April 28, 2015: Mohammad Murad Yahia, 21, was killed by Israeli soldiers near the northern West Bank city of Jenin.
Palestinian medical sources have reported that Mohammad initially suffered a critical injury and succumbed to his wounds in a hospital in the northern West Bank city of Nablus.
Eyewitnesses said Israeli soldiers shot the young man, while standing near the Annexation Wall section in al-‘Arqa village, without any provocation or warning.
Resident ‘Asef Wakid said Yahia and his cousins, Ahmad, and Emad, were in their families’ orchards, close to an illegal Israeli colony, when the soldiers shot and killed Yahia in cold blood.
Wakid stated that a soldier fired one round at Yahia causing a severe injury, before the army abducted his cousins Ayman and Emad.
The Palestinians were walking and picnicking in their orchard with the soldiers killed Yahia, eyewitnesses confirmed.
Head of the Emergency Unit of the Red Crescent Society in Jenin Mahmoud Sa’di said the soldiers shot Mohammad in an orchard near a section of the Annexation Wall that isolated the Palestinians from their lands.
He added that Yahia was moved to the Khalil Suleiman Governmental Hospital, in Jenin, suffering a critical injury.
In addition, soldiers detained two brothers, identified as Ayman and Emad Mahmoud Saleh, while in their family’s land, isolated by the Annexation Wall.
In related news, soldiers abducted a Palestinian child in Wad al-Jouz neighborhood, in occupied East Jerusalem, after invading it, and clashing with local youths.
The soldiers also fired rubber-coated metal bullets and gas bombs, causing several residents to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation. Mohammad was from al-‘Arqa village, near the northern West Bank city of Jenin. Source: IMEMC
