A young man was killed on Saturday evening by Israeli occupation forces near the town of Beit Ummar, north of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

The Public Authority for Civil Affairs stated that it had informed the Ministry of Health of the death of the young man, Mohammad Raed Nayef Baradiya, 23, by Israeli occupation bullets near the town of Beit Ummar.

Israeli police claimed that a vehicular collision in the West Bank was an alleged ‘ramming attack’ by a Palestinian driver. Three Israelis were injured in the incident, which took place near the Palestinian village of Beit Ummar.

Soon after the vehicle collision, Israeli military troops fired numerous live rounds at the driver, without stopping to question him.

Local sources reported that the occupation soldiers left the 23-year old driver bleeding on the ground, and prevented Palestinian ambulances from approaching the place, until he died.

The sources indicated that the killed Palestinian, Baradiya, who worked in the medical services of the Palestinian security forces, was from Surif, northwest of Hebron.

The Israeli occupation authorities claimed that three of its soldiers were wounded, two of them seriously, in an alleged “vehicle ramming attack” operation carried out by a Palestinian near the junction of the settlement bloc, “Gush Etzion”, which is located on stolen Palestinian land south of Bethlehem.

With the killing of the young man, the death toll since the beginning of this year has risen to 92, including 17 children and a woman, and a young man from the village of Hura in the Negev within the borders of what is now Israel.
