Man with disability dies of wounds sustained by occupation forces months ago

RAMALLAH, Friday, December 11, 2020 (WAFA) – A Palestinian man with hearing disability died today of wounds he had sustained last August when Israeli occupation forces fired live gunshots at him at Qalandia checkpoint, north of occupied Jerusalem, according to his family.

Abdul-Nasser Walid Halaweh, 56 years old from the occupied West Bank city of Nablus, was shot and injured by Israeli troops on August 16 while attempting to cross the said checkpoint.

His sister told WAFA that on that day, Israeli occupation soldiers manning the checkpoint shouted at him to stop while trying to cross the checkpoint, but due to his hearing disability he did not hear the soldiers, who were quick to open gunfire at him in the feet causing him serious fragmentations in the bones.

He was announced dead today due to complications resulting from his wounds.
