Israeli occupation murders Palestinian protester in West Bank

Days of Palestine -

Israeli occupation forces shot and killed Palestinian protesters during Friday protests organised against US decision on Jerusalem and in support for the Palestinian holy city.

The victim, the Palestinian ministry of health said, was identified as Mohammed al-Jabari, 24, from the West Bank city of Al-Khalil.

He was shot during the protests, rushed to the hospital and then succumbed to his severe wounds. The ministry said that the Palestinian paramedics did their best to offer life-saving treatment, but failed to save his life.

The UN along with several regional and international rights groups have several times accused Israeli occupation of using lethal force against unarmed Palestinian protesters.
