Days of Palestine – Hebron

Israeli occupation forces shot and killed Thursday a Palestinian in Halhul town, north of Hebron, according to a statement issued by the Health Ministry.

The statement said that Mahmoud Fayez Abu Aihoor, 27, succumbed to the critical wounds he sustained after being shot by Israeli soldiers in the course of confrontations in the southern West Bank town.

The statement added that “the bullet penetrated Abu Aihoor’s abdomen, diaphragm, and aorta, and all the attempts by the medical staff to save his life did not succeed.”

The confrontations erupted when a sizable Israeli military force stormed the town, blocked off the main street, and ransacked, and closed down a local money exchange shop amid the intense shooting of gunfire, tear gas canisters, and concussion grenades.

The confrontations resulted in three live fire injuries and two rubber-coated steel injuries.

All the casualties were rushed to a hospital for treatment. The medical condition of each one of them remains unclear.
