Palestine: 7 Palestinians killed by Israeli forces in West Bank

RAMALLAH, Palestine (AA, Wafa, Imemc): At least seven Palestinians were killed and dozens injured early Monday by Israeli forces in several cities in the occupied West Bank.

Medical sources at the Al-Ahli Hospital in Hebron, in the West Bank’s southern part, said the soldiers killed Mohammad Jawad Zghayyar, 21, after shooting him with a live round at the western entrance of Hebron city.

They added that the medics rushed the young man to the hospital, but he succumbed to gunshot wounds in the chest.

In a series of statements, the Palestinian Health Ministry said that one person was killed in Jericho, three in Qalandia in northern Jerusalem and two in Hebron and one in Nablus by gunfire from occupation forces.

In Jericho, in the northeastern West Bank, the soldiers killed Abdul-Halim Ibrahim Abu Sneina, 24, during protests at the city’s northern entrance. The slain young man was shot in the chest and the abdomen.

The soldiers killed Mohammad Ziad Abdul-Jalil Hmeid, 24, from Beit Anan town northwest of occupied Jerusalem, Amjad Maher Elian Khdeir, 36, from Gaza City but lived in Ramallah, and Tha’er Sami Kasba, 17, from the Qalandia refugee camp, north of Jerusalem.

In Beita town, south of Nablus, the soldiers killed Emad Jareh Adel Yassin, 19, after shooting him in the neck during protests at the town’s main entrance.

Medics rushed him to a medical center in Nablus, but he succumbed to his serious wounds despite efforts to save his life.

On Sunday dawn, the soldiers killed Ahmad Atef Awawda, 19, from Doura town, southwest of Hebron in the occupied West Bank’s southern part, after shooting him near Deir Sharaf town, west of Nablus.

The Palestinian group Hamas launched Operation Al-Aqsa Flood on Saturday, saying the surprise multifront attack on Israel was in response to the storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East Jerusalem and increased settler violence. It said it fired rockets and captured many Israelis.

In retaliation, the Israeli army initiated Operation Swords of Iron against Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

At least 417 Palestinians have been killed, including 78 children and 41 women and nearly 2,200 others injured in the attacks, according to medical sources in Gaza, while the Israeli death toll has climbed to over 700.
