A 21-year injured Palestinian succumbed to critical wounds Sunday, which he sustained after being shot by Israeli forces at the entrance of Betlehem refugee camp in early August.

Ra’ed al-Salhi, 21, was shot numerous times by Israeli soldiers in the abdomen, kidney, and thigh areas and was left to bleed helplessly on the ground for hours before being transferred to hospital.

Al-Salhi was taken to Hadasa Medical Center in a critical condition, where he remained on ventilator support until the time of his death.

Issa Qaraqi, head of the Detainees Affairs Commission, held Israel fully responsible for the death of al-Salhi, accusing [the Israeli] occupation of executing al-Salhi by live fire at point blank.
