A Palestinian man identified as Hamdi Shaker Abu Dayyeh, 40, was shot and killed today by Israeli soldiers near Hebron, according to the Ministry of Health and Palestinian security sources.
Local sources said that Israeli occupation soldiers “IOS” manning a checkpoint at the northern entrance to the town of Halhoul, north of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, opened fire at a Palestinian man, critically injuring him before he was pronounced dead.
