Israeli forces have just murdered a Palestinian teen near illegal settlement of Giv’on HaHadasha in occupied West Bank.

Eyewitnesses said that an Israeli soldier at the illegal checkpoint near the Israeli settlement asked the Palestinian girl to show her ID.

 

“When she opened her handbag to get the ID out,” the eyewitness said, “the Israeli soldier shot several bullets directly towards her.”

 

The Israeli army spokesperson claimed that the Palestinian girl attempted to pull out a knife from her bag to stab a soldier. “Therefore, the soldier neutralised her,” the spokesperson said as reported by Israeli media.

 

Until now, neither Palestinian nor Israeli official side has announced the death of the Palestinian girl. However, the eyewitness and Israeli radio’s military correspondent confirmed her death.
