Israeli Soldier Shot an Old Woman
In the first incident, an Israeli soldier shot a Palestinian woman. The military said that the woman was trying to carry out a stabbing attack. Henceforth, the officer had to shoot him anyhow. She was approximately 60 years old and died of her wounds. No further information regarding the lady has yet been revealed. It is also unknown whom she was trying to stab.
Gunmen Shot Two Israeli People
The second incident took place later in the day. Palestinian gunmen opened fire at a crowded intersection. In this incident, two Israeli people were heavily wounded and injured. Officials and soldiers are currently investigating the incident looking for the gunmen. According to the sources, the gunmen fired from a car near a Jewish settlement. However, they escaped from the military. Officers are thoroughly searching for them.
A lot of chaos and tension has been spread amongst the Israel police and the Palestinians. There is a tension-prone environment in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem. Palestinians and Israeli police are constantly clashing near Jerusalem’s old city for several days. Moreover, It is the holy month of Ramadan as well. The Israeli army said that they will send more troops to the West Bank in order to ensure safety. However, they will first examine the whole situation and then derive any conclusion.
