On Monday evening, Israeli soldiers killed a young Palestinian man and injured two after the army invaded Husan village, west of Bethlehem, in the occupied West Bank. He is the sixth Palestinian the soldiers killed in the West Bank since the early morning hours.
Many army vehicles invaded the Al-Matina area at the eastern entrance of Husan, leading to protests before the soldiers fired live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades.
The Palestinian Health Ministry said the soldiers killed Zakariya Mohammad Zakariya Za’oul, 20, after shooting him with a live round in the head.
It added that Palestinian medics rushed the young man to a hospital in Bethlehem but succumbed to his serious wounds.
The soldiers also shot two Palestinians, one in the neck and one in the abdomen, and abducted another young man.
Earlier Monday, the Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed that Israeli soldiers killed five Palestinians, including a child, and injured at least 100, including 23 who suffered life-threatening wounds, in Jenin and the Jenin refugee camp, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.
