Palestinian woman dies after Israel obstructs ambulance access

JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian elderly woman died, on Saturday evening, of a heart attack while inside the Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East Jerusalem, after Israeli forces prevented ambulances from reaching her.

The Palestinian Red Crescent said, in a statement, that medics at Al-Aqsa attempted to provide aid to the elderly woman after she had lost consciousness while inside the mosque, and called for an ambulance to transfer her to a hospital.

Israeli forces reportedly prevented the ambulance from reaching the woman for around 8 minutes.

The woman was identified as Sumayya Mahmoud Nasser, 68, from the Jit area in Palestinian lands occupied in 1948.
