded.
According to the eyewitnesses, the girl was evacuated from the scene by Israeli paramedics “apparently” alive, but they could not confirm this, noting that “she could be dead.”
Israeli TV Channel 7 claimed that the Palestinian girl approached the checkpoint carrying a “suspicious bag” in her hand.
The TV claimed that the Israeli soldiers had shouted at her, asking her to stop walking, but “she continued walking before she was neutralised.”
Another Israel TV Channel said that the girl is 16 years old, without giving more details about her.
Israeli police Spokeswoman Luba al-Samri claimed that the Palestinian girl “carried an object” in her hands and the Israeli guards called for her to strop. “But she ignored the police orders and therefore she was neutralised,” Al-Samri claimed.
