Occupation Forces Shoot and Kill a Palestinian Man, Injure 7 More Near Hebron


Israeli forces shot and killed, on Thursday, a Palestinian young man in the town of Halhoul, north of Hebron in the southern occupied West Bank, the Ministry of Health has confirmed.

A large Israeli military force invaded the town, closed the main street, restricting the movement of citizens in addition to storming and closing a money exchange shop, which triggered protests among Palestinian youths.

Occupation forces opened fire at those who resisted the incursion with live rounds, rubber-coated steel rounds, tear gas canisters and concussion grenades, injuring at least 6 young men.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health released a statement that 27-year-old Mahmoud Fayez Abu Ayhour was shot with a live round in the abdomen by Israeli forces, sustaining a critical injury.

The statement added that the young man was transferred to hospital where the medical team admitted him to the operating room, all live saving measures were unsuccessful, the young man succumbed to his wounds.

The slain young man, a married father of one was shot in the abdomen with a live bullet which pierced the diaphragm and the aorta (the main artery carrying blood from the heart), leading to the death of the young man.

Three more young men were shot with live rounds, while two more were shot and injured with rubber-coated steel rounds.

All of the injured were brought to Al-Ahly Hospital in Hebron for medical intervention, the condition and identities of the other injured men were unknown at the time of this report.

Hundreds of mourners gathered in front of the Al-Mizan Hospital in Hebron, while a number of young men carried the body of the martyr on their shoulders to the family home in the Nabi Younis (Prophet Jonah) area in the town.

Mourners carried the body, wrapped in the Palestinian flag to the mosque in Halhoul where the body of the slain young man was laid to rest.

During confrontations between Palestinian youths and the army, hours after the murder of Abu Ayhour, occupation soldiers shot two more young men, one with a live round and another with a rubber-coated steel round.

The Ministry of Health reported that a young man was shot in the chest with live ammunition by the army. He was transferred to Hebron Public Hospital in critical condition.

The condition of the young man who was shot in the eye with a rubber-coated steel round, was deemed stable.

It is unclear whether the confrontations occurred during the funeral or at another location as sources vary in the details of the incidents.
