Israeli soldiers shoot female Palestinian student in the head

Israeli soldiers have fired live bullets killing a female Palestinian student and injuring two others at the entrance of Al-Aroub Agriculture College in a refugee camp in the West Bank city of Hebron.

Medical sources said that the bullets hit student Luban Hanash, 22, in the head from a very close distance. One of the other casualties, Su'ad Je'ara, 35, sustained moderate injuries according to medical sources in Al-Ahli hospital in Hebron.

Israeli forces near to the incident prevented bystanders and paramedics from helping the casualties who were left bleeding for ten minutes.

Witnesses from the area said that two Israeli soldiers took over a civilian car near to the college, aimed their guns towards the students and began shooting without any prior clashes.

The Israeli commander of the northern district told Israel's Channel 10 TV that he did not know the particulars of the incident as investigations are still underway.
