There was a security alert in place last night at the Kotel (Western Wall), and police were on edge. Yeshiva students had been warned to stay indoors rather than mill about the plaza in front of the Kotel or pray there. But the only person shot was a 35-year-old haredi woman dressed in an odd improvised version of a burka.

Haredi Burka Cult Taliban Woman Shot By Cop At Kotel

There was a security alert in place last night at the Kotel (Western Wall), and police were on edge. Yeshiva students had been warned to stay indoors rather than mill about the plaza in front of the Kotel or pray there.
Even so, all was tense but calm – until then shots rang out.
It wasn’t a Hamas terrorist firing at worshippers or an Israeli cop firing at a terrorist.
Instead, Ha'aretz reported that an Israeli cop had just shot a 35-year old haredi woman wearing multiple heavy dresses and wrapped in several blankets, despite the summer heat – a member of the haredi Burka (Burqa) cult.
The cult (also known as the haredi “Taliban” women) wear many layers of dark heavy clothing, including hoods, that cover their entire bodies from head to toe for reasons of "modesty" even during the hottest summer months and make them look much like women in the most repressive Muslim societies.
The officer claims the haredi woman approached a security checkpoint at the entrance to the Western Wall Plaza wearing many layers of dresses, wrapped in blankets, and acting strangely.
The officer says he ordered her to stop but she failed to do or acknowledge him and just kept walking toward the Kotel.
The officer says he fired a warning shot into the air, but the Burka cult woman still failed to stop and still failed to respond.
The officer then fired at her legs, moderately wounding her, and other officers restrained her.
