One Palestinian was killed and 101 were injured by Israeli violence in the occupied Palestinian territories, during the period from April 8 to 14, a UN report said.
According to the report, issued by the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the Israeli occupation displaceed 40 Palestinians, half of them women and children, and demolished 15 houses.
A woman, age 46, was killed by a tear gas canister dropped near her home in the West Bank refugee camp of Ayda, near Bethlehem. She was identified as Noha Qatamesh.
Qatamesh suffered from health issues, and the tear gas inhalation resulted in her death.
She died of gas inhalation after the soldiers fired numerous gas bombs at the protesters, and three of the canisters directly hit her home, located in the Rowwad area, in the center of Aida refugee camp. Local activist Ibrahim Musallam said that Noha was suffering from respiratory issues, and was admitted to the hospital one day prior to her death after inhaling gas fired by the soldiers.
She was released from the hospital later that day. But the following day, when the Israeli army invaded again and fired dozens of gas bombs and live rounds directly into her neighborhood and home, she again inhaled gas and was rushed to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
The ambulance had a difficult time getting to Noha, and getting her to the hospital, according to local sources, because of the Israeli military presence in the camp and the fog of tear gas that covered the neighborhood.
Along with the death of Qatamesh, 42, including 20 children, were injured during protests against the Annexation Wall.
As for the new forced displacements, the UN report said the demolition of Palestinian homes in Hebron towns and in Jerusalem continues, pointing to 40 Palestinian householders having lost their homes and 34 others affected by the measure.
The office said that the Israeli aggressions as of 2014 have left at least 21 Palestinians killed and 725 wounded in Gaza and the West Bank.
Just this morning, the Israeli military kidnapped, at dawn, six Palestinians from occupied East Jerusalem.
According to the Wadi Helwa Information Center, the abducted people were identified as Fares Abu Ghannam, Amer Albzlamit, Mohammed Alju’beh, Ahmed Salah, Akram Alsharaf, and Ihab Alzoughair.
The center pointed out that they were transferred to the so-called the Russian Compound (Moscobiya) interrogation center in Jerusalem, to be tried later at the occupation’s Magistrate Court.
Israeli forces routinely carry out arrest raids in the West Bank. Around 40 percent of Palestinian men living in the occupied territories have been detained by Israel at some point in their lives.
