Palestinian Young Man Killed By Israeli Soldiers In West Bank: Medics

RAMALLAH, Dec 23 (NNN-WAFA) – A Palestinian young man was killed last night, by Israeli soldiers, near the West Bank city of Ramallah, medics and eyewitnesses said.

Mohammed Eassa Abbas, 26, from al-Ama’ri refugee camp near Ramallah, was shot in the back by Israeli soldiers, on the outskirts of the refugee camp, and died shortly after being brought to Ramallah Hospital, the Palestinian Health Ministry said, in a statement.

Eyewitnesses said, intensive gunfire was heard on the outskirts of the refugee camp, apparently as a result of clashes with Israeli soldiers.

The killing came, just a day after a suspected Palestinian attacker was killed by Israeli soldiers, at an Israeli army checkpoint near the northern West Bank city of Jenin, according to Palestinian official sources, and the Israeli army.

On Monday, the Palestinians condemned the Israeli army’s decision, to allow its soldiers to directly open fire at Palestinians who throw stones or Molotov cocktails, in the West Bank, even after they had run away.

“The decision serves as a green light to commit more field executions against the Palestinians, according to the whims, moods, and assessments of the Israeli soldiers,” the Palestinian Foreign Ministry said, in a press statement.
