A young Palestinian man was shot dead today by Israeli occupation soldiers at Beit Einoun junction, to the north of Hebron in the south of the occupied West Bank, according to the Ministry of Health.

Israeli occupation forces opened fire at Fadi Mohammad Fayez Ghattas, 19, and seriously injured him. The man was reportedly left bleeding on the ground helplessly without being offered first aid, and medics were denied access to him.

According to witnesses and local sources, the man was left bleeding on the ground for a few minutes until he succumbed to his wounds.
