On Wednesday, April 13, 2022, a 14-year-old Palestinian was shot and killed by Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) during violent clashes that erupted near the West Bank town of Husan just south of Bethlehem.
The Palestinian Health Ministry identified the victim as Qusai Fuad Hamamra, a resident of Husan.
Hamamra was left bleeding for long hours without medical aid till breathing his last. Israeli forces later seized his body.
The clashes broke out at the entrance to Husan town after being violently stormed by IOF troops amid heavy fire of tear-gas and sound bombs.
Hamamra is the second Palestinian killed on Wednesday by Israeli forces.
On Wednesday morning, a 34-year-old Palestinian lawyer was killed by Israeli gunfire in Nablus.
Since the start of the year, 41 Palestinians have been killed, 13 of them in April.
Tension has been rising high in the region after Israeli Prime Minister Naftali decided to grant “all security forces full freedom” to advance assaults on Palestinians.
