More Palestinians Killed by Israeli Forces

Palestine’s Ma’an news agency said Israeli forces shot the Palestinian, whom they accused of attempting to slam his car into the military forces during a demonstration near the town of Silwad northeast of Ramallah.

Israeli media said the victim, identified as Muhammad Abd al-Rahman Ayyad, 21, was trying to ram his car into the entrance of the illegal Israeli settlement of Ofra located south of Silwad.

Reports, however, said that the Israelis opened fire at the man after his car bumped into a concrete barricade, adding that the Palestinian and his vehicle posed no threat at the time of the shooting.

The attack came hours after Israeli forces opened fire and injured a Palestinian motorist in Qalandiya near Ramallah. Israelis said the man was attempting to attack a military checkpoint there.

Elsewhere in the Gaza Strip, Israeli troops shot and killed a Palestinian protester as clashes erupted during an anti-Tel Aviv demonstration.

The Gazan Health Ministry identified the victim as 20-year-old Mahmud al-Agha. Some 41 Palestinians were also wounded during the scuffles, Press TV reported.

The Friday assaults are the latest in a string of violence in the occupied territories, which has left nearly 130 Palestinians dead since early October.
