Israeli forces shot a Palestinian young man in the neck, on Friday, in the village of Al-Tuwanah, south of Hebron, in the southern occupied West Bank, the Jerusalem Press reported.
The victim, Harun Rasmi Abu Aram, 24, was shot in the neck with live rounds as he attempted to stop the seizure of his generator by Israeli soldiers.
Witnesses told Palestinian WAFA News Agency that Israeli soldiers fired from point blank range, striking the young man in the neck. He was then transferred to the Yatta Public Hospital, where his condition was deemed critical.
In a statement, the Palestinian Ministry of Health announced that Abu Aram has suffered complete paralysis of his arms and legs (quadriplegia), as a result of sustaining live rounds to the neck, at close range, which severed his spine.
The Palestinian was arguing with the soldiers who were trying to confiscate his electricity generator, providing him and his family with the needed power to their home.
