Gaza,(DRAH.ps)-- A Palestinian young man with special needs was fatally shot by the Israeli occupation army at daybreak Tuesday after the latter rolled into Tulkarem province, in the northern West Bank, and violently attacked Palestinian protesters.
Local sources said Mohamed Hebali, aged 22, was killed shortly after Israeli soldiers stormed Tulkarem and randomly unleashed spates of bullet fire.
Mohamed was hit with bullets in his chest and head. He was rushed to the Thabet Thabet Hospital, where he was pronounced dead moments later.
Another young man was injured with Israeli bullet fire in violent clashes that flared up in the area.
Full-armed Israeli patrols targeted anti-occupation protesters with live rounds, teargas, and rubber bullets.
At the same time, Israeli soldiers wreaked havoc on civilian homes and vandalized Palestinian property and furniture.
The Israeli military has stepped up assaults on Tulkarem province in the hunt for the anti-occupation attacker Ashraf Na’luwa.
Dozens of Palestinians were injured on Monday when the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) attacked peaceful protesters on northern Gaza coast.
The Palestinian Red Crescent Society said that 47 Palestinians were injured in the protests.
The PIC reporter said that the IOF heavily fired live ammunition and teargas canisters at the Palestinian protesters who launched balloons attached to portraits of the Great March of Return martyrs.
Dozens of Palestinian fishing boats took part in the protests and marched near the sea border, north of the Gaza Strip.
