Israeli Army Kills One Palestinian Young Man, Injures Dozens in Nablus & Ramallah


Israeli occupation forces shot and killed, on Thursday, a Palestinian young man, and wounded dozens of others during military incursions into the Nablus and Ramallah governorates, local sources have reported.

A large army force invaded several areas of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, including Jerusalem Street, Amman Street, near the Joseph’s Tomb archeological site, and the Balata and Askar refugee camps.

Palestinian youths gathered to protest the invasion, which soldiers responded to by opening fire with live rounds, concussion grenades, and tear gas canisters, killing one and injuring dozens more.

According to Ahmed Jibril, the Nablus director of the ambulance and emergency services with the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS), occupation forces shot Wasim Nasser Abu Khalifa, 20, in the chest, with two live rounds, striking him in the heart.

Medical sources at the Specialized Arab Hospital announced that the young man, Abu Khalifa, a resident of the Balata refugee camp, died as a result of the critical gun shot wounds inflicted by army gun fire.

Three additional young men were shot and critically injured with live rounds, one was shot with a tear gas canister in the head, one was injured from a fall, and 25 others suffered the toxic effects of tear gas inhalation.

The inhalation injuries were treated in the field, while the others were transferred to hospital for medical intervention.

Mourners held a funeral procession which began at the Arab Specialized Hospital toward Rafidia Hospital in Nablus while carrying the body of the slain young man and repeating slogans denouncing the continued and escalating immoral acts of the Israeli occupation forces.

In related news, Israeli forces stormed several areas in the Ramallah and Al-Biereh governorate in the central occupied West Bank, which triggered protests among local Palestinian youths, local sources reported.

Israeli forces opened fire with rubber-coated steel rounds and tear gas canisters at the youths who confronted the army invasion in a number of areas of the governorate.

The PRCS stated that its crews treated a total of 34 injuries, one of whom was shot and injured with a steel round, while the other 33 suffered inhalation injuries as a result of tear gas exposure.
