Terrorist israeli forces kill another Palestinian in al-Khalil
Israeli forces have killed a Palestinian in the occupied West Bank as dozens more are injured in violent clashes in another Day of Rage.
Palestinian medical sources in al-Ahli Hospital confirmed on Friday that Hassan al-Bo, 21, died after he was hit in the heart by live ammunition during a demonstration in the city of al-Khalil (Hebron) south of the occupied city of al-Quds.
Meanwhile, a series of Israeli attacks on peaceful Palestinian demonstrations injured dozens, with Palestine’s Red Crescent saying 11 people were shot with live fire as they were attending a peaceful gathering in Bireh, north of Ramallah.
It said four others were wounded in similar incidents in al-Khalil and Qalqiliya, while another 14 were victims of Israel’s use of rubber-coated steel bullets against the demonstrators.
Other reports said a medic was reportedly shot in the ear during a protest near al-Azza refugee camp in the city of Bethlehem.
Two Israeli settlers killed
The march in al-Khalil, which was called after Friday prayers by the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas on another Day of Rage, was apparently the biggest in size, with reports saying it turned into a deadly confrontation between the Palestinians and the Israeli forces.
During the demonstration, a 55-year-old man and three teenagers were shot in Ras al-Jura area. A separate report by Ma’an said one of those injured in al-Khalil clashes is in a very critical condition. Reports said two Israeli settlers were killed in violent clashes in al-Khalil.
Other health sources in the West Bank said at least 28 Palestinians were injured by tear gas in the clashes in Bireh, Bethlehem, al-Khalil, and Qalqiliya.
The casualties on Friday are the latest in a string of violent incidents affecting the West Bank and the Gaza Strip over the past eight weeks. More than 80 Palestinians have been killed since clashes erupted in mid-September over an alleged plan by the Israelis to change the status quo of the al-Aqsa compound, a highly revered place for the Muslims across the world. The clashes have also killed more than a dozen Israelis.
Earlier in the day, a Palestinian teenager identified as Mahmoud al-Shalaldeh, died at al-Ahli Hospital of wounds sustained in clashes with Israeli forces in the town of Sa’ir a day before.
