Ramallah: Hanin Doyat (20), a Palestinian woman, on her way to Wadi Al Jouz was shot near Al-Haram Al-Sharif in occupied East Jerusalem after an Israeli colonist harassed her.
Eyewitnesses reported that the Jewish colonist attempted to pull off her headscarf. She retaliated and hit the attacker with her handbag and was then shot at point-blank range. It was not clear whether she was shot by the colonist or by Israeli police.
Govt. Israel claims that the woman had a knife and stabbed the colonist but the eyewitnesses denied this claim.
Eyewitnesses told that the bleeding Palestinian woman was lying on the ground and she was stripped naked. Angry passerby Palestinians clashed with Israeli occupation forces.
The woman was rushed to an Israeli hospital. Her condition is not known. Her identity has also not been disclosed.
Eyewitnesses told that it was an attempt to judaise the holy city, erasing its Palestinian and Muslim character completely.
