Nawf Enfei’at

June 2, 2017: Nawf Eqab Enfei’at, 16, died from serious wounds she suffered a day earlier after Israeli soldiers shot her. They claimed she attacked and stabbed one of them at a military roadblock near Mavo Dotan settlement, southwest of Jenin city, in the northern part of the West Bank.

The child was transferred by the army to the Israeli Hillel Yaffe Medical Center in Hadera, where she was receiving treatment, until she succumbed to her wounds.

Her father said the family was shocked to hear about her death, especially since her lawyer told them that the Israeli military prosecutor’s office has scheduled a court hearing for her, for Sunday, June 4th.

He added that the Israeli army did not contact the family, even to inform them about a date to transfer her corpse back to them.

The family was not allowed to visit with her after her injury, and only knew she suffered serious wounds. Nawf was from Ya’bad, west of Jenin. Source: IMEMC
