A Palestinian driver was shot dead today by Israeli occupation forces in the village of Silwad, to the northeast of Ramallah in the occupied West Bank, according to local sources.

Isreali soldiers manning a checkpoint opened gunfire at the driver while attempting to pass through the checkpoint, critically injuring him before he succumbed to his wounds a couple of minutes later.

According to TRT, the driver was identified as Mohammed Rawhy Hammad.

Clashes erupted with the Israeli occupation forces in the village in the aftermath of the deadly incident. Israeli soldiers fire tear gas at protesters causing many cases of suffocation from gas inhalation.
