Palestinians held a peaceful protest in Abu Dis town, on Friday, demanding the Israeli occupation authorities hand over the body of Palestinian Dr. Mai Afaneh, 29, who was slain by the army on June 16, 2021, the Palestinian WAFA News Agency reported.

The body of Afaneh, from Abu Dis town, southeast of occupied Jerusalem, has been withheld by the army since she was shot and killed near Hizma town on June 16, 2021.

Israeli soldiers opened fire at Afaneh, a mother of an eight year old daughter, when she accidentally drove her vehicle down the wrong road, at the entrance to Hizma town, northeast of occupied Jerusalem.

The army claimed that the slain woman “attempted to ram her car into a number of Israeli soldiers before exiting the vehicle with a knife” the Anadolu Agency reported.
