Kibbutz Volunteer Critically Shot

Download PDF for this date

A young West German woman working as a kibbutz volunteer was rushed to a Beersheba hospital Sunday for treatment of gunshot wounds. Her condition was reported critical.

The woman, whose identity was withheld, was discovered in a coma in a field near Kibbutz Revivim. She had been shot in the head and hand by an unidentified assailant. She was working at a Kibbutz in Galilee but left there to stay in Jerusalem and apparently was visiting the Negev.

She is the second woman shot in the same area in less than a year. Last summer, a young Israeli woman soldier was found critically wounded in a Negev field not far from Revivim.
