Israeli forces shot a Palestinian woman at Qalandiya checkpoint, in the occupied West Bank on Wednesday, Israeli police said. Palestinian officials said she died of her injury, reports Reuters.

The West Bank, among territories where Palestinians seek statehood, has seen simmering street violence since US-sponsored peace talks with Israel broke down in 2014.

Video circulated on social media showed men with rifles confronting a woman. A shot is heard and she collapses.

The Palestinian health ministry said a woman shot at Qalandiya had died. Palestinian officials did not immediately provide further details on her.
