Attaf SalehSeptember 9, 2018: Attaf Abed-Rabbo Saleh, 32, was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers near the border fence between Gaza and Israel, in the Abu Safiyya area east of Jabalia, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli army claimed the Palestinian was killed by the soldiers while trying to breach the perimeter fence. After killing Attaf, the soldiers abducted three Palestinians from the same area.

The Israeli military claimed that the young men they abducted were carrying knives. They were taken to an interrogation facility where they were subjected to harsh interrogation techniques by the Israeli soldiers.

After shooting Attaf, the soldiers crossed the fence and advanced a few meters into Gaza, before taking him, and the other Palestinians. It’s unclear whether Attaf was still alive when the soldiers dragged his limp body across the rocky ground. The army later issued a statement that Attaf died from his wounds.

Medical sources in Gaza said Palestinian medics tried to reach the seriously wounded young man, but the soldiers opened fire at them, preventing them from even approaching him.
