Two Palestinians killed during clashes with the IOF in solidarity with Gaza


RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- Palestinian medical sources reported that a Palestinian youth, from city of al-Khalil in the southern the West Bank, was killed during clashes with Israeli soldiers in Be'er Mahjar Western the city.
Eyewitnesses told Quds Press that the Israeli soldiers opened fire towards Hamdi Mohammed Jawad, 22, in Be'er Mahjar area. He was shot with four bullets in the foot, chest and head and is being transferred to al-Khalil Governmental Hospital.
The Israeli occupation forces had hampered the arrival of the ambulance crews by holding them for more than an hour, while the wounded man was still bleeding. Israeli sources claimed, as reported by Yediot Ahronot newspaper, that Hamdi tried to stab one of the Israeli soldiers.
Meanwhile, Palestinian medical sources, in the city of Ramallah, in the central occupied West Bank, said that a Palestinian policeman, Rushdie Mahmoud al-Tamimi (30 years), also died yesterday evening after being wounded on Saturday during clashes in the village of Nabi Saleh in support of the Gaza Strip against the Israeli escalating aggression.
The sources added that Rushdie al-Tamimi had been seriously injured, after being shot by Israeli soldiers with a live bullet in the abdomen while attempting to offer first aid for a Palestinian youth who suffocated as a result of tear gas grenades fired by the IOF on Palestinian demonstrators.
They added that he suffered an internal bleeding that caused his death, despite the efforts by Palestinian medical crews to save his life.
The witnesses confirmed that Israeli troops intentionally shot the Palestinian man, and prevented the ambulances from saving him, leaving him to bleed for a long time.
