A Palestinian woman who was carrying a toy gun has been injured after being shot by Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers near a Nablus-area checkpoint.
The Israeli soldiers claimed that they shot the woman at the Bekaot checkpoint on Friday morning because she ignored their request to stop.
According to the soldiers, they discovered that she was carrying a toy gun after shooting her.
The Palestinian woman was rushed to hospital for treatment as she sustained wounds to her legs.
The IDF also said that it had no responsibility in the death of the 17-year-old Palestinian girl in the Gaza Strip a day earlier.
On Thursday, the Palestinian teenager Hyam Ayash lost her life and four others were injured after an Israeli tank fired a mortar toward a target near the al-Bureij refugee camp at a central area in the impoverished strip.
