Palestine: Palestinian teen dies after being shot by Israeli forces

By Mustafa Deveci

 

JERUSALEM (AA): A Palestinian teen shot by Israeli forces last week died at an Israeli hospital on Saturday.

Palestinian Health Ministry said in a written statement that 20-year-old Omar Avni Yunus — shot by Israeli troops on April 20 — succumbed to his wounds at a hospital near Tel Aviv.

Yunus was heavily injured after getting shot by Israeli gunfire in a checkpoint in occupied West Bank.

The soldiers, stationed at Za’tara military roadblock, north of Nablus, shot the young man with several rounds of live ammunition, reportedly after he attempted to stab them, and prevented Palestinian medics from approaching him.

The Palestinian was from Sanniriya town, south of Qalqilia, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank. No soldiers were injured in the reported incident.

Israeli troops took him to a hospital near Tel Aviv following the gunfire.

Similar incidents took place in the West Bank in the past with the Israeli military citing stabbing attempts by Palestinians as a reason for opening fire.
