WEST BANK (Dispatches) –
Zionist troops have killed a 53-year-old Palestinian worker near the separation wall in Qalqilya city in the north of the occupied West Bank, according to Palestinian news agency Wafa.
The victim, identified as Nabil Ahmed Ghanem by the Palestinian health ministry, was shot dead on Sunday near the village of Jaljulia. He was a resident of the northern West Bank city of Nablus.
According to the Palestinian Health Ministry, Ghanem was on his way to work when Zionist troops opened gunfire on the Palestinian man, killing him instantly.
Ghanem’s body is currently withheld at a hospital in Kefar Saba, after the regime’s forces took it, Wafa added.
Earlier in the day, a Palestinian worker was injured by Zionist troops’ gunfire, and another sustained fractures after being chased by the regime’s troops near the separation wall, west of the village of Tarqumiya, in the southern occupied West Bank city of Al-Khalil.
Palestinian workers in the West Bank usually opt for alternative routes to avoid overcrowding at major checkpoints in their daily journey to their workplace and are often attacked by Zionist troops whenever they try to cross the separation wall.
The Zionist regime has escalated its deadly attacks against Palestinians in recent months, especially since the beginning of Ramadan, and sustained the violence throughout the holy fasting month, provoking protests throughout the occupied territories.
The Zionist regime has also ramped up its violent attacks on Palestinian worshipers in the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in the occupied Old City of Al-Quds in recent months.
Early Sunday, dozens of extremist settlers, stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, a Palestinian source confirmed.
A statement by the Islamic Awqaf and Al-Aqsa Affairs said that the raid was carried out through al-Magharebah Gate under the heavy protection of Zionist troops.
A Wafa correspondent reported that dozens of settlers stormed the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, carried out provocative tours and performed rituals in its courtyards.
