The Palestinian Ministry of Health confirms the martyrdom of Eman Ziyad Odeh (26 years old) as a result of a bullet wound to the chest fired by Israeli occupation forces.
Israeli occupation forces shot and killed on Thursday a Palestinian woman in Huwara, south of Nablus, following an alleged stabbing operation.
The Palestinian Ministry of Health reported that Eman Ziyad Odeh (26 years old) was killed as a result of a bullet wound to the chest fired by Israeli occupation forces.
The Palestinian Red Crescent reported that Israeli occupation forces opened fire at Odeh near the Einabus roundabout and prevented medical crews from approaching her, before eventually allowing them to transfer her to the Rafidia hospital in Nablus after sustaining a critical injury.

Israeli occupation forces confirmed that one of its soldiers was wounded in the alleged operation.
With Odeh's death, the number of Palestinians killed today at the hands of Israeli occupation forces has risen to four.
The number of Palestinians who have been killed by occupation forces and illegal Israeli settlers since the beginning of 2023 has risen to 108, including 20 children and two women.
Earlier, the Palestinian Ministry of Health confirmed that three Palestinians were killed by Israeli occupation gunfire and several others were injured during the storming of the Old Town of Nablus in the occupied West Bank.
According to the Ministry, the faces of two martyrs were completely disfigured due to the seriousness of their injury sustained from the extensive gunfire, which makes their identities hard to identify.
Local media said a large number of Israeli occupation forces raided the Al-Yasmina neighborhood this morning and besieged a Palestinian house.
Following the raid, confrontations erupted between Palestinian Resistance fighters and Israeli occupation forces, as smoke plums rose from the besieged house after occupation forces used shoulder-fired guided missiles to target the house, amid loud explosions heard.
The media said an Israeli occupation special forces unit infiltrated the Old City dressed in civilian clothes before additional reinforcements were sent.
The spokesperson for the Palestinian Red Crescent, Ahmed Jibril, reported earlier several injuries, some critical, while occupation soldiers completely closed the area, preventing medical crews from approaching the area to treat the injured.
The mosques in Nablus called on Palestinians to take to the streets and confront the invading Israeli occupation forces.
A spokesperson for the Israeli military said the occupation forces carried out a military activity inside the Old City of Nablus to arrest one Palestinian.
The Israeli Kan channel said the "Yamam Special Forces" assassinated two Palestinians in Nablus who had allegedly carried out the Jordan Valley operation on April 7, in which three illegal settlers were killed. The occupation forces also killed a third Palestinian who was accompanying the two martyrs.
