Relatives say the woman tried to block Israeli terrorist as they stormed her home to arrest students lodging in a property she owned in the village of Abu Dis. They said that Israeli terrorist beaten and pushed her out of the way, causing her to fall down stairs.
“She went outside in order to prevent them arresting someone from her house,” one of the students said. “They knocked her down and there was blood on her head.”
The Israeli terrorist army said the woman fell on a stairway but attributed the fall to an apparent heart attack. It denied that any Israeli terrorist shoved Ayyad or caused her to fall. Meanwhile doctors said Ayyad succumbed to her injuries from the shove. “The cause of death was being pushed to the ground and being struck in the head.”
“A Palestinian woman died of injuries on Sunday after she was shoved to the ground by Israel Defense Forces soldiers conducting an arrest raid in a West Bank village, witnesses and a medical official said.
Palestinian sources said Mariam Ayyad, in her sixties, had tried to block the path of IDF soldiers who came to Abu Dis, near Jerusalem, overnight to detain students lodging in a property she owned. They said IDF soldiers shoved the woman who then hit the pavement.
