The Israel Defense Forces said that soldiers used tear gas in a routine manner during Friday's anti-fence protest in Bilin during which Jawaher Abu Rahma was hurt. On Saturday, Palestinian sources reported that the 36-year-old woman had died as a result of gas poisoning.
According to IDF elements, the cause of death remains unclear as an initial examination suggests that Abu Rahma was lightly injured and was released from hospital and later died in her home. The Palestinians claimed she died in a Ramallah hospital. (Hanan Greenberg)
