Sister of terror victim Shalhevet Pass injured by Palestinian rock throwers

JERUSALEM (JTA) — The sister of Shalhevet Pass, who was shot to death more than a decade ago by a Palestinian gunman, was injured by rock-throwing Palestinians in the same Hebron park where her sister was killed.

Nachala Pass, 10, was hurt Tuesday afternoon by a rock while she played in the park. Two other children also were injured.

Shalhevet Pass was 10 months old when she was killed by a Palestinian sniper 11 years ago in the park in Hebron’s Avraham Avinu neighborhood.

Jewish residents of Hebron who entered the city’s Arab market after the attack to protest were separated from the Palestinian merchants and customers by the Israeli military to avoid violent confrontations, Ynet  reported.
