QALQILIA, Sunday, June 19, 2022 (WAFA) – A Palestinian worker was shot dead by the Israeli occupation forces today near the Israeli segregation barrier, to the south of Qalqilia city in the occupied West Bank, said the Ministry of Health in a statement.
MoH said Nabil Ahmad Ghanem, 53, a resident of Nablus, was on his way to his workplace inside Israel when soldiers opened gunfire killing him instantly.
Ghanem’s body was taken by the soldiers, said WAFA correspondent, and is currently withheld at an Israeli hospital in Kefar Saba.
Earlier today, a Palestinian worker was injured by Israeli gunfire and another one sustained fractures after being chased by Israeli occupation soldiers near the Israeli segregation barrier west of the town of Tarqumia, in the occupied West Bank province of Hebron.
Palestinian workers in the occupied West Bank usually opt for alternative routes to avoid overcrowding at major Israeli checkpoints in their daily journey to their workplaces, and are often attacked by Israeli soldiers whenever they try to cross the Israeli segregation barrier.
