Noha Qatamesh

April 15, 2014: Noha Mohammad Qatamesh, 46, was killed by Israeli forces who fired a tear gas canister near her home in Aida refugee camp near Bethlehem during a protest.

She died of gas inhalation after the soldiers fired numerous gas bombs at the protesters, and three of the canisters directly hit her home, located in the Rowwad area, in the center of Aida refugee camp. Local activist Ibrahim Musallam said that Noha was suffering from respiratory issues, and was admitted to the hospital one day prior to her death after inhaling gas fired by the soldiers.

She was released from the hospital later that day. But the following day, when the Israeli army invaded again and fired dozens of gas bombs and live rounds directly into her neighborhood and home, she again inhaled gas and was rushed to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

The ambulance had a difficult time getting to Noha, and getting her to the hospital, according to local sources, because of the Israeli military presence in the camp and the fog of tear gas that covered the neighborhood. Source: IMEMC
