Palestinian Young Man Succumbs to Critical Gunshot Wound Inflicted by the Occupation Army on June 1


The Palestinian Ministry of Health announced, on Saturday, the death of a young man who was critically injured on June 1, 2022, after being shot with live rounds in the town of Ya’bad, west of Jenin in the northern occupied West Bank.

The slain young man, identified as Samih Jamal Amarneh, 37, was shot with live rounds and seriously injured by Israeli forces in Ya’bad town on June 1, 2022, during a massive military incursion which sparked intense resistance by local Palestinians.

Amarneh, a former prisoner, was pronounced dead today at the Istishari Hospital in Ramallah, in the central part of the West Bank.

During the army assault, Bilal Kabaha, 24, was shot with live rounds in the chest and thigh, succumbing to his critical wounds shortly afterwards.

The Israeli occupation forces shot and injured six other Palestinian civilians with live rounds, three of whom were deemed critical, including Amarneh.

A large military force invaded the town and detonated the home of Diaa Hamarsheh, who killed 5 Israelis in Tel Aviv, Israel, before being killed by Israeli police on March 30, 2022.

The funeral prayer was held in the town center and the body of the slain young man was laid to rest in the Ya’bad cemetery.

In a press statement, the Hamas resistance movement declared that, “The Israeli cold-blooded killing of Palestinians, which violates all international laws and international humanitarian law, will boost the Palestinians’ strength and determination to combat the occupation.”
