On Wednesday evening, the Palestinian Health Ministry said Israeli soldiers killed a Palestinian man in Deir Dibwan town, east of Ramallah, in the central part of the occupied West Bank. The army also shot and seriously injured a young man in Kafr Ein village northwest of Ramallah.

The Health Ministry said the General Authority of Civil Affairs informed it that the soldiers killed Mojahed Mahmoud Hamed, 32, from Silwad town, east of Ramallah.

It added that the soldiers chased the young man, opened fire at him, and took him to an unknown destination before the Israeli side later informed the General Authority of Civil Affairs that the young man had died from his wounds.

The Health Ministry added that the army initially refused to allow the transfer of the corpse of the slain young man to the Palestinians, but later all handed his body to a Palestinian ambulance before he was moved to Palestine Medical Complex in Ramallah.

The Israeli occupation army claimed the soldiers “neutralized a suspect who opened fire at their military post from a speeding car.”

The army alleged that the soldiers “pursued the car and fired at the suspect who was driving while firing at the soldiers” and that the army initiated a search campaign “looking for more suspects” and added that no soldiers were injured in the incident.

The soldiers also invaded Kafr Ein village, northwest of Ramallah, leading to protests, before shooting a young man with several live rounds in the chest, pelvis, and thigh; his wounds have been described as moderate-to-severe.
