July 23rd, 2021: Mohammad Monir Tamimi, 17, was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers at a protest in Nabi Saleh village, northwest of the central West Bank city of Ramallah.
Tamimi was shot when many soldiers invaded the village, and fired many live rounds, in addition to rubber-coated steel bullets and gas bombs at Palestinians who protested the invasion.
The Palestinian Health Ministry reported that the Israeli soldiers shot Tamimi with live fire in the abdomen, causing serious wounds, before Palestinian medics rushed him to Yasser Arafat Hospital in Salfit, where he was immediately admitted to surgery and was then moved to the Intensive Care Unit, but later succumbed to his wounds.
The killing of Mohammad Tamimi comes just two days after Abdo Yousef Tamimi, 43, from Shu’fat refugee camp, died while in Israeli custody in the al-Maskobiyya detention center and interrogation facility, in Jerusalem. He had been taken into custody for an alleged traffic citation, and other prisoners reported that he was tortured by Israeli guards.
The suspected death-by-torture of Abdo Yousef Tamimi led to large protests in Jerusalem and in several villages in the West Bank, including Nabi Saleh.
