Welcome to Palestine Today, a service of the International Middle East Media Center,, for Monday, June, 05, 2017.

Israeli police kill a Palestinian young man near Tal Aviv and wounds five others at the Gaza borders. These stories, and more, coming up, stay tuned.

Israeli police officers shot and killed, on Monday evening, a young Palestinian man in Kafr Qassem, east of Tel Aviv, after the police invaded the town, and resorted to excessive use of force against the residents, amidst accusations that the police are not providing security to the Arab citizens of the country facing increasing levels of organized crime, and violence.

The slain Palestinian, Mohammad Taha, 27, was shot by the police with three live rounds in the head, from a close range, without posing any threat to them, and died from his wounds at the Beilinson Israeli medical center.

After shooting the young man, the police imposed curfew and abducted dozens of residents, before moving them to detention and interrogation centers.

Following the fatal shooting, clashes erupted between dozens of residents and police officers, lasting until early morning hours, during which the police fired live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets and gas bombs.

In other news, Israeli soldiers invaded, on Monday at dawn, the al-Jalazonerefugee camp, north of the central West Bank city of Ramallah, and fired many gas bombs, causing several Palestinians from the same household, to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation.

In related news, the soldiers abducted a young man from the town of ath-Thaheriyya, south of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank, and detained another Palestinian from Hebron city.

Elsewhere, Israeli soldiers shot and injured, on Monday evening, five young Palestinian men with live fire, during clashes that took place after the soldiers opened fire on youngsters in Palestinian lands, close to the border fence, in various parts of the besieged coastal region.
