The left wing Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz, reports that the "IDF's commander in the West Bank, Brig. Gen. Nitzan Alon, refuted Friday the Palestinian claims that a Bil'in woman died as a result of inhaling tear gas at an anti-separation fence protest last week, saying she died of other medical complications - IDF chief in West Bank: Palestinian woman didn't die from inhaling tear gas.

"Nitzan said that over the past week, the Israel Defense Forces' initial conjecture that it was not the tear gas that had killed 36-year-old Jawaher Abu Rahmah has strengthened.

"She most probably died as a result of other complications, combined with problems in the medical care she received at the Palestinian hospital," Nitzan said.

The hospital gave her the wrong medication from complications relating to a pre-existing illness. Her own doctor said she had asthma.

The family knows it will get bubkes if it sues the Ramallah Hospital for its negligence.

The family blames Israel for tear gassing her even though she was 500 metres away from the protest.

The family now wants to sue Israel for her death.

The PA cries "war crime".

I think I know who the real criminals are.
