The moment fascists pulling out my cousin's body Rami Sabarnah from the bulldozer he drove after they executed him today…
Citing eyewitnesses, WAFA reported that Sabreen was shot after he did not hear the Israeli soldiers’ commands to stop his vehicle, which was being used at the construction site. The witnesses told WAFA that Sabreen did not pose a threat to the soldiers.
The Israeli army said in a statement that the man was shot after he attempted to “run over” soldiers with his vehicle. It added that no soldiers were injured.
