A Palestinian girl succumbed on Monday to the wounds she sustained after she was shot by Israeli forces last week, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.
The Palestinian Health Ministry said in a statement that 18-year-old Hanan Mahmoud Khadour, from the village of Faqqua, near Jenin, was shot in the stomach while she was on her way to school during a military raid into the city on April 9.
Khadour, who was a high school student, was critically injured and taken to the hospital in Jenin where she was declared dead late last night.
Since the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan, Israel has killed 18 Palestinians in the occupied West Bank.
