Palestine: Israeli army gunfire kills Palestinian man in West Bank

By Qais Abu Samra

 

RAMALLAH (AA): A Palestinian man was fatally shot Friday by Israeli forces in the central West Bank, according to a Palestinian official.

Radhi Abu Fakhida, head of the village council of Ras Karkar, west of Ramallah, told Anadolu Agency that the Palestinian Civil Liaison Authority, a Palestinian body for communication with Israeli authorities, informed the family of a young man named Khaled Nofal, 34, that he had been killed on Raysan mountain, near the village.

He said the body of the Palestinian was in the Israeli occupation authorities’ custody.

He added: “The occupation forces seized the body of the martyr, stormed the area and took his father Maher Nofal and his brother Muhammad to the site of his martyrdom, with the aim of seeing his personal belongings and traces of blood.”

Since morning, the Israeli army has barred entry into Ras Karkar, also preventing those inside from leaving.

Eyewitnesses told Anadolu Agency that Nofal was killed near an Israeli settlement, located on Raisan Mountain.

No further details were available about the circumstances of the incident.
