Palestinian dies of wounds sustained by Israeli soldiers


RAMALLAH, Saturday, April 27, 2019 (WAFA) – A Palestinian youth identified as Omar Awni Younes, 20, died on Saturday evening at Beilinson Hospital in Israel from wounds he sustained last week, when he was shot and critically injured by Israeli forces near Nablus city in the occupied West Bank, the Ministry of Health said.

Younes, who comes from the village of Sanniriya in the occupied West Bank, was shot dead by Israeli soldiers on April 20 at Za’tara military checkpoint, on Nablus-Ramallah road, after the soldiers claimed he had attempted to stab some of them with a knife.

He had been receiving medical treatment at the said hospital until he was announced dead of his critical wounds today.

Israeli occupation forces have a long record of executing Palestinian civilians and going unpunished using the pretext of "failed stabbing attack".
