On Tuesday dawn, the Palestinian Health Ministry said a young man, who was shot and seriously injured two weeks earlier in the northern West Bank city of Nablus, had succumbed to his wounds.

The Health Ministry officially identified the young man as Mohammad Marzouq Arayshy, 25, and said the young man remained in critical condition at the Intensive Care Unit

The funeral procession started in front of Rafidia Hospital in Nablus, before the Palestinians marched to Nablus’s Old City to his home, before heading to the Shuhada graveyard.

It is worth mentioning that Mohammad was seriously injured on August 9th, 2022, when the Israeli army initiated a massive offensive into Nablus, killing three Palestinians and wounding at least 40.

It is worth mentioning that the Israeli army fired many live rounds at Palestinian ambulances, prevented many medics from entering the areas it was invading, and later published a propaganda picture claiming the ambulance “was being used to shelter those throwing stones at the soldiers.”

However, a video from the scene shows the medics and a few Palestinians trying to get the seriously wounded young man into the ambulance so that it can speed up to the hospital.

Due to ongoing protests, the medics loaded the seriously wounded Palestinian as fast as possible, and the soldiers were still firing at the protesters.

IMEMC, the International Middle East Media Center, is a media center developed in collaboration between Palestinian and International journalists to provide independent media coverage of Israel-Palestine. It was founded by the Palestinian Centre for Rapprochement between People in 2003. In 2021, IMEMC became a project of the American nonprofit organization If Americans Knew.
