January 01, 2022

Israeli occupation forces shot, critically injured a Palestinian citizen, yesterday morning, on the grounds that he tried to carry out a stabbing attack, near the settlement of "Ariel" built on Palestinian lands near Salfit, in the northern occupied West Bank.

The Palestinian, identified as Ameer Rayan, 36, succumbed to wounds he sustained in the stomach by the Israeli occupation forces after he, allegedly, tried to carry out a stabbing operation.

The occupied West Bank has been witnessing a state of turmoil among the citizens, due to the escalation of crimes and attacks by the occupation soldiers and settlers.

The periodic report issued by the Hamas media office in the occupied West Bank documented (2341) violations perpetrated by the occupation forces and settlers, last November.
