Mohammad Jibreel

July 10, 2017: Mohammad Ibrahim Jibreel, 25, was killed by Israeli soldiers near Teqoua’ town, southeast of Bethlehem, in the West Bank.

The Israeli army claimed that Mohammad attempted to ram soldiers with his car, while they were exchanging guard duties at a military watchtower, wounding one.

The army added that the car struck a nearby safety rail, before the driver reportedly exited it while carrying a knife, and “attempted to stab the soldiers,” who then shot him dead.

A Palestinian ambulance rushed to the scene, but the soldiers prevented the medics from approaching the young Palestinian man. Mohammad was from Teqoua’ town. Source: IMEMC
