May 26, 2023 | IMEMC News
On Friday, an Israeli guard shot a Palestinian in an illegal Israeli colony in Hebron, in the occupied West Bank’s southern part.
Update: The Palestinian Health Ministry said the young man has been identified as Ala’ Khalil Qaisiyya, 26, from the Ath-Thaheriyya town, south of Hebron.
The Health Ministry said Israeli soldiers and colonizers have killed 157, including 36 from the Gaza Strip and 26 children, since the beginning of this year.
The Palestinian is the cousin of Sa’ad Mahmoud Qaisiyya, 25, who a paramilitary colonizer killed, on March 1, 2017, in the same colony.
Israeli reports said a security team member shot the Palestinian, who was reportedly “heading to a synagogue in Teneh Omarim colony, where holiday prayers were taking place,” and added that “the guard shot him at the entrance of the building.”
According to Ynet News, the Palestinian was shot in what it called “an attempted stabbing attack,” adding that the security guard shot him when he was “wielding his knife.” No Israelis were injured in the reported incident. (...)
