Palestinian woman killed as Israeli settlers attack vehicle in Nablus

SALFIT (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian woman was killed while her husband was injured after Israeli settlers attacked their vehicle near the Zaatara checkpoint in southern Nablus in the northern occupied West Bank, late Friday night.

Palestinian security sources identified the woman as Aisha Muhammad Talal al-Rabi, 47, pointing out that the couple is from the Bidya village near Salfit in the northern West Bank.

Sources added that Israeli settlers attacked the couple's vehicle with rocks, hitting Aisha with a rock in the head, which caused her death, and leaving her husband injured.

The woman was transferred to a nearby hospital in Nablus, where she was then pronounced dead.

Aisha is a mother of eight, one of her daughters' wedding was scheduled to take place in two weeks.

Between 500,000 and 600,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law.

The Palestinian government has no jurisdiction over Israelis in the West Bank, and acts carried out by Israeli settlers often occur in the presence of Israeli military forces who rarely act to protect Palestinian residents.
