Lawyer: Palestinian woman shot during alleged car ramming attack remains in 'worrying' condition

Sept. 17, 2016 11:45 A.M. (Updated: Sept. 30, 2016 12:31 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A lawyer for the Palestinian Committee of Prisoners’ Affairs Saturday reported that 18-year-old Raghad Khadour, who was shot with her fiance after an alleged car ramming attack on Friday near the illegal Israeli settlement of Kiryat Arba in the occupied West Bank district of Hebron, was in a “difficult” and “worrying” medical state.

Karim Ajwah said Khadour, who has remained in the ICU of Israel’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center, was shot with live fire in the abdomen and has been connected to a respirator.

Ajwah noted that Khadour had an operation on Saturday, adding that her condition remained difficult, but seemed to be stabilizing.

Raghad Khaddour was the sister of Majd Khaddour, who was killed by Israeli forces at the same junction in June after attempting a car ramming attack.

Israeli forces shot and killed Raghad’s fiance 18-year-old Fares Moussa Muhammad Khaddour during the alleged attack on Friday, while Raghad was critically wounded. Three Israeli civilians were also wounded in the incident -- it remained unknown the severity of their injuries.

Raghad’s fiance was one of five to have been killed by Israeli forces since Thursday evening. He was shot dead by Israeli forces some 45 minutes after a Jordanian citizen was shot and killed by Israeli forces after allegedly carrying out a stabbing attack outside Damascus Gate in occupied East Jerusalem.

Less than two hours after Israeli forces shot dead Moussa Fares Khadour, 15-year-old Muhammad Thalji Kayid Thalji al-Rajabi was also shot and killed in the Tel Rumeida area of Hebron’s Old City after reportedly stabbing and lightly injuring an Israeli soldier.

On Saturday morning, Israeli forces also shot dead 25-year-old Hatim Abd al-Hafeeth Shaludi in the Tel Rumeida neighborhood of Hebron after allegedly carrying out a stabbing attack.

Meanwhile, Muhammad Ahmad Abd al-Fattah al-Sarrahin, 30, was killed on Thursday after succumbing to gunshot wounds sustained earlier in the day when Israeli forces raided the village of Beit Ula in the district of Hebron and opened live fire on al-Sarrahin as soldiers reportedly struggled to detain him.

According to Ma'an documentation, at least 227 Palestinians have been killed by Israelis and some 32 Israelis have been killed by Palestinians since a wave of unrest first swept across the occupied Palestinian territory and Israel in October.

The recent incidents marked the highest concentration of Palestinian deaths in recent months since June when three Palestinians were killed in less than 48 hours after allegedly carrying out attacks which killed two Israelis -- one in Hebron's Old city, another in Kiryat Arba, and one in Israel -- while a fourth died during clashes.

Israel has come under repeated criticism for failing to carry out due process in response to alleged and actual attacks, particularly in regard to the apparent extrajudicial executions of Palestinians who no longer posed a threat when they were killed.
