Amjad Waleed al-Fayed

May 22, 2022: Amjad Waleed al-Fayed, 17, was killed by Israeli soldiers who invaded the Jenin refugee camp, the northern West Bank governorate of Jenin.

Media sources said several army jeeps invaded the refugee camp, leading to protests before the soldiers fired many live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, and gas bombs.

Medical sources in Jenin said the Israeli soldiers shot the slain teen with nearly eleven live rounds in the upper body.

The sources added that the army also shot and seriously injured another Palestinian, eighteen years of age, before being rushed to a hospital in Jenin.

The Israeli army claimed that the soldiers shot Amjad during exchanges of fire that took place after the army invaded the refugee camp.

It is worth mentioning that the slain Palestinian teen is the nephew of Amjad and Mohammad al-Fayed, who were killed in the Israeli offensive in the Jenin refugee camp in April of the year 2002.

After his death, hundreds of Palestinians held processions in Jenin refugee camp, Jenin city, and surrounding villages and towns before the soldiers fired many live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades.

Also, hundreds of Palestinians headed to Ibn Sina Hospital in Jenin and carried the corpse of the slain teen before marching in various streets in the city and the Jenin refugee camp while chanting for ongoing resistance against the occupation and national unity.

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