Palestinian shot dead by Israeli occupation forces near Ramallah

A Palestinian identified as Bilal Ibrahim Qadah, 33, from the village of Shuqba, near Ramallah, was shot and killed today by Israeli occupation forces near the village of Deir Natham, west of Ramallah, as confirmed by the Ministry of Health.

It said it was informed by the Civil Affairs Authority that Qadah was killed near an Israeli army checkpoint located at the southern entrance to Deir Nitham.

Witnesses said the Israeli forces prevented Red Crescent ambulances from reaching him after he was shot and kept him bleeding on the ground.

He is married with three children.

Israeli reports claimed Qadah was trying to throw an explosive device when he was shot, which is an excuse the Israeli army often gives when shooting Palestinians.
