In Memory Of Razan Najjar: 10 Memorable Photos Before Her Death

The act of attacking health workers even in a state of war is prohibited by the UN conventions. Thus, the killing of 21-year old Najjar by Israeli soldiers last Friday is considered a war crime. As the story continue to unfold, Najjar’s murder has increased awareness of the situation of Palestinians and many across the world are increasingly questioning Israel’s actions and calling for the UN to act.

 

“I suffocated from tear gas. I fainted for about an hour. I woke up in an ambulance and I left it. I went crazy because I wanted to continue my work and my journey. I came to give care, not get care. With all pride I want to continue helping others till the last day.” Razan Najjar
