A Palestinian woman died after being shot on Friday by Israeli soldiers during a raid in the West Bank city of Jenin.

The Health Ministry confirmed that Dalia Samudi, 23, succumbed to her critical wounds after being hit by live bullets that penetrated her chest, liver and pancreas. She was taken to the hospital, where she was later pronounced dead.

Israeli forces raided al-Jaberiyyat neighborhood, where they interrogated and threatened to re-arrest a former prisoner after breaking into his house. The raid sparked confrontations during which Israeli troops opened fire towards local teens who attempted to block their passage.

According to her friend, Samudi was trying to close the window in order to prevent tear gas from entering her home.

Director of the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) Mahmoud al-Sa‘di confirmed that a Samoudi was hit in the chest with a bullet fired by Israeli forces while in her house during the raid.

Al-Sa‘di added that the forces directly opened fire at the ambulance which arrived at the scene.

Our Vision For Liberation: Engaged Palestinian Leaders & Intellectuals Speak Out


  1. Israel and zionism have been labelled as cancers destroying the world, but that is not quite true — they are cancers eating the soul of the Jewish people, a corruption of the ideals of Judaism; from self-proclaimed moral leaders of the world into narcissistic, cruel and venal war criminals. Instead of shining as a ‘light among nations’, zionism has dragged Judaim into the sewer of racism and apartheid oppression; changed it from a faith into a cult of insatiable greed.

    Pity their self-destruction.

    • I don’t agree with your statement, “Zionism has dragged Judaism into the sewer of racism and apartheid oppression”. I am Jewish and I am totally opposed to the way Israel has become an apartheid and colonialist state. Zionism and Judaism are not the same. Being Jewish, when I state my opposition to Israel and to Zionism, I cannot be accused of being anti-Semitic.
