Palestinian succumbs to wounds from Israeli gunfire

RAMALLAH, Tuesday, November 29, 2022 (WAFA) – A Palestinian today succumbed to his wounds sustained earlier by Israeli military gunfire, according to the Civil Affairs Commission.

The Commission announced in a press statement that a resident of the West Bank city of Beitunia city, west of Ramallah, succumbed to his wounds he sustained after being shot by Israeli soldiers at the northern entrance to al-Bireh following a car chase.

The man, whose name was not identified yet by the Commission, was suspected of earlier running over a 20-year-old female Israeli soldier near the illegal colonial settlement of Kochav Ya'akov, north of Jerusalem.

Witnesses said that the chasing police car had opened fire at the tyres of the man’s car, causing him to crash into a metal bar on the side of the road before police got out of their vehicle and continued to shoot at the man.

Police prevented ambulances from reaching the location of the shooting, which was sealed off by the army.

This brings the number of Palestinians killed on Tuesday to five.
