Israeli Army Kills One Palestinian, Injures Another in Jerusalem

Occupied Jerusalem, – Israeli soldiers invaded at dawn Monday the Shu’fat refugee camp, northeast of occupied East Jerusalem, killed one Palestinian and seriously wounded another, after firing many live rounds at their car.

The Israeli army presented two conflicting narratives on the event, one talking about armed confrontations between the soldiers and armed resistance fighters in the refugee camp, and another about an alleged attempted ramming attack, followed by a stabbing attempt, targeting the soldiers, the Palestinian IMEMC News reported.

Medical sources later identified the slain young Palestinian man as Mustafa Nimir, 24, from the Salaam area in Anata town, northeast of occupied Jerusalem.

Palestinian medics rushed to the site, but the soldiers stopped them and prevented them from providing the needed aid to the Palestinians.

The wounded Palestinian has been identified as Ali Nimir, 28; he was shot with a live round in his thigh, and was moved to Hadassah Israeli medical center in Jerusalem.
