Israel Defense Forces: Palestinian Paramedic Whose Death Caused International Uproar Threw Gas Grenade at Soldiers

A Palestinian paramedic whose death caused an international uproar after she was killed during riots on the Gaza border was caught on video throwing a gas grenade before she was killed, the Israel Defense Forces revealed on Thursday.

Razan al-Najjar was shot, reportedly by Israeli snipers, last Friday during violent demonstrations on the Israel-Gaza border. Pro-Palestinian and left-wing activists claimed she was merely giving aid to the wounded and pounced on the incident as an example of Israel supposedly killing unarmed demonstrators unlawfully. Her picture we it viral on social media and incendiary kites sent over the border bore her image. Thousands of people attended her funeral.

An ongoing IDF investigation, however, has revealed that al-Najjar in fact participated in the violence, throwing a gas grenade and acting as a human shield.
