Mohammad Nasser Abu Assab

Mohammad Abu AssabAugust 19, 2023: Mohammad Nasser Daoud Abu Assab, 19, died of wounds sustained three days earlier when he was shot by Israeli soldiers in Balata refugee camp, east of Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

Palestinian medical sources said that on Wednesday, August 16, Israeli soldiers shot the young man, Mohammad Nasser Daoud Abu Assab, 19, with many live rounds, including to the head, chest, and abdomen, before Palestinian medics rushed him to the an-Najah Hospital in Nablus, where he succumbed to his serious wounds three days later.

The Palestinian was shot after undercover Israeli soldiers infiltrated the refugee camp and surrounded a home, leading to protests and an exchange of fire with Palestinian fighters.

During the invasion, the soldiers stormed and ransacked many homes and buildings and detonated the home of Abdullah Abu Shallal, in addition to the headquarters of the Fateh movement.

At the time, the soldiers shot at least three other Palestinians with live fire, including one whom the soldiers abducted, and caused more than 85 Palestinians to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.

Mohammad was from Balata camp, near Nablus in the northern West Bank. Source: IMEMC
