Palestinian shot dead in Shufat as Jerusalem clashes continue

Palestinian Ahmad Salah, 24, was shot dead in Shufat Refugee Camp in occupied East Jerusalem overnight Friday, after clashes broke out with Israeli forces near an Israeli checkpoint at the camp entrance.

A spokesman for the Fatah movement in Shufat, Thaer al-Fasfous, told Ma'an that "fierce clashes resumed overnight near the Shufat checkpoint, during which Israeli occupation forces fired live ammunition directly at the young men from close range." Several young men were injured including two in serious condition, al-Fasfous said, adding that an injured young man was detained after Israeli paramedics gave him first aid.

Locals told Ma'an that Israeli forces prevented them from reaching Salah after he was shot.

The young man was "left on the ground and bleeding to death" before Israeli forces took his body, which was eventually taken to Hadassah hospital in Jerusalem, locals said.

Salah's body was delivered by Israeli authorities Saturday morning to his family in Shufat Refugee Camp. more
