On Thursday dawn, undercover Israeli soldiers killed a young Palestinian man in the Izbat Shoufa area in Tulkarem, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

Media sources said undercover soldiers infiltrated the Shoufa area and surrounded a home before killing Amir Emad Abu Khadija, 25.

The Israeli army claimed Amir exchanged fire with the undercover officers who attempted to abduct him before they shot him dead.

The army also alleged that Amir was involved in several shooting attacks against Israeli colonizers and soldiers.

The Palestinian Health Ministry said Amir was shot in the head and suffered skull fractures, brain hemorrhaging, and several gunshot wounds to his lower extremities before his body was moved to Thabet Thabet governmental hospital.

The Palestinians in Tulkarem declared a commercial strike to mourn the slain young man.

NOTE: The entire West Bank has been under Israeli occupation since 1967; all its official entrances and exits are controlled by Israeli soldiers, making its Palestinian inhabitants virtual prisoners. Many are families that were ethnically cleansed from Israel during Israel’s founding war (see this and this and this). Israeli forces often invade them; one example is here.

Israel was established in 1947 through a war of ethnic cleansing of the indigenous population, both Muslims and Christians, and it continues to steal other people’s land for illegal colonies known as ‘settlements.’ While Palestinians most often use nonviolent resistance, a small number use armed resistance against the invaders.

Thanks to the pro-Israel lobby in the US, Congress disburses over $20 million per day of Americans’ tax money directly to and/or on behalf of Israel.
