February 14, 2023: Mahmoud Majed Al-Ayedi, 17, was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers during an Israeli military invasion of the Al-Far’a refugee camp south of Tubas, in the northeastern West Bank, where the boy lived.
The Palestinian Health Ministry has confirmed the death of the teenage boy from serious wounds he suffered at dawn when Israeli soldiers shot and seriously injured him in the Al-Far’a refugee camp south of Tubas, in the northeastern West Bank.
The Health Ministry said Mahmoud Majed Al-Ayedi, 17, was seriously injured when the soldiers shot him with a live round in the head and succumbed to his wounds at the Tubas Turkish Governmental Hospital.
His death brings the number of Palestinians killed by Israeli fire this year to 47, including four who the illegal paramilitary colonizers killed; among the slain Palestinians are eleven children and one woman.
The soldiers fired many live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades at Palestinians who protested the invasion.
The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) said the soldiers shot Mahmoud Majed Al-Ayedi with a live round in the head, and he was rushed to Tubas Turkish Governmental Hospital in a very serious condition.
The head of Tuba’s office of the Palestinian Prisoners’ Society (PPS) said the soldiers also abducted Ahmad Raja Al-Khatib, 45, after storming and ransacking his home, and added that a military dog mauled Ahmad’s son, Raja, in the leg.
Media sources said that Palestinian resistance fighters exchanged fire with the soldiers invading the refugee camp.
On Monday evening, the soldiers abducted a child, Yousef Ismael Abu Al-Hawa, 15 years of age, in the Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem and closed all gates of the holy site.
