27-year-old Palestinian shot useless by Israeli settlers in West Financial institution, Palestinian officers say
A Palestinian man was shot useless by an Israeli settler within the West Financial institution on Saturday, the Palestinian Well being Ministry mentioned, naming him as 27-year-old Mithqal Suleiman Abdel Halim Rayan.
The ministry mentioned he was shot within the head at Qarawat Bani Hassan, west of Salfit, within the northern occupied West Financial institution.
Witnesses informed the official Palestinian information company WAFA that settlers had attacked a gaggle of Palestinians and shot them. They mentioned Rayan was badly injured and died shortly after.
The Palestinian Ministry of Overseas Affairs and Expatriates blamed the homicide on “terrorist settler militias”.
A neighborhood settler chief mentioned the settler who shot Rayan had “acted appropriately”.
“He defended his life from a rioting mob and rampaging terrorists,” mentioned Yossi Dagan, head of the Shomron Regional Council, which represents Jewish settlers within the space.
The assassination passed off on land Israel captured from Jordan in 1967. Worldwide regulation makes it unlawful for Israeli settlers to dwell there.
Dagan mentioned: “We’ll proceed to construct and make the desert bloom in our nation in Jerusalem, in Tel Aviv, within the Negev, within the Galilee and in Judea and Samaria,” the Biblical names for the West Financial institution.
