IOF forces kill disabled Palestinian

A 21-year-old Palestinian youth suffering mental disability was killed at dawn Monday at the hands of Israeli occupation forces (IOF) to the east of Breij refugee camp in central Gaza Strip.

Medical sources told the PIC reporter that medical teams retrieved the body of Ahmed Al-Nabahin more than six hours after news of his martyrdom near the buffer zone imposed by the IOF east of Breij.

The sources said that the IOF troops refused Red Cross coordination attempts to allow an ambulance car into the area thus leaving him to bleed to death.

The IOF announced that its soldiers fired at a Palestinian who tried to approach the security fence east of Breij while Hebrew media reported that the man was hit.

Locals in the area said they heard gunshots from IOF positions and saw flare bombs fired in the area.

A local radio station said that the youth was suffering mental disability and was walking near the buffer zone when he was shot and left to bleed to death.
