Fifth Palestinian killed by IOF in three days

PNN/ Hebron/
Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) on Thursday morning shot-dead a Palestinian youth, claiming he attempted to stab a soldier at the Beit Eynun junction north of Hebron.

The Red Crescent said that IOF prevented the ambulances from reaching the youth, leaving him to bleed to death.

The Israeli Jpost claimed that the victim, who was identified as Mo’ayad Al-Jabarin (20), has attempted to stab a soldier, adding that none of the soldiers were injured.11228509_1283737011668716_6400002685472704540_n

This is the fifth Palestinian youth to be killed by IOF in two days.

On Tuesday, IOF invaded the town of Beit Jala west of Bethlehem, when a sniper shot dead 21-year-old Srour Abu Srour from Aida refugee camp, located a few hundred meters away from the shooting.

Shortly after, two boys were shot dead at the Beit Eynun junction, aged 19 and 23.

On Wednesday morning, IOF targeted the city of Beit Lahia, northern Gaza strip, with an air raid, killing one man, 31, and injuring three others.

Last Thursday as well, IOF shot dead four Palestinians aged between 16 -18, near the Gush Etzion settlement south of Bethlehem, using the usual allegation of stabbing attempts.

Five of those killed within the past week are from the Kawazba family.

Since the start of October, more than 155 Palestinians have been killed by IOF either extrajudicially or under stabbing or car-ramming pretext.
Some 22 Israeli soldiers were killed in such attacks or by Israeli fire.

The wave of tensions came after the continuous Israeli attacks on Al-Aqsa mosque, and the Israeli apartheid policies against Palestinians.
