Border police reported that the woman approached them and did not respond to their orders to halt. They then shot in the air as a warning and when she failed to respond, they shot in the air. They then shot at her lower body.

The suspect, a woman in her 40s from Tulkarem, explained her behavior by saying she wanted to die due to family issues.
