PNN/ Ramallah/

On Tuesday afternoon, Nahed Mutair (24) from Qalandia refugee camp north of Jerusalem, was announced dead due to wounds he sustained on March 1.

Mutair was shot in the neck by ISraeli soldiers during clashes that broke out in the camp.

Since then, he was moved to the Ramallah medical complex and then, after his health deteriorated, he was moved to Hadassah hospital in Jerusalem, until he was announced dead today.

The current tension situation is ongoing since October first 2015, due to repetitive Israeli settler attacks on Al-Aqsa mosque, the third holiest place in Islam, and Israeli restrictions over Palestinian entrance, in addition to the Duma arson attack which killed a baby and his parents on July, 31.

Moreover, the IOF has been criticized internationally in recent months for its ‘preemptive shootings’ of Palestinians alleged to be holding knives.

In addition several of the incidents in which the IOF has claimed that they were ‘attacked’ have proven to be false.

Since then, over 180 Palestinians have been killed. More than 15,000 Palestinians have been injured by IOF live ammunition, rubber-coated metal bullets and teargas.

Some 30 settlers were killed on the Israeli side in Palestinian operatives.
