DAMASCUS, SYRIA (12:09 P.M)- Hours ago, Israeli soldiers gunned down a 16 year old Palestinian girl in East Jerusalem.
Sixteen year old, Samah Mubarak, was shot dead by Israeli soldiers, at the al-Za’im military checkpoint, in East Jerusalem.
According to eyewitnesses, Israeli soldiers blocked ambulances from attending to the wounded 16 year old, watching her bleed to death on the concrete.
Contradictory Israeli justifications have emerged, some Hebrew media reporting that the 16 year old was preparing to attack, others claiming that she began a failed attempted attack. The soldiers however attempted to transport a soldier from the scene, covered, claiming initially that the soldier had been stabbed.
Israeli media have described the schoolgirl as a terrorist. Using a photo of a clean fruit-knife as evidence.
