78-year-old woman dies of heart attack during Israeli raid

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- An elderly Palestinian woman died early Thursday after suffering a heart attack during a raid by Israeli soldiers in el-Arrub refugee camp north of Hebron.

Fatima Ismail Issa Rushdi, 78, was evacuated to al-Ahli Hospital in Hebron after she suffered a heart attack.

"Fatima arrived at the emergency department suffering from a sudden heart and lung failure. Doctors tried to resuscitate her twice but there was no response and she was pronounced dead," Dr. Ashraf Zghayyar told Ma'an.

The Israeli raid on the camp started after midnight on Wednesday following a power cut. Soldiers ransacked several homes and handed summons orders to several young men, demanding that they go to an Israeli military center for interrogation.

Youths in the camp clashed with Israeli forces during the raids, with soldiers firing tear gas and rubber-coated bullets, injuring 9 youths.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said Israeli soldiers used riot dispersal means to distance a crowd after Palestinians hurled rocks at an Israeli bus.

When the crowd did not retreat, Israeli soldiers used live fire, she added, with no hits identified.

Red Crescent volunteers told Ma'an that they evacuated over 20 families from their homes after Israeli soldiers fired excessive amounts of tear gas.

Israeli forces detained 13-year-old Sufyan Jaafar Abu Arqub and 14-year-old Jaafar Taha in Dura, while soldiers detained Amir al-Qasrawi in Hebron and confiscated his computer and a security camera installed outside his home.

Six Palestinians have been shot dead by Israeli forces and more than 120 have been injured during a large-scale arrest campaign across the West Bank since the disappearance of three Israeli youths near Gush Etzion on June 12.
