Ghazi Yousef Shehab

May 11, 2023: Ghazi Yousef Shehab (Fahmawi), 66, was killed by Israeli soldiers in Nur Shams refugee camp, in Tulkarem, in the northwestern West Bank.

The Palestinian Health Ministry said the soldiers shot and seriously injured Ghazi before the medics rushed him to a hospital in Tulkarem, but he succumbed to his wounds.

Palestine TV said the Palestinian man was shot at dawn when the soldiers invaded the refugee camp and fired many live rounds at random.

It added that the soldiers shot the man in the abdomen before that exited through his back, resulting in serious wounds and organ damage, before he was rushed to Thabet Thabet Hospital in Tulkarem and later moved him to Rafidia Hospital in Nablus. He died just two hours after surgery.

Ghazi is a retired Palestinian security officer and was on her way to his work across the green light when the soldiers shot him.

Earlier the same day, the Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed the death of Aws Jamal Hamamda Kamil, 30, who was shot and seriously injured a day earlier when the army invaded Qabatia town, south of Jenin, in the northern West Bank.

In the Gaza Strip, Israeli missiles killed eight Palestinians and injured many others, some seriously, in the continued bombing of the Gaza Strip.

It is worth mentioning that, on May 6,  the soldiers killed two Palestinians, Samer Salah Shafe’ey, 22, after shooting him with live rounds in the neck, chest, and abdomen, and Hamza Jamil Kharyoush, 22, after shooting him in the chest, abdomen, and left leg, in Tulkarem refugee camp.
