A Palestinian woman was shot dead by Israeli forces in the southern Gaza Strip late Friday, according to witnesses and medics.


Witnesses said that 57-year-old Aminah Atiyeh Qudeih was shot and killed by Israeli forces, east of Khan Younis, when she approached the separation barrier between Israel and the Gaza Strip, Ma'an News Agency reports.

Ambulances were not allowed access to the area at the time and, when they reached the area on Saturday morning, Qudeih was found dead, witnesses said.

The woman's relatives told AP she was mentally ill, and assumed she wandered toward the border by mistake.
