A young Palestinian man succumbed on Saturday to the wounds he sustained by Israeli army gunfire near Hebron (Al-Khalil).

The Palestinian Ministry of Health has confirmed the tragic death of 22-year-old Mohammad Hussein Masalma, who was shot by Israeli occupation forces at the entrance of the Al-Fawwar refugee camp, located south of Hebron.

According to the Palestinian news agency WAFA, Israeli forces stationed at the camp entrance and opened fire intensively at Masalma’s car, severely injuring him. 

Eyewitnesses reported that Masalma was left bleeding at the entrance of the camp.

The Israeli occupation military claimed that the young man was involved in a car-ramming attack that targeted Israeli occupation soldiers manning a checkpoint.

Masalma was initially rushed to hospital in critical condition, where efforts to save his life proved unsuccessful.

In parallel with the war in the Gaza Strip, the Israeli army escalated its incursions into cities, towns and refugee camps in the West Bank.
