Nurse Razan Al Najjar, 21, was approaching a wounded protester near the border fence in Khan Younis when she was shot dead on Friday June 1rst 2018.

‘I am targeted by the Israeli army,’ Razan al-Najjar said before she was killed.She was working at the at Israel-Gaza border. “I received information about the Israeli army’s intentions towards me. I had to stay away from the field because of my activities of tending to the injured but I ignore all of that.”

Her death was filmed as she walked towards her patient with her hands raised, dressed in a white medical vest and wearing her health worker ID.

We are stones standing in front of bullets”. That’s how 21-year-old Razan al-Najjar explained the situation to Mersiha Gadzo and Anas Jnena in April regarding the unarmed Palestinian demonstrators on the ground facing Israeli snipers from across the fence. Al-Najjar also told them that an Israeli soldier had threatened to kill her if she continued aiding protesters.

“Soldiers tried to kill me so many times,” Razan explained. Her mother Sabreen explained why she was attending the demonstration. “For me, coming here is more powerful than words. I came to complete my daughter’s mission…. We will continue working tirelessly until the whole world gets our message.”

Israel says her killing was unintentional and has opened an investigation.
