Nabil Ahmad Taiseer Ghanem

June 19, 2022: Nabil Ahmad Taiseer Ghanem, 53, was killed by Israeli soldiers near the worker near the illegal Annexation Wall, south of Qalqilia, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

The Palestinian Health Ministry said the soldiers fatally shot Nabil and took his corpse to Meir Medical Center in Kfar Saba after refusing to allow Palestinian medics to reach him.

The Health Ministry added that the soldiers fired live rounds at Palestinian workers while trying to cross the Jaljulia gate of the illegal Annexation Wall, killing Ghanem before taking his corpse away.

The Israeli army claimed the soldiers fired live rounds at Ahmad when he reportedly “attempted to damage a section of the Wall” but failed to provide any details of the allegation.

Eyewitnesses refuted the military’s allegations and said dozens of Palestinian workers were trying to cross the gate of the Annexation Wall when the soldiers fired at them to force them to leave, although they carried permits to cross.

The soldiers also attacked Palestinian workers near the Taybeh military roadblock, southwest of Tulkarem in the northern West Bank, and fired gas bombs at them, causing dozens to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.

On the same day, the soldiers attacked workers and detained thirteen Barta’a towns southwest of Jenin in the northern part of the West Bank.
