IOF murder young Palestinian in West Bank
The Israeli occupation forces kill a young Palestinian man in the occupied West Bank and injured dozens of Palestinian civilians during confrontations.
The Israeli occupation murdered on Friday a young Palestinian man in Al-Khalil, occupied West Bank, the Palestinian health ministry said.
Ahmad Al-Atrash, 29, was shot dead with live ammunition, according to the MoH, and it was revealed by the Palestinian WAFA agency that he is a former prisoner who had spent six years in the Israeli occupation's prisons.
Confrontations had taken place between Palestinians and the Israeli occupation forces in the center of Al-Khalil, with dozens of Palestinians wounded at the hands of the IOF.
In light of Israeli violence and violations, the Palestinian Red Crescent said it treated 70 people injured in Nablus at the hands of the IOF during confrontations that took place over their raiding of the city.

The Israeli occupation had raided Jenin, another city in the occupied West Bank, on Thursday, and the IOF killed two Palestinians during the raid.
According to local media, the martyrs that were shot dead by the IOF during the storming of the Jenin camp were identified as 17-year-old Sanad Abu Atiya and Yazeed Al-Saadi.
The latest period of Israeli violence comes just days before the holy month of Ramadan, as the Muslim population of Palestine is anticipating its holiest month. The Israeli occupation is also imposing more restrictions on entry to the Al-Aqsa mosque, the third holiest site in Islam.
The Israeli occupation has been displacing Palestinians all over the occupied West Bank, building settlements across the region in violation of international law.
The Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics revealed on Wednesday that "Israel" was exploiting 76% of the area classified as "C" of the West Bank lands under its control.
The agency released a statement on the 46th anniversary of Land Day, as its events date back to 1976, when "Israel" confiscated vast areas of Palestinian land, which led to the outbreak of demonstrations that resulted in deaths and injuries.
