WEST BANK (Dispatches) – A Palestinian teenager has died of his injuries after being beaten by Zionist troops near the town of Turmus-Ayya northeast of Ramallah, according to several Palestinian news outlets.
The Palestinian health ministry said that Amer Abedalrahim Snobar arrived at the hospital after being "severely beaten on the neck”.
Ahmed al-Bitawi, director of the Palestine Medical Complex, confirmed to Palestinian news outlets on Sunday morning that Snobar died as a result of injuries sustained from an attack by Zionist troops.
"There were visible signs of beatings on Snobar’s neck,” Bitawi said.
The medical centre reported that the injuries to Snobar’s neck were consistent with being beaten with the butts of Zionist troops’ rifles.
In a statement, the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) accused the occupying regime’s troops of "a monstrous act of brutality against a defenseless young man whose only crime was being Palestinian”.
Senior PLO official Hanan Ashrawi said in the statement that Sanouber had been "bludgeoned” to death by Zionist troops.
Members of a medical NGO team told local Palestinian news outlets they tried to perform cardiac resuscitation on Snobar before transferring him to the medical centre.
Zionist troops regularly exercise violence and open fatal fire on Palestinians, accusing them of attempting to carry out stabbing attacks.
Human rights groups have repeatedly criticized the occupying regime for brutally killing Palestinians who did not pose serious threats to Zionists at the scene of the alleged attacks.
