A young Palestinian woman was injured on Thursday afternoon when Israeli soldiers fired at her while she was standing at the Bathan military checkpoint, east of the northern West Bank city of Nablus.
Eyewitnesses reported that soldiers opened fire at scores of Palestinian civilians who had been stranded at the checkpoint since the morning leading up to the injury of the woman.

Dr. Ghassan Hamdan, the director of the medical relief services in Nablus stated that Tahani Bani-Odah, 23, sustained critical wounds due to direct live round.

Dr. Hamdan also stated that soldiers did not allow the medical team to hospitalize the girl, instead they abducted her and took her to an unknown location.
