Ahmad Younes Al-Atrash, 29, was killed after being shot by Israeli soldiers at Shalala Street in the center of Hebron city.

He was taking part in a weekly protest against Israeli colonization when he was shot and critically injured by Israeli soldiers. Al-Atrash was rushed to a nearby hospital for medical treatment, where he succumbed to his wounds.
