Israeli forces shoot dead Palestinian youth in West Bank

Israeli forces have fatally shot a Palestinian youth at a makeshift checkpoint in the West Bank.

As Reported by Qods News Agency (Qodsna) The incident took place just north of the city of Jericho early on Sunday. 


The Palestinian Health Ministry identified the victim as Salameh Salah Kaabneh, 22.


Wafa news agency reported that Kaabneh was killed “in mysterious circumstances.”


Israeli police, however, claimed in a statement the “masked” Palestinian, who was driving a car, had attempted to run through the checkpoint and not heeded an officer’s order to stop.


“As a result of the gunfire, the car stopped and its Palestinian motorist, a resident of one of the villages nearby, was hit and pronounced dead,” it added.


The Israeli military regularly opens fatal fire on Palestinians, accusing them of seeking to attack its personnel.


Human rights groups have repeatedly slammed the Tel Aviv regime for its shoot-to-kill policy as a large number of the Palestinians killed did not pose any serious threat to Israelis.


Israeli troops have on numerous occasions been caught on camera brutally killing Palestinians, with the videos going viral online and sparking condemnations of the regime’s militarism.
