West Bank: Palestinian woman shot dead by Israeli police at checkpoint

Israeli police shot dead a woman at a West Bank checkpoint, claiming she approached them with a knife.

According to the Palestinian Wafa news agency, eyewitnesses reported that the occupation shot and wounded the woman and left her lying on the ground before closing the barrier completely and preventing vehicles and pedestrians from passing, which caused a traffic hold up.

Israeli police said the woman, aged 28, kept walking towards the guards at the Qalandia crossing, between Ramallah and Jerusalem, despite repeated warnings to stop.

The killing comes a day after a Palestinian teenager was shot dead by the Israeli army on Friday during a protest in the occupied West Bank.

According to Palestinian news agency Wafa, 15-year-old Mohammad Said Hamayel died after Israeli forces opened fire on "a public protest against Israel's construction of a colonial settlement outpost" in Beita, south of the West Bank city of Nablus.
