On Sunday, Israeli soldiers killed a Palestinian worker near the illegal Annexation Wall, south of Qalqilia, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank, and took his corpse to Meir Medical Center in Kfar Saba after refusing to allow Palestinian medics to reach him.
The Palestinian Health Ministry said the soldiers fatally shot Nabil Ahmad Taiseer Ghanem, 53, from Sorra village, southwest of Nablus.
The Health Ministry added that the soldiers fired live rounds at Palestinian workers while trying to cross the Jaljulia gate of the illegal Annexation Wall, killing Ghanem before taking his corpse away.
The Israeli army claimed the soldiers fired live rounds at Ahmad when he reportedly “attempted to damage a section of the Wall” but failed to provide any details of the allegation.
Eyewitnesses refuted the military’s allegations and said dozens of Palestinian workers were trying to cross the gate of the Annexation Wall when the soldiers fired at them to force them to leave, although they carried permits to cross.
The soldiers also attacked Palestinian workers near the Taybeh military roadblock, southwest of Tulkarem in the northern West Bank, and fired gas bombs at them, causing dozens to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.
On Sunday dawn, the soldiers abducted thirteen Palestinian construction workers in Barta’a town, southwest of Jenin, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.
The attacks are part of escalated Israeli violations against the Palestinian workers, especially in areas near the Annexation Wall, abducted many workers, and injured several others after attacking them with live fire for not obtaining permits to work in occupied Jerusalem.
