Palestinian medical sources have reported that an elderly woman died of a heart attack, after dozens of soldiers invaded her home and ransacked it, in the al-’Arroub refugee camp. Several injuries and arrests have been reported during ongoing invasions in Hebron.
The sources said Fatima Ismael Roshdi, 70 years of age, suffered a heart attack after dozens of soldiers stormed her home, in the al-‘Arroub refugee camp, north of Hebron, and ransacked it, causing excessive property damage.
She was moved to a local hospital in a critical condition, and died later on. Troops kidnapped five residents during their attack targeting Al ‘Arroub refugee camp.
Four More Palestinians Kidnapped In West Bank. Israeli soldiers invaded Husan town, west of the West Bank city of Bethlehem, and kidnapped one Palestinian. Two Palestinians were kidnapped in Awarta, near Nablus, and one in Azzoun, near Qalqilia.
