Palestinian killed in cold blood

Monday January 03, 2011 07:53:27 AM, Agencies

Ramallah/Gaza City: Israeli forces on Sunday shot dead a Palestinian man at a checkpoint near the West Bank city of Nablus. The latest killing followed the death of Jawaher Abu Rahmeh a day earlier from inhaling a massive dose of tear gas fired by Israeli forces on protesters.

Paramedics from the Palestinian Red Crescent Society said that 24-year-old Ahmed Mohammed Maslamani of the village of Toubas died of his wounds after he was critically injured by Israeli soldiers manning the Bekaot checkpoint to the east of Nablus. "He was shot in many parts of his body,” the paramedics said.

They added that the body was handed over to them at the checkpoint and that the man's ID card and cellular phone were confiscated by the soldiers.

"I was standing on the eastern side of the roadblock when I suddenly heard someone screaming. I turned around and saw a young man in a brown shirt and jeans raising his hands. Shortly afterward, two soldiers fired at him from three meters away and he fell down,” Palestinian Hatim Al-Froukh said.

Another Palestinian witness said that Maslamani, who was traveling to Jericho City where he works, had crossed the roadblock with a Coca-Cola can in his hand. "He was unarmed. When he crossed the checkpoint, he passed by a woman soldier who started yelling at him. The soldiers immediately fired at him, intensively, and he died on the spot," the witness said.
