One Palestinian was killed and others injured today in an Israeli crackdown at locals, some of whom were participating in marches commemorating the 15th anniversary for the death of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.
In Arroub refugee camp, in the south of the West Bank, Israeli soldiers attacked locals using live ammunition and teargas, said witnesses.
Omar Badawi was injured in the belly from a live bullet and was taken by residents to a local clinic after soldiers prevented Red Crescent ambulances from reaching him. He was announced to be succumbed to his wounds shortly thereafter.
A video footage shows Badawi unarmed and posing no threat to the heavily armed Israelis. Badawi appears asking the Israelis to pass before being shot in front of his house.
In the same vein, the Red Crescent said its crews transferred a youth from Fuwwar refugee camp, in the south of the West Bank, to hospital in Hebron after he was shot in the leg by a live bullet fired by Israeli soldiers.
Witnesses said the soldiers opened fire at the students who were commemorating Arafat’s death anniversary injuring one.
