Mohammad was killed when the Israeli soldiers were withdrawing from Nablus after a massive invasion into several areas, causing dozens of injuries; many were shot with live fire.

Eyewitnesses said the army fired dozens of live rounds at cars, homes, and streets while withdrawing from the area.

The soldiers stormed and ransacked dozens of homes in Beita town, the eastern area of Nablus city, and many villages and towns overnight.

Mohammad was a lawyer with the Wall & Colonization Resistance Commission and was a well-known figure and social activist who represented dozens of families in Israeli courts, filed appeals against the illegal Israeli annexation of Palestinian lands, and defended the rights of the Palestinians, especially the farmers and villagers.

Mohammad was also a known figure, not just to the Palestinians for defending their rights and lands from illegal Israeli annexation and colonies, but also by the Israeli occupation soldiers for his constant participation in the ongoing nonviolent processions against the illegal Israeli Annexation Wall, and the colonies.

He was also known in Israeli courts for representing the families and filing appeals to void illegal annexation orders of the Palestinian lands.
His corpse was moved from Rafidia hospital in Nablus to his home in Kafr Laqif town in Qalqilia.

Thousands of Palestinians participated in Mohammad’s funeral ceremony and burial while chanting against the escalating Israeli crimes and violations and calling for resisting the occupation until liberation and independence.
