Israeli soldiers on Saturday beat and detained a Palestinian elderly woman in the Israeli-army controlled part of the southern West Bank city of Hebron (Al-Khalil), the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

Local sources told WAFA that Israeli soldiers, stationed near the Ibrahimi Mosque, violently beat the woman – identified as 65-years-old from the Hebron-district town of Idna – causing her to faint. They also detained her, preventing a local ambulance from reaching her to provide her with medical assistance.

Israeli authorities claimed the woman attempted a stabbing attack, but this version was not verified by Palestinian sources.
