March 01, 2022: Shadi Najm, 18, was killed by Israeli forces as he protested the Israeli military invasion of his home city of Jenin.
He was among hundreds of demonstrators who took to the streets to protest when Israeli forces invaded the city early Tuesday morning.
Medical sources said the soldiers shot Najm in the head before the medics rushed him to a hospital in Jenin.
Najm was admitted to surgery and died from his wounds at the Intensive Care Unit.
The medical sources added that the soldiers also shot many Palestinians with live fire and rubber-coated steel bullets and caused dozens to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.
The head of Urgent Care at Ibn Sina Hospital in Jenin said that Shadi was admitted to surgery before succumbing to his serious wounds.
He added that the Palestinian was shot with a live round in the stem of his brain.
Palestinian national and popular factions declared a general strike in Jenin to mourn the deaths of Shadi Najm in addition to Abdullah al-Hosary, 22, who was killed during a fire exchange with Israeli soldiers in Jenin late on Monday at night.
It is worth mentioning that the soldiers also abducted two former political prisoners in Jenin during extensive and violent invasions and searches of homes.
The killing of the two Palestinians also led to massive protests in Jenin, before the soldiers attacked the protesters with live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades.
Medical sources said several Palestinians were injured, and dozens suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation.
