Israeli forces raided al-Jaberiyyat neighborhood, where they interrogated and threatened to re-arrest a former prisoner after breaking into his house. The raid sparked confrontations during which Israeli troops opened fire towards local teens who attempted to block their passage.
According to her friend, Samudi was trying to close the window in order to prevent tear gas from entering her home.
Director of the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) Mahmoud al-Sa‘di confirmed that a Samoudi was hit in the chest with a bullet fired by Israeli forces while in her house during the raid.
Al-Sa‘di added that the forces directly opened fire at the ambulance which arrived at the scene.
