IOF troops kill Palestinian young man en route from his work
The IOF troops killed on Wednesday evening a Palestinian young man called Mohamed Aslamiya, 23, and wounded another en route from their work to the Idna town, west of Al-Khalil city in the West Bank.
Palestinian eyewitnesses told the PIC reporter, that Israeli soldiers intercepted the young man and shot him dead, adding that a large number of IOF soldiers stormed the Idna town amid intensive and random gunfire imposing a curfew and announcing the area as a closed military area.
Meanwhile, in the West Bank a Palestinian old woman died of heart attack when IOF soldiers broke into her home in a pre-dawn raid on Thursday, her relatives said.
They said that Zakia Al-Amori was terrified due to the IOF savage storming of her home to capture her nephew who is wanted by those forces.
Palestinian medics arrived to her home in Balata refugee camp east of Nablus city and tried to save her life but to no avail, the relatives said.
In another context, Dr. Muawya Hassanain, the director-general of ambulance and emergency at the health ministry in Gaza, reported that the medical crews recovered a body of Palestinian citizen called Naim Hamdiya, 45, from the ruins of a house in Jabalia in northern Gaza Strip.
Dr. Hassanain explained that the victim disappeared in the second day of the Israeli bloody incursion in Jabalia and then was found buried under the rubble, adding that with this new death, the number of Israel”s holocaust victims rose to 127 Palestinians including at least 25 minors.
In a statement received by the PIC, Riyadh Al-Ashqar, the director of the information office at the ministry of detainees and ex-detainees strongly denounced the IOA for releasing an Israeli settler who killed a Palestinian child called Mohamed Shreiteh, 15, in the West Bank two days ago, charging that Israel encourages its settlers to murder Palestinians.
Ashqar underlined that while the IOA refuses to release thousands of Palestinian prisoners especially those who spent dozens of years in Israeli jails and some of them suffer from various diseases at the pretext that their hands were stained with blood, it releases an Israel settler that killed in broad daylight a Palestinian child.
The ministry appealed to human rights organizations especially those concerned with children”s rights to raise their voices, which have remained silent for a long time, and start to work on stopping the Israeli crimes and arbitrary acts against the Palestinian children, pointing out that the IOA detains in its jails more than 350 Palestinian children.
