Pictures taken of Yasmeen Tamimi, a 21-year-old Palestinian girl, lying on a street's corner severely bleeding from a gunshot wound after attempting to stab IDF soldiers in Hebron on Sunday, roused furious reactions on the Palestinian social media.

Tamimi, a Hebron resident, attempted to stab a soldier at Checkpoint 160 near the Cave of the Patriarchs in the West Bank city. Security forces shot and seriously wounded her, and she was evacuated to the Sha'are Tzedek Medical Center in Jerusalem for surgery.

The pictures of Tamimi's covered in blood quickly spread on Palestinian social networks, and inspired several Palestinians to describe her cynically as the symbol of the Palestinian Valentine's Day. They claimed that "while the world celebrates today with the color red that signals love, in Palestine the red is the color of the blood spilled due to Zionist thuggery."

Even though the Palestinian female terrorist did not die as a result of the gunshot wound, Palestinian media has already named her a "'martyr'', and claimed she had been executed by the Israeli IDF soldiers.
