Israelis kill young Palestinian in West Bank

The Israeli regime’s armed forces have shot dead a 20-year-old Palestinian militant during a raid on the Jenin refugee camp in the occupied West Bank.

The Israeli military said on Tuesday its troops opened fire as the man tried to flee arrest. The young man died of his wounds in an Israeli hospital, a military statement said.

A Palestinian security source identified the victim as Islam al-Tubasi. The Islamic Jihad issued a statement mourning Tubasi as one of its members.

He is the fourth Palestinian killed in the West Bank since Israel and Palestinians resumed the so-called peace talks in July.

Regular meetings between negotiators from both sides as part of US-brokered peace talks have continued despite a similar incident in late August at another refugee camp where Israeli military forces martyred three Palestinian men.

The negotiations resumed after a three-year stalemate over illegal Israeli settlement expansion in the West Bank and East al-Quds, areas Israel usurped in 1967 and where the Palestinians hope to set up an independent state.

More than half a million Israelis live in over 120 illegal settlements built since Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and East al-Quds in 1967.

The United Nations and most countries regard the Israeli settlements as illegal because the territories were captured by Israel in a war in 1967 and are hence subject to the Geneva Conventions, which forbids construction on occupied lands.
