Israeli soldiers shot and killed, on Monday morning, a young Palestinian man, south of the northern West Bank city of Tulkarem, Palestinian medical sources said.Update: Palestinian Red Crescent medics have transferred the body of the slain Palestinian to Thabet Thabet governmental hospital in Tulkarem.
Head of the Tulkarem office of the Red Crescent Raed Yassin said the medics were informed, approximately at 7:15 in the morning, that a young man was injured near the Jabara Gate, south of Tulkarem.
The medics rushed to the scene to find an Israeli ambulance holding the body of Ahmad Hasan Toba, 19, before handing him to the Palestinian side.
Yassin said initial examination revealed that the slain Palestinian teen suffered five gunshot wounds in his neck, chest and back.
The sources added that the soldiers killed Ahmad Hasan Toba, 19, from Kafr Jammal village, south of Tulkarem.
Israeli sources claimed the young Palestinian ‘crossed the Wall into lands of the Sal’it settlement,’ illegally built on Palestinian lands near Tulkarem, and that the soldiers rushed to the scene, and conducted searches.
The soldiers then located the Palestinian teenager reportedly in the bushes, and ‘tried to approach him,’ to arrest him, but he ‘pulled a knife and the soldiers shot him dead,’ according to Israeli Ynet News said.
His father said Ahmad usually works in constructions whenever he has a chance.
The Israel army transferred the body of the slain teen to the Palestinian side.
