A 48-year-old Palestinian mother was martyred and her husband was injured late Friday night after Israeli settlers attacked her car on a northern West Bank road.
According to Palestinian medical and security sources, Aisha Muhammad Rabi, from the town of Bidya in the north of the West Bank, was hit in the head by a stone thrown at the car she was driving on a road south of Nablus. Her husband was moderately injured.
The woman was rushed to hospital in Nablus where she was pronounced dead.
Jewish settlers have been throwing rocks at Palestinian cars driving on the road in the north of the West Bank for the last few days while the Israeli army, which has intensified its presence in the area since the latest attacks on Israelis, did not attempt to stop them.
Meanwhile, Seven Palestinians were killed and 252 others were injured by live bullets or sustained suffocation from teargas inhalation on Friday as Israeli forces continued to attack the ongoing Great March of Return protests at Gaza-Israel border, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health.
