Caoimhe ("Quiva") Butterly, an Irish volunteer human shield worker who already for months stays in Jenin has today been shot, as reported to us, and was taken to hospital.
During yhe Israeli army reoccupation of Jenin Refugee Camp tanks were shooting at stones throwing kids. When Quiva tried to place herself between the kids and the tanks, she was shot herself in the upper leg from inside the tank and had to be taken to the Jenin hospital.
Earlier this morning she had been detained by soldiers of the same unit and held for several hours before being released - to be shot shortly afterwards.
