Ahmad Izzat Khatatbeh

September 24, 2015:  Ahmad Izzat Khatatbeh, 26, died from serious wounds he suffered when Israeli soldiers shot him at a military roadblock, east of Nablus in northern West Bank, a week earlier.

Medical sources said Khatatbeh was shot with three live rounds in the shoulder, chest, and abdomen at the Beit Forik roadblock.

An Israeli army spokesperson said at the time that a petrol bomb was thrown at an Israeli army patrol in the area, near the illegal settlement of Itamar, with soldiers responding by shooting a Palestinian suspect and detaining another.

His death comes a day after hundreds of mourners marched during the funeral of 18-year-old Hadeel al-Hashlamon, who was shot dead by Israeli forces on Wednesday at a Hebron checkpoint.

Hadeel’s death had followed that of another Palestinian who was killed in a village outside Hebron by an explosive device he intended to throw at a military vehicle, the army said.

Some residents provided a similar account of the man’s death, while Palestinian security officials said the man, whom they identified as Dia al-Talahmeh, 21, had been shot dead by Israeli forces.

Khatatbeh’s death brings the total number of Palestinians killed by Israeli forces since the start of 2015, to twenty-six.
