Palestinian girl dies from Israeli gunshot wound

A 15-year-old Palestinian girl who was shot and critically injured by Israeli forces yesterday, succumbed to her wounds this morning, according to the hospital where she was being treated.

The teen, identified as Nouf Iqab Abdel-Jabbar Infeiat from the Jenin-area village of Yabed, was shot near the entrance of the illegal Movo Dotansettlement in the Jenin district of the northern occupied West Bank.

The Hillel Yaffe medical centre in the Israeli city of Hadera released a statement today saying the girl had succumbed to her wounds.

Footage shared by social media users yesterday showed Israeli settlers insulting the young Palestinian as she lay wounded on the ground, calling her a “bitch” and telling her she deserved to die.

Infiaat is the 27th Palestinian to have been killed by Israelis since the beginning of 2017.
