Days of Palestine – Bethlehem
The Israeli occupation forces shot dead a Palestinian young man today south of the city of Bethlehem, in the occupied West Bank, according to local sources.
Soldiers at the main junction outside the illegal settlement bloc of Gush Etzion reportedly south of Bethlehem, shot the young man while he was in the area, seriously wounding him, leaving him to bleed on the ground until he was martyred.
Shortly following the deadly incident, the occupation forces blocked the main Bethlehem-Hebron street to the Palestinian traffic, causing a traffic jam.
Last week, the boy, Atallah Muhammad Rayan (17 years), from Qarawat Bani Hassan, was killed by bullets from the occupation soldiers near the town of Salfit.
