On Wednesday night, the Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed the death of a young Palestinian man who was shot and seriously injured at dawn when the soldiers invaded Nablus city, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank, killed a child, and injured 32 young men.

The Health Ministry said the young man, Mohammad Hisham Abu Keshik, 22, was shot with a live round in the abdomen and remained in critical condition until he succumbed to his wounds.

The Palestinian was shot with an expanding bullet that caused serious damage to his abdominal organs and resulted in excessive bleeding.

His family said Mohammad was far from where the army invaded Nablus and exchanged fire with Palestinian fighters near Joseph’s Tomb, east of the city.

Dozens of Israeli military vehicles, and several bulldozers, invaded Nablus leading to massive protests before the soldiers fired a barrage of live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, and gas bombs randomly.

The Health Ministry said the soldiers shot five Palestinians who were rushed to Rafidia governmental hospital in Nablus and added that one of the wounded suffered a serious gunshot wound to the heart, one was shot with an expanding bullet in the abdomen resulting in serious damage to his intestines that were protruding out of his body, in addition to one who was stuck with a concussion grenade in the head, and another Palestinian who was shot in the arm.

The Palestinian who was shot in the heart, Ahmad Amjad Shehada, only sixteen years of age, succumbed to his serious wounds.

Furthermore, the Palestinian Health Ministry has confirmed, Wednesday night, the death of Mohammad Ahmad Hasan Herzallah, 30, who succumbed to serious wounds he suffered after the soldiers shot him on July 24th when the army also killed two Palestinians.
