Fourth Palestinian killed in Ramallah-district village

RAMALLAH, Tuesday, November 29, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Tuesday evening killed a Palestinian, the fourth in less than 24 hours, in al-Mughayyir village, east of the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah, according to a local activist.

Kathem Muhammad, an anti-colonial-settlement activist, said that Israeli forces barged their way into the village and opened fire towards local young men attempting to block their entry, hitting one by a live round and several others by rubber-coated steel bullets.

Raed Ghazi Na‘ssan, who sustained a critical injury in the chest, later succumbed to his injury in a hospital in Ramallah city.

Na‘ssan was the fifth Palestinian gunned down by Israeli army in the occupied West Bank in less than 24 hours.

Earlier, the army killed Jawad and Thafer Rimawi, 22 and 21, in an overnight raid into Kafr Ein, northwest of Ramallah.

Jawad, a new business administration graduate from Birzeit University, was shot in the pelvis, and his brother Thafer, a fourth-year technology student at the same university, was shot in the chest, the Palestinian health ministry said.

The fourth Palestinian killed today was identified as Mufeed Ikhlil, 44, who died of Israeli military bullet wounds to the head during a predawn raid in Beit Ummar town, north of Hebron.

The father-of-six was indiscriminately gunned down during the confrontations, which lasted several hours into the night. Nine Palestinians were injured, including Khalil, who later succumbed to his wounds.
