RAMALLAH, Friday, October 07, 2022 (WAFA) – Two Palestinians, including a child, were shot dead this evening in two separate incidents in the occupied West Bank provinces of Ramallah and Qalqilia, according to local and medical sources.
In Ramallah, a Palestinian young man was shot dead and another one injured by Israeli occupation forces during confrontations in the village of Al-Mazra'a al-Qibliya, to the northwest of Ramallah.
Witnesses told WAFA that local Palestinian villagers were countering an attack by Israeli settlers on the village when Israeli occupation soldiers opened gunfire at them, killing a Palestinian young man, Mahdi Ladadweh, by a live shot in his abdomen, and injuring at least another one, the sources added.
The wounded was rushed to a nearby hospital for medical treatment.
Meantime in Qalqilia, north of the West Bank, a 14-year-old Palestinian child died of wounds he had sustained earlier today when Israeli soldiers fired live shots at him near the Israeli segregation barrier, close to the city. The child was identified as Adel Ibrahim Daoud.
