Another Palestinian young man was shot and killed, late Thursday night, and three others were injured, during an Israeli army incursion into the northern occupied West Bank city of Jenin, local sources reported.
Israeli soldiers invaded Jenin city, stormed a number of buildings, destroyed motorcycles and a memorial for another slain Palestinian young man who was killed by occupation forces.
The army detained Baraa Kifah Alawneh, after breaking into his home, and deployed sharpshooters on the rooftops of civilian homes during the incursion as several Palestinian youths resisted the invasion.
Soldiers opened fire with live ammunition at the youths, shooting and injuring four, one of whom was shot in the neck and deemed in critical condition.
The seriously injured young man, identified as Salah Briki, 19, was transferred to the Martyr Khalil Suleiman Governmental Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, the Palestinian Ministry of health confirmed.
On Friday, hundreds of Palestinians, including various factions of armed resistance fighters, attended the funeral of the slain young man.
The funeral procession began at the Martyr Khalil Suleiman Governmental Hospital, where mourners carried the body of the martyr to the young man’s family home in the eastern part of the city where his family paid their final respects.
Participants chanted slogans against the constant crimes of the Israeli occupation and called for national unity.
According to the Palestinian News & Information Center (WAFA), Israeli occupation forces have killed 175 Palestinian citizens, including 41 minors, across the West Bank and the besieged Gaza Strip, since the beginning of the year.
The latest report from the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights states that in 2022, Israeli soldiers have “killed 144 Palestinians, including 100 civilians: 27 children, 8 women, and the rest were activists; 15 of them were assassinated.”
