July 12, 2017: Aws Mohammad Salama, 17, was killed by Israeli soldiers who invaded Jenin refugee camp, in the northern West Bank governorate of Jenin, and fired dozens of live rounds and gas bombs, during clashes that took place following the invasion.

The soldiers also shot Sa’ad Hasan Salah, 21, from Jenin refugee camp, with three live rounds, including one in the head, before he succumbed to his wounds on the operating table in a hospital in Jenin.

The Israeli army claimed that many Palestinian protesters hurled homemade explosives and Molotov cocktail on the military vehicles.

A third Palestinian, identified as Odai Nizar Abu Na’sa, 19, was seriously injured, after the soldiers shot him with an expanding bullet in his leg. Aws was from Jenin refugee camp.

The Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) issued a statement strongly condemning the excessive use of force by the Israeli military, and affirming that the two Palestinians were not part of any clashes which broke out between the Palestinian civilians and Israeli soldiers. Source: IMEMC
