Palestinian murdered by IOF following alleged shooting attack at checkpoint north of Jerusalem

A young Palestinian was left to bleed to death following a shooting attack at Qalandia military checkpoint, north of Jerusalem, according to witnesses and Israeli reports.

Reports said a Palestinian armed with a machine gun opened fire at Israeli soldiers stationed at Qalandia checkpoint, a major crossing from the West Bank into occupied East Jerusalem, lightly injuring an Israeli guard in the hand before he was shot and fatally injured.

Witnesses said the Palestinian, who was identified as Ishaq Hamdi Ajlouni, 17, from the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Kufr Aqab, which falls beyond Israel’s wall that segregates Jerusalem from its West Bank environs, was left bleeding on the ground for hours until he was declared dead.

With this death, the Israeli army killed or caused the death of 179 Palestinians in the occupied territories since the start of the year.
