Israeli forces opened fire at Afaneh, who was a doctor, and the mother of an eight-year old girl, when she drove her vehicle down a road that was under construction, at the entrance to Hizma town. Local sources reported that Afaneh apparently had accidentally driven her vehicle down the wrong road, and was trying to turn around when she was shot.

The army claimed that the slain woman attempted to ram her car into a number of Israeli soldiers before exiting the vehicle with a knife” the Anadolu Agency reported.

But the Israeli authorities offered no evidence to back their claim. The claim also goes against the forensic evidence showing that Mai was in her car when she was shot and killed.

On Friday, July 16th, Palestinians held a peaceful protest in Abu Dis town, on the one month anniversary of Mai’s killing, demanding the Israeli occupation authorities hand over her body to her family.

Her body had been withheld by the army since she was shot and killed near Hizma town on June 16, 2021.

June 12, 2021: Ibtisam Khaled Ka’abna, 28, was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers at the Qalandia Terminal, north of occupied Jerusalem, after she allegedly attempted to attack them.

Her brother, Khaled Mohammad Ka’abna, stated that the soldiers shot his sister at the terminal, and left her bleeding on the ground without any medical attention until she succumbed to her wounds.

Khaled added that his slain sister is a married mother of one child.

Israeli sources claimed that the woman “was yielding a knife”, while the “Times of Israel” alleged she “ran towards the soldiers while brandishing a knife.” No soldiers were hurt in the alleged attack.

Videos from the scene show the woman far away from any soldier when she was shot. Palestinian analysts point out that even if she had been holding a knife (which may or may not have been the case), the soldiers had the option to injure her at least instead of delivering fatal shots and leaving her without medical treatment until she bled to death.
