RAMALLAH, Thursday, December 13, 2018 (WAFA) – Israeli occupation forces on Thursday shot dead a Palestinian man while driving his vehicle, after the forces had raided the industrial zone on the northern section of Al-Bireh city in the occupied West Bank, medical sources said.
Soldiers opened fire at the man and critically injured him, before he was announced dead a couple of minutes later. He was later identified as Hamdan Tawfiq Arda, 58, from the town of Arraba in the northern West Bank.
The soldiers reportedly preventing medics from reaching him to provide him with first aid before he succumbed to his wounds.
