October 18, 2019: Ra’ad Majed Mohammad al-Bahri, 25, was shot and killed by Israeli forces at Jabara military roadblock, south of the northern West Bank city of Tulkarem, on Friday evening.
A correspondent with the Palestinian WAFA News Agency confirmed that a young man died after being shot by the Israeli forces at the roadblock after the soldiers shot him.
WAFA also reported that the young man was left to bleed to death when Israeli forces refused to allow the entry of ambulances of the Palestinian Red Crescent Society to the roadblock.
The Israeli army claimed that the “man ran towards the military roadblock, intending to attack the soldiers.”
But a photo released by the military shows the body of Ra’ad lying on the street a wide distance from the checkpoint where the soldiers were stationed. The army also produced no evidence to back their claim that Ra’ad was a threat.
Ra’ad was from Kafr Zibad village, south of Tulkarem. Source: IMEMC
