On Thursday morning, the Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed the death of a Palestinian child whom Israeli soldiers shot and seriously injured more than three weeks ago in Betunia town, west of Ramallah, in the central part of the occupied West bank.

The Health Ministry said the child, Mohammad Fadi Nouri, 16, was shot with a live round in the abdomen, leading to extensive internal organ damage and bleeding, and remained in a serious condition until she succumbed to his wounds.

Mohammad, from Betunia town west of Ramallah, was shot on September 28 during protests at the northern entrance of Al-Biereh city near Ramallah when the soldiers also shot and seriously injured many Palestinians.

The Palestinians were protesting the death of four Palestinians, Mohammad Hisham Abu Na’sa, 25 Ahmad Nathmi Alawna, 24 Abdul-Rahman Fathi Khazem, 27 Mohammad Mahmoud Barahma, 30, who were killed by Israeli soldiers in Jenin, in the northern West Bank.

On Wednesday night, Israeli soldiers killed Odai Kamal Tamimi, 22, near Ma’ale Adumim illegal colony, east of the occupied capital Jerusalem in the West Bank, after he opened fire at security guards, mildly wounded one.

The Israeli army has been looking for Odai after holding him responsible for the death of an Israeli soldier, Noa Lazar, 18, and the serious injury of a security guard at a military roadblock near Shu’fat.

A day before the soldier’s death, the army killed Ahmad Mohammad Hussein Daraghma, 24, and Mahmoud Moayyad Sous, 18, in Jenin, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

Their deaths also came just a day after the Israeli soldiers killed two Palestinian teens, Adel Ibrahim Adel Daoud, 14, and Mahdi Mohammad Ladadwa, 17, and injured dozens of Palestinians near Qalqilia and Ramallah in the northern and central parts of the occupied West Bank.

On October 11, an Israeli soldier, Ido Baruch, 20, succumbed to serious wounds he suffered in a shooting targeting a large group of Israeli colonizers, guarded by dozens of soldiers, marching near Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

The Palestinian Health Ministry said the soldiers killed 174 Palestinians since the beginning of this year, 2022, 123 of them in the West Bank and 51 in the Gaza Strip and added that among the slain Palestinians are 41 children.
