Razan al-Najjar, a 21 years old Palestinian female volunteer nurse has been shot dead by Israeli sniper near the Gaza border fence n Friday during the protests and violence, according to the Palestinian health ministry. According to health ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra, Najjar was a volunteer with the ministry, wearing the white uniform of a medic when she was shot in the chest.
To reminding you, “Targeting civilians, medical personnel in conflict areas is war crime!” Razan al-Najjar was assassinated by a Israel sniper while she was attending wounded protesters. Investigation is urged by the International Criminal Court!
We also looked her interviews. In one of the interviews, Razan says:
People ask my father what I’m doing here, and getting a salary. He tells them, ‘I’m proud of my daughter, she provides care to the children of our country.’ And because in our society, women are often judged, but society has to accept us . If people don’t want to accept us by choice, they will be forced to accept us. Because we have more strength than any man. The strength that I showed as a first-responder on the first day of the protests — I dare you to find it in anyone else.
Thousands of Palestinians attended the funeral on Saturday. Ambulances and medical crews attended the funeral, with her father holding the white blood-stained medics’ jacket she wore when she was shot, as mourners called for revenge.
Razan al-Najjar worked as a paramedic and has been photographed on numerous occasions helping Palestinians injured by Israeli fire during protests.
