Update: The Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad, has reported that the slain Palestinian was one of its members.
The Brigades stated that the Palestinian has been identified as Mohammad Ali Hasan an-Na’em, 27, from Khan Younis.
The slain Palestinian was unarmed and wasn’t even in military attire when the soldiers attacked him, along with many residents, with their bulldozers, and live rounds.
Updated From Feb 23, 2020, at 10:58: Israeli soldiers shot and killed, on Sunday morning, a young Palestinian man and injured four, on Palestinian lands, in Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.
An Israeli armored bulldozer was filmed repeatedly crushing the body of the slain Palestinian with its blade, then grabbing the corpse with the blade and swinging the body back and forth in the air.
The Israeli army claimed that its soldiers observed two Palestinians approaching the perimeter fence before placing an explosive device.
It alleged that the soldiers then rushed to the scene and fired live ammunition at the two Palestinians, causing the explosive device to explode.
Israeli officials frequently make outrageous claims about Palestinians they kill, which are often proven later to be false.
Media sources in Gaza said several Palestinians tried to reach the two Palestinians to provide them with the needed medical care and move them to a hospital, but a military bulldozer sped towards them and drove over the corpse of the slain Palestinian before scooping it using the bulldozer’s plow.
The Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza has reported that two other Palestinians were shot and injured by Israeli army fire while attempting to help evacuate the wounded.
Israeli sources initially quoted the army claiming its soldiers killed two Palestinians in the incident.
Despite the military claims, a video from the scene shows the corpse of the young man on Palestinian land in an area quite a distance away from the fence.
The bulldozer was speeding toward the Palestinians to prevent them from retrieving the corpse of the slain young man.
