Eyewitnesses told WAFA that Israeli forces shot the man after they verbally clashed with him. They reportedly forced him out of his vehicle before shooting him at point-blank.
With the killing of Kahla, the number of Palestinians killed by Israeli forces has risen to 13 since the beginning of 2023, including three children.
