Majeda Obeid, 61, was among the nine people killed during an IDF raid in Jenin earlier today, her family says.

Obeid lived some meters from the house holding members of a Palestinian Islamic Jihad cell targeted by the Israeli forces. Most of those killed were members of the terrorist group.

Obeid’s daughter, Kefiyat Obeid, tells AFP that her mother was shot as she peered out her window at the clashes.

“After she finished her prayers, she stopped for a moment to look and, as she stood up, she was hit in the neck by a bullet and she fell against the wall and then to the floor,” the 26-year-old tells AFP, as bloodstains soaked into the rug of their home.
