April 30, 2022: Yahia Ali Adwan, 27, was killed by Israeli soldiers in Azzoun town, east of Qalqilia, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.
Local sources said dozens of Israeli military vehicles invaded Azzoun, leading to protests before the soldiers fired dozens of live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades.
Medical sources at Darwish Nazzal Hospital in Qalqilia said Yahia was shot with a live round that went through his heart and exited from his back.
Palestinian medics tried to revive the seriously wounded young man before rushing him to the hospital, where he was officially pronounced dead.
The slain Palestinian was also a former political prisoner and has a brother who is imprisoned by Israel at the Negev Detention Camp.
The Israeli army first abducted Yahia in 2010 when he was only fifteen years of age and was imprisoned for ten months.
He was abducted again in 2013 and was released in 2016 after being imprisoned for 41 months.
He was also abducted for the third time in 2019 and was imprisoned for sixteen months, then abducted two more times in 2021.
The total number of years he spent in Israeli prisons and detention centers is seven and a half years.
