(Ramallah- AlummahWorld-Dhu-AlHijjah 9, 1436, September 23, 2015) Israeli soldiers shot and injured a Palestinian woman at a checkpoint in Hebron on Tuesday morning.

According to Ma`an news agency, witnesses identified the woman as 18-year-old Hadeel al-Hashlamon. She was reportedly taken to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem in critical condition.

The Israeli army spokeswoman said that the attack had been "thwarted." But eye witness confirmed that he woman was unarmed. But local witness and pictures circulated on social media clearly show that two Israeli soldiers gun pointing Palestinian women while victim is just standing infront of them.

A local activist group Youth Against Settlements later released what it said were photos of the incident, appearing to show Israeli soldiers aiming their weapons at the woman, as first she faced them and afterward turned away from them.

Another photo appeared to show the woman slumped on the street, after she was shot and wounded.

Video footage from Palestinian news agency PalMedia appeared to show the woman left bleeding on the pavement, reportedly for up to 30 minutes before she received treatment.

The footage also shows the woman being dragged out of camera frame, while soldiers and heavily armed Israeli settlers look on.

Meanwhile, the Palestinian Authority demanded that the UN form a committee to investigate the shooting of 18-year-old Hadel al-Hashlamon by Israeli forces in Hebron in the occupied West Bank earlier in the day.

Al-Hashlamon's death came only hours after another Palestinian, 21-year-old Diyaa Abdul-Halim Talahmah, was also killed during clashes with Israeli forces Monday night, also with contradictory reports of how he died.

Tensions have soared across the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem in recent days following fierce clashes at the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in Jerusalem's Old City last week.

Israeli soldiers are seeems to be allowed to shot and kill any Palestinian even without any reason or provocation.
