Hussein Hasan Qawareeq

July 29, 2022: Hussein Hasan Qawareeq, 60, died from serious wounds he suffered three days earlier when Israeli soldiers shot him near Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

The soldiers shot Hussein inflicting serious wounds before transferring him to the Israeli Beilinson Medical Center, where he succumbed to his wounds.

The slain man’s brother, Khaled Qawareeq, said the Israeli medical center officially informed the family of Hussein’s death.

The soldiers shot Hussein at the Huwwara military roadblock south of Nablus after the army claimed he did not heed their commands to stop. His family said Hussein had a mental illness.

Also Friday, the Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed that a Palestinian teenage boy, Amjad Nash’at Abu Alia, 16, was killed by Israeli fire in the al-Mughayyir village, northeast of Ramallah, and injured several others.
