Our picture of the day from Wednesday March 29th 2017 shows members of the self-declared ‘Most Moral Army In The World” watching a wounded 49-year-old woman they shot to bleed to death.
Medical crews were not allowed to reach Siham al-Nimr / Nimer and she died of her wounds, six months and twenty-four days after Israeli occupation forces killed her 27-year-old son Mustafa in the Shuafat refugee camp in East Jerusalem.
Siham was shot at the Damascus Gate of East Jerusalem’s Old City during a trip to the al-Aqsa mosque. Israel’s occupation forces kidnapped her daughter, who witnessed her mother’s killing, and also her husband.
Israeli occupation made a claim that she would have ‘pulled scissors’ and would have been shot to death as a result; on the photographs and videos from the scene the only thing seen near her body is a plastic bottle.
