Palestinian Woman Killed by Israeli Settlers in Stone Attack on Car

JERUSALEM – A 48-year-old Palestinian mother of eight was buried on Saturday after being killed by Israeli settlers who attacked her vehicle with stones in the northern occupied West Bank a day earlier.

Aisha Rabi was killed while driving with her husband south of the city of Nablus on Friday, Israeli police confirmed Saturday, with the official Palestinian news agency WAFA giving the cause of death as a blow to the head by a stone.

Rabi’s relatives were seen weeping during her funeral in the village of Bidya as her body, wrapped in a Palestinian flag, was carried in a funeral procession attended by several hundred mourners.

A spokesperson for the Palestinian Authority, Yousef al-Mahmoud, called Rabi’s killing a “terror attack” in a statement cited by WAFA.

This is the third violent incident this week in the occupied West Bank, as two Israelis were wounded Thursday in a knife attack at the entrance of a Israeli military base in the Nablus area, while on Sunday two other Israelis were killed by a Palestinian coworker in a settlement industrial zone in the northern West Bank.

Some settlers in the West Bank carry out so-called “price tag” revenge attacks as a way to exact retribution for perceived injustices against what they believe is their right to live on occupied Palestinian land.

Palestinians in the West Bank are subject to military law, while civilian law is applied to Israeli settlers living in the same territory.
