Soheib Mashahra

April 19, 2017: Soheib Mousa Mashahra, 21, was killed by Israeli army fire after his car crashed into the rear of an Israeli bus near Etzion junction, south of Bethlehem in the West Bank.

The Israeli army claims the young man carried out a “deliberate ramming attack.”

The soldiers fatally shot the young Palestinian man while he was still behind the driver’s wheel, after claiming “they were certain the incident was a deliberate attack,” and that the soldiers later “found a knife inside the car.”

Photographs and videos from the scene, and the fact that his car crashed into the rear of the bus, indicate a normal traffic accident.

Israeli daily Haaretz said an Israeli man, 60, suffered a mild-to-moderate head wound, and was moved to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem. Soheib was from Sawahra town near Jerusalem. Source: IMEMC
