Woman in fake dressmaker suit with face covering walks into shop
A woman dressed as a doll wearing a dressmaker’s mask walks into a small store in the northern West Bank city of Hebron on Wednesday, wearing a mannequins headdress.
She entered the shop wearing a costume similar to that worn by a man in the film “Ghostbusters” wearing sunglasses and a wig, with a mask covering her face.
The shop owner said the woman, who has not been identified, is a customer.
She has also asked for her face to be removed to avoid attracting unwanted attention.
The Jerusalem Post was unable to confirm the authenticity of the video.
Habash, a woman in her 50s, was arrested after trying to enter the store with the mask on, the shop owner told Ma’an.
The woman was detained on suspicion of stealing, vandalizing and causing damage to a religious site.
The shop owner asked residents to not take photos of the woman.
Israel’s police chief, Roni Alsheich, said Wednesday that the shopkeeper had not contacted him.
Alsheich said the shop’s owner, a man who is a member of the Druze sect, had been detained by the police after the incident.
Alshaya Abu-Salha, a spokesman for the Palestinian Ministry of the Interior, said Abu-Salaah was the owner of the shop.
“It is not the first time that a shop owner has been detained and his security guards have arrested him for the same incident,” Abu-salha said.
Israel has a law against the wearing of face coverings and has cracked down on the illegal sale of the masks.
The Israeli Defense Forces say the masks are used by masked assailants to commit attacks, and that it is up to individuals to remove them.
