Israeli soldiers killed, on Wednesday evening, a young Palestinian man from the al-Am’ari refugee camp, south of the central West Bank city of Ramallah. Media sources stated that the Palestinian was shot by the soldiers in the al-Biereh nearby city.
In a statement, the Israeli army claimed that its soldiers were looking for Palestinians who were spotted approaching the Psagot colony and fired a few live rounds.
It added that its soldiers then invaded the outskirts of al-Biereh city looking for Palestinians, before they came under fire from a passing vehicle, and fired at the car, wounding a young man.
The slain Palestinian was not the driver but was apparently on the passenger side of the vehicle; no soldiers were injured in the incident.
The Palestinian Health Ministry said the slain young man has been identified as Mohammad Issa Abbas , 26, and added that he was shot in the back before he was rushed to Palestine Medical Complex where he succumbed to his serious wounds.
