On Thursday, Israeli soldiers killed a young Palestinian woman near Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank, after the army claimed she attacked soldiers, mildly wounding one.

Media sources said the soldiers shot Eman Ziad Ahmad Odah, 26, with a live round in the chest, near Einabus junction in the center of Huwwara town, south of Nablus.

After shooting the woman, the army closed the area and refused to allow Palestinian medics to approach her, and later, Palestinian Red Crescent medics (PRCS) were able to reach her and perform the urgently needed medical attention before rushing her to Rafidia hospital in Nablus where she was officially pronounced dead.

The Israeli army claimed the woman attacked a soldier with a knife, but the soldier pushed her away and shot her, and added that another security officer also opened fire at the woman. The wounded soldier suffered a mild injury and was moved to an Israeli hospital.

In related news, the soldiers shot a young Palestinian man in the leg during protests near Al-Khader town, south of Bethlehem, in the occupied West Bank.

The army claimed that the young man attacked soldiers who stopped and searched Palestinian vehicles.

Her death brings the number of slain Palestinians killed by Israeli soldiers and paramilitary colonizers since the beginning of this year to 107, including 20 children and two women.

On Thursday morning, Israeli soldiers killed three young Palestinian men and injured at least four after the undercover force infiltrated the Old City of Nablus, and surrounded a home before dozens of military vehicles invaded the area.

In a statement, the Palestinian Health Ministry identified the slain Palestinians as Moath Masri, 35, Hasan Qatanani, 35, and Ibrahim Jabr, 45.

A 20-year-old Israeli was lightly wounded in a suspected stabbing attack in the West Bank town of Hawara near Nablus on Thursday, the Israeli army said. Palestinian emergency services reported that the 26-year-old female assailant was shot, and died shortly after being evacuated to hospital. She was identified as Iman Ziad Odeh.

Earlier Thursday, three Palestinians were killed from Israeli army fire and four were wounded in the West Bank city of Nablus, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.

The Israeli army says that two of them were responsible for last month's shooting attack in the northern West Bank in which three members of the Dee family were killed. It identified the two as Moath Masri and Hasan Qatanani. The third casualty, Ibrahim Hura, aided Masri and Qatanani in escaping the scene of the shooting attack.

In a statement, Hamas confirmed that the three men were among the ranks of the organization.

In February, hundreds of Jewish settlers descended on the northern West Bank town of Hawara, killing 37-year-old Sameh Aqtash and wounding 98 other Palestinians, after two Israelis were gunned down by a Palestinian affiliated with the Nablus-based Lion’s Den militant group. The settlers entered Hawara and began throwing rocks at houses and setting trees and cars in the village on fire. 36 houses have been burned along with 15 cars and 9 families have been evacuated.
