Israeli Forces Shoot and Kill Young Palestinian Man in West Bank

Israeli forces shot and killed a young Palestinian on Friday morning at Hares junction in the northwest of Salfit in the central West Bank, the Palestinian Ministry of Health has confirmed.

The ministry identified the slain Palestinian man as Ameer Rayyan who was critically injured in the lower abdomen and later succumbed to his injuries after Israeli forces denied access of medics to the scene,” the ministry said in a statement.

But Israeli forces say the young man got out of a vehicle and ran towards a bus stop with a knife in his hand, according Walla, an Israeli media outlet.

“The soldiers in the area ordered the man to stop, and when he did not respond, he was shot with several live rounds in the abdomen”, the agency reported.
