October 01, 2022: Fayez Khaled Damdoum, 18, was killed by Israeli soldiers in the Al-Ezariyya town, southeast of occupied Jerusalem, in the West Bank.
The Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed his death and said the Israeli soldiers shot the young man with a live round in the neck.
Eyewitnesses said the Israeli soldiers fired live rounds at the slain Palestinian while driving his motorcycle near a local mosque in the town.
Israeli Ynet News claimed that the slain Palestinian “was driving a scooter during an exchange of fire” when the soldiers shot him and alleged that Palestinian protesters also hurled an explosive charge at the army.
Palestinian sources said there were protests in the area, and the soldiers were firing live rounds randomly, killing the young man and seriously wounding another.
The slain Palestinian was not participating in the protests and was passing through the area on his motorcycle.
