Israeli troops shoot and kill a Palestinian youth and demolish homes during invasions targeting West Bank communities. These stories, and more, coming up, stay tuned.
Israeli soldiers invaded, on Wednesday at dawn, the al-Am’ari refugee camp, near the central West Bank city of Ramallah, shot and killed a young Palestinian man, and wounded several others.
Medical sources said resident Issa Salem al-Qatari, 22 years of age, was shot by several live rounds to the chest, and died of his wounds at the Ramallah Governmental Hospital in Ramallah.
Eyewitnesses said dozens of soldiers, and undercover forces, invaded the refugee camp, and kidnapped a Palestinian, identified as ‘Ala Jalayta (ar-Reehawi), from his home. The army also invaded and searched several homes in the camp.
Following the invasion and arrest, clashes took place in the camp after a number of local youths hurled stones at the invading soldiers, while the army fired dozens of rounds of live ammunition in the alleys and homes of the camp, killing al-Qatari, and wounding several others.
Elsewhere, a number of armored Israeli military vehicles and jeeps invaded, on Wednesday morning, various communities in the southern West Bank district of Hebron, injured one Palestinian and kidnapped two.
Also in Hebron, dozens of Israeli military vehicles and armored bulldozers invaded, on Wednesday morning, the al-Hathalin area, east of Hebron, demolishing five homes and structures.
In other news, Palestinian political detainees in Israeli prisoners held a one-day hunger strike, as an initial protest, for the death of a detainee who died, Tuesday, at the Soroka Israeli medical center, following a sharp deterioration in his health condition.
Ra’ed Abdul-Salam al-Ja’bari, 37, is from the southern West Bank city of Hebron. Palestinian Human rights groups say he died because the army refused to provide him with the needed medical care to save his life.
