Israeli forces kill young Palestinian at a checkpoint

PressTV - Israeli forces kill young Palestinian:

"Ibrahim Husseini, Press TV, Ramallah

Israeli occupation forces shot and killed a Palestinian man near the northern West Bank city of Nablus. Ahmed Mahmoud Maslamni Daragmeh was shot in the chest and died at the scene.
The incident took place at the hamra checkpoint after Israeli soldiers refused to let him pass through the checkpoint. Ahmed was killed almost instantly and the checkpoint was closed temporarily after the incident.

The Israeli army claimed that Ahmed was poised to stab a soldier, but he was found to have been holding a glass bottle and no knife or weapon was found.
Later the Israeli army changed its account of the event and said Ahmed did not obey soldiers' order to stop.

The killing comes one day after a Palestinian woman named Jawaher Abu Rahma died, a day after she was tear-gassed during a protest in the village of Bilin west of Ramallah.

Abu Rahmeh took part in a non violent march against the occupation and the separation wall in the west bank.

The doctor who treated Abu Rahmeh in Ramallah, said she died of respiratory failure and then cardiac arrest caused by tear-gas inhalation.
Witnesses say that the tear gas used by the Israeli army is more of a poison gas and many people die as a result.
Over 85 per cent of the Israeli separation wall will have been built inside the West Bank, taking land from villages like Bilin and Nilin. Palestinians say the planned barrier will undermine their future state. The barrier in some places has cuts off access to schools and medical treatment and divides families.

Today the city of Toubas bid farewell to one of its men, Ahmed Maslamani a 25-year-old Palestinan man on his way to work. This is the second Palestinian who was killed by the Israeli occupation forces in less than 48 hours.
