Palestinian Medical sources have reported that a young Palestinian man was shot and killed by an Israeli settler, at the entrance of ar-Ram town, south of the central West Bank city of Ramallah.The sources said resident Mahmoud Hatem Shawamra, 21, was shot by four live rounds in the chest, abdomen, back and thigh. Eyewitnesses said the settler short Shawamra from a very close range.
Israeli soldiers called for an Israeli military ambulance, but Shawamra died of his wounds at the nearby Hezma Israeli military roadblock.
Meanwhile, soldiers clashed with dozens of local protesters, and fired rounds of live ammunition, rubber-coated metal bullets, gas bombs and concussion grenades.
On Tuesday at dawn, several Palestinians were injured after the army invaded the al-‘Arroub refugee camp, north of Hebron, in the southern part of the West Bank.
Red Crescent medics said seven Palestinians were shot by rubber-coated metal bullets, and dozens received treatment for the effects of tear gas inhalation, especially since the army fired gas bombs at homes in the camp.
