21-Year-Old Palestinian Killed by Israeli Forces as West Bank Violence Reaches Unprecedented Levels

Tuesday, raed al-naasan was killed when israeli troops entered the palestinian village of al-mughayyir. video footage shows a group of men and teenagers throwing rocks, before two shots ring out and al-naasan is seen running around a corner and collapsing, fatally wounded. the israeli army initially said they used live ammunition in response to a suspect throwing molotov cocktails at them.

Incident happened on tuesday in the palestinian village of al-mughayyir. musa naasan, a 21-year-old, was also fatally shot in the same village on the same day. the un’s envoy to the region has warned that the conflict and military occupation is again reaching a boiling point.

Death of al-naasan is believed to be an example of the excessive use of force by the israel defence forces (idf). eyewitnesses suggest that the shots were fired before the suspect was spotted throwing molotov cocktails, which the israeli army initially claimed. b’tselem is currently probing the death of al-naasan and naasan in light of the growing number of palestinians killed by israeli forces this year in the west bank.
