Palestine: Israeli soldiers kill Palestinian in Nabi Saleh
On Tuesday afternoon, Israeli soldiers killed a young Palestinian after shooting him with live fire in Nabi Saleh village, northwest of Ramallah, in the central part of the occupied West Bank, according to imemc.org.
Media sources said the young man from Kafr Ein nearby village was shot in the abdomen and was rushed to the Istishari Hospital in Ramallah but succumbed to his serious wounds.
The slain young man was later identified as Nihad Amin Barghouthi, 24, who was also a former political prisoner, and a while back was shot and injured by the soldiers. His father is a retired Palestinian Intelligence officer.
An off-duty medic who lives nearby told Quds News Network (QNN) that the young man was not among the protesters but was walking in the area when the soldiers fired two rounds at him, hitting him with one.
“I rushed to help him and tried to talk to him, but he wasn’t alert, although he was still conscious…” the medic said, “We live in a village, no medical center or a hospital nearby, and then some Palestinians rushed to help before we took him in a civilian car to the hospital…”
Local activist Bilal Tamimi said the soldiers attacked Palestinian protesters at the village’s main entrance.
He added that the army fired many live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades at the Palestinians, causing several injuries.
In addition, many Palestinians suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation after the Israeli army shot tear gas canisters at the Palestinians in the area surrounding the Al-Quds University in Abu Dis town, southeast of the occupied capital, Jerusalem.
Earlier on Monday, Israeli army killed a Palestinian and wounded 20 others after storming the Silat Al-Harithiya village, north of the occupied West Bank.
The Palestinian Ministry of Health in a statement identified the deceased as 17-year-old Muhammad Abu Salah.
The soldiers closed the town and prevented Palestinian medics from reaching the Abu Salah for more than an hour before Palestinians managed to carry the corpse of the slain teen and took it to Ibn Sina government hospital in Jenin.
Mahmoud Sa’adi, the head of the Emergency Department of the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) in Jenin, said the soldiers attacked ambulances and prevented them from reaching areas of protests to provide the needed treatment to the Palestinians.
