Local sources told WAFA that Israeli soldiers, stationed near the Ibrahimi Mosque, violently beat the woman – identified as 65-years-old from the Hebron-district town of Idna – causing her to faint. They also detained her, preventing a local ambulance from reaching her to provide her with medical assistance.
Israeli authorities claimed the woman attempted a stabbing attack, but this version was not verified by Palestinian sources.
