Jerusalem, ALRAY -- Israeli occupation forces (IOF) killed on Tuesday evening Mohammed Yousef Shaaban Alian, 26, from Kalandia refugee camp after they shot him at Bab al-Amud area of Jerusalem.
Local sources in Jerusalem said that Mohammed was killed by the IOF in allegedly stabbing attempt of an Israeli settler.
Israeli police opened fire on Tuesday at a Palestinian near Damascus Gate in occupied Jerusalem and killed him, according to witnesses and the Palestinian Ministry of Health.
The Palestinian Red Crescent said that” Israeli occupation forces prevented their staff from reaching the injured Mohammed Yousef Shaaban Alian in Al-Masarara neighborhood at Bab al-Amud area of occupied Jerusalem.”
Video footage showed that the Israeli occupation forces left the injured Palestinian youth bleeding on the ground, without giving him any treatment in the time that they prevented the Red Crescent ambulance from reaching and providing the treatment.
Eyewitnesses reported that Israeli soldiers opened fire without justification on the young man near Bab al-Amoud, without making any attempt as Israeli allegations.
The witnesses added that a verbal fight between the young man and a settler when Israeli army intervened to protect the settler shot the Palestinian young man and killed him.
Witnesses, however, rejected the Israeli story and said that the Palestinian was not armed and did not attack the Israeli but that an argument occurred between them and when police intervened on behalf of the Israeli, the Palestinian tried to get away and was gunned down.
