An elderly woman, Zakia al-‘Amory, from Balata refugee camp in the northern West Bank city of Nablus, died on Thursday morning when the Israeli army attacked her home in order to kidnap her son.
Eyewitnesses reported that troops invaded the home and searched for Al-‘Amory’s son, leaving her terrified and made her suffer a heart attack. Troops helped her for 15 minutes and called for an ambulance to take her to hospital, but it was too late and she was dead on arrival.
Sources reported that Israeli forces invaded the camp early on Thursday morning searching for wanted Palestinians and left the area with three kidnapped Palestinians and killing the elderly woman.
