On Friday night, an elderly Palestinian has succumbed to serious wounds by Israeli occupation soldiers, last Tuesday near Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank, the Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed.

The Palestinian, Hussein Hasan Qawareeq, 60, was shot by Israeli occupation soldiers and suffered critical injuries before being rushed to a hospital, where he eventually succumbed to his wounds.

Israeli occupation soldiers shot Hussein at the Huwwara military roadblock south of occupied Nablus claiming he did not heed their commands to stop. His family said Hussein had a mental illness.

Also on Friday, the Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed that a Palestinian teenage boy, Amjad Nash’at Abu Alia, 16, was killed by Israeli occupation fire in the Al-Mughayyir village, northeast of occupied Ramallah, and injured several others.
