On Sunday dawn, the Khalil Suleiman governmental hospital in Jenin, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank, said a young man died at dawn from serious wounds he suffered Tuesday, September 6, in Jenin, after Israeli soldiers shot him.
The hospital said the Palestinian, Hamad Mustafa Abu Jilda, 24, from Jenin refugee camp, was shot and seriously injured by the Israeli army fire after dozens of military vehicles invaded Jenin city and Jenin refugee camp.
He was receiving treatment in Jenin and had to undergo several surgeries due to the seriousness of his wounds; he remained in a coma at the Intensive Care Unit until he succumbed to his injuries.
After his death, hundreds of Palestinians marched in the streets of Jenin city, carrying his coffin and chanting for ongoing resistance and steadfastness until liberation and independence, in addition to denouncing the escalating Israeli violations against the Palestinian people.
It is worth mentioning that Abu Jilda was also a former political prisoner who was held by Israel for 2.5 years.
The slain Palestinian is a married father of one child named Hamad, and his wife is pregnant with the second child.
Hamad was named after his uncle, who was killed by the Israeli army in 1992 in Jenin.
