By Qais Abu Samra
RAMALLAH (AA): A Palestinian man was killed by Israeli army bullets in Jerusalem, the Palestinian Health Ministry said Thursday. On Wednesday, a Palestinian was shot dead by Israeli forces near Ramallah.
The man was identified as Daoud Mahmoud Khalil Rayan, 42, the ministry said.
Eyewitnesses told Anadolu Agency that clashes erupted between dozens of Palestinians and the Israeli army after Israeli troops stormed the town of Beit Duqqu claiming to search a Palestinian’s house who was accused of a car-ramming attack.
The army used live and metal bullets and tear gas canisters, according to witnesses.
On Wednesday, the Palestinian Civil Affairs Authority stated that “the occupation army shot dead Habas Abdel Hafeez Yousef Rayan, 54, from the town of Beit Duqqu, northwest of Ramallah.”
Israeli sources claimed the Palestinian injured an officer after ramming his car into a soldier at the roadblock and stepping out of his car carrying an axe before the soldier, who was on the ground, fired several rounds at him and killed him, reported Imemc.org.
The sources said the wounded soldier was conscious after suffering limb wounds before he was evacuated to Shaare Zedek hospital in Jerusalem, where he was admitted to surgery.
On Sunday, four Israelis were injured in a car-ramming attack near the city of Jericho.
