Welcome to Palestine Today, a service of the International Middle East Media Center, www.imemc.org, for Tuesday, March 15, 2016.
Palestinian youth dies of wounds sustained two weeks ago during army invasions targeting West Bank, meanwhile Israeli forces invade areas in Gaza. These stories, and more, coming up, stay tuned.
A young man died, Tuesday, of serious wounds he suffered two weeks ago after Israeli soldiers invaded the Qalandia refugee camp, north of occupied Jerusalem, Palestinian medical sources reported.
The sources said that Nahed Mteir, 24, was shot with a live Israeli army bullet, in his neck, and remained in a very serious condition until his death.
During the invasion, two weeks ago, the soldiers killed a young man, identified as Eyad Sajdiyya, 22, and wounded, at least, seventeen others, including Mteir, he was moved to the Hadassah Israeli medical center, in occupied Jerusalem.
The Israeli army claimed one of its vehicles, carrying two soldiers, accidentally drove into the refugee camp before dozens of Palestinians clashed with them. The vehicle was burnt and the two soldiers fled the scene, after dozens of soldiers invaded the camp, and secured their retreat.
In related news, The Head of the General Prosecutors’ Office in Hebron Ashraf Mashal has reported that autopsies performed on the three Palestinians, who were killed by the Israeli military on Monday in Hebron, revealed that the soldiers fired an excessive number of bullets into the Palestinians, even after killing them.
Several similar incidents, captured on video, reveal a systematic policy of executions that include the use of ‘overkill’, firing numerous additional bullets into Palestinians who were already dead.
Mashal testified that the Israeli soldiers fired many live rounds into the heads of the three Palestinians, and also fired many live rounds into various parts of their bodies.
Elsewhere, Israeli soldiers invaded, on Tuesday at dawn, various districts of the occupied West Bank, searched homes and kidnapped 29 Palestinians. The soldiers also invaded Kadoori college, in Tulkarem, and searched several buildings.
In the besieged Gaza Strip, several armored Israeli military vehicles and bulldozers carried out a limited invasion into Palestinian agricultural lands, east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the coastal region, and uprooted some of them.
The soldiers also fired many rounds of live ammunition during the invasion, while bulldozing the lands.
