Abdullah al-Hosary

February 28, 2022: Abdullah al-Hosary, 22, was shot in the chest and killed by Israeli forces during an Israeli invasion of the Jenin refugee camp in the northern West Bank city of Jenin.

Abdullah was a resistance fighter with the al-Quds Brigades and was among a group of resistance fighters who exchanged fire with the invading Israeli soldiers. Two other fighters were seriously wounded by Israeli gunfire.

Media sources in Jenin said the soldiers surrounded the area of Ibn Sina Hospital after deploying undercover units driving civilian cars.

They added that Israeli military sharpshooters also infiltrated several buildings and began using the rooftops as firing posts.

The soldiers then opened fire at the Palestinian fighters, leading to an exchange of fire in which the army killed a former political prisoner, Abdullah al-Hosary, 22.

Palestinian medical sources said Abdullah was shot in the chest and died from his wounds.

The Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad, said Abdullah was one of its members.

They added that the soldiers seriously injured two other Palestinians after shooting one with a live round in the head and the other in the abdomen.

During the invasion, the soldiers stormed the home of Jamal Abu al-Haija and ransacked the property before abducting his son, Emad.

Abdullah was from the Jenin refugee camp, in the northern part of the West Bank. Source: IMEMC
