Zionist forces kill another Palestinian near al-Quds after ‘shooting’

Zionist forces have killed another Palestinian claiming he was trying to attack troopers at a West Bank checkpoint.

Udai Tamimi was gunned down during a reported firefight with the forces at the entrance of the West Bank settlement of Maale Adumim in the east of the holy occupied city of al-Quds on Wednesday.

Tamimi “fired at the entrance of Maale Adumim towards security guards wounding one of them in the hand before being neutralized by the other guards,” the Israeli police alleged in a statement.

He was wanted by the Israeli military after killing an Israeli soldier, identified as Noa Lazar, at a checkpoint near the Shuafat Palestinian refugee camp in al-Quds on Oct. 8.

The 10-day search for Tamimi witnessed the Israeli military shutting down the entrances to the camp and laying siege that paralyzed healthcare services and schools there.

 

 

The Israeli regime has intensified its deadly crackdown on Palestinians in the occupied territories. More than 170 Palestinians have been killed in Israeli attacks so far this year.

The regime occupied the West Bank during a heavily-Western-backed war in 1967.

Ever since it has dotted the territory with hundreds of illegal settlements that have come to house more than 600,000 Israeli settlers.

 

 

All Israeli settlements are illegal under international law. The UN Security Council has condemned Israel’s settlement activities in the occupied territories in several resolutions.

Palestinians want the West Bank as part of a future independent state with East Jerusalem al-Quds as its capital.

The last round of Israeli-Palestinian talks collapsed in 2014. Among the major sticking points in those negotiations was Israel’s continued illegal settlement expansion.
