Salama Ra’fat Sharay’a

October 03, 2022: Salama Ra’fat Sharay’a, 19, was killed by Israeli soldiers near the Al-Jalazoun refugee camp, north of Ramallah, in the central part of the occupied West Bank. Another Palestinian was killed, and one was injured.

Several armored Israeli military vehicles invaded the area of the Palestinian education Ministry, near the camp, before fatally shooting two young men and moderately wounding another.

The Palestinians were in a car at approximately 3:30 am, heading to work, when the soldiers fired many live rounds at their car, killing Salama, and Khaled Anbar Dabbas, 19, from Al-Jalazoun refugee camp, and severely wounding Bassel Qassem Basbous, 18, from Birzeit, before taking them to an unknown destination.

Eyewitnesses said the two slain Palestinians were still bleeding when the soldiers detained them and refused to allow Palestinian medics to reach them.

The Israeli army claimed it invaded the area “to arrest wanted Palestinians when a car came at them at high speed before the soldiers opened fire at it, killing two and wounding one.”

The army claimed that Palestinians tried to carry out a ramming attack against the soldiers; however, eyewitnesses denied the allegations and said the Palestinians driving the car were surprised by the soldiers invading the area before the army fired several live rounds at them.

The army took the corpses of the two slain Palestinians, and the wounded, to an unknown destination.

National factions and social groups declared a comprehensive strike in Ramallah to mourn the slain Palestinians, while hundreds of Palestinians held protests before the soldiers attacked them with live fire, rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs and concussion grenades.
