Israeli forces execute new Palestinian in West Bank

Days of Palestine -

Israeli occupation forces executed on Saturday morning new Palestinian youth in Tel-Rumeida neighbourhood of West Bank city of Al-Khalil.

Eyewitnesses said that the Israeli occupation forces opened fire at the Palestinian while trying to enter into the besieged neighbourhood throughout an Israeli checkpoint point.

The Palestinian, who was identified as Hatim Shaloudi, 25, from Al-Khalil, was fatally wounded and left bleeding to death in the scene.

His mother told Days of Palestine that the Israeli occupation soldiers prevented any medical help for the youth, as well as they prevented her from approaching him.

Israeli occupation army claimed that the youth had a knife and had lightly stabbed an Israeli soldier, who was taken to hospital.

However, as usual, they did not provide a picture of the claimed wounded Israeli soldier, mention his name or give details about the hospital which treated him.

Shaloudi is the fourth person who had been executed by the Israeli occupation forces in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem since yesterday.

On Friday, a Jordanian citizen was executed in Jerusalem’s Old City, a man was executed in Al-Khalil and his fiancé was seriously wounded and a 15-year-old boy was executed at the same neighbourhood where Shaloudi was executed today.

All of the martyrs were executed under claims that they attempted to kill Israeli soldiers.

Since October, the Israeli occupation has executed more than 2,35 Palestinian children, women, men and elderly in the occupied West Bank, Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip.
