According to the statement from the health portfolio, “Ahmed Ibrahim Oweidat, 20, died of critical wounds sustained by live bullets from the occupation forces, to the head, at dawn today, in the Aqabat Jaber camp, near of Jericho.”
Eyewitnesses told local media that the young Oweidat was injured during clashes that broke out between an Israeli military force and dozens of Palestinians in the “Aqabat Jabr” camp near Jericho, during which the army used live ammunition.
Witnesses said that the Israeli army raided and searched several houses. Clashes often break out between Palestinians and the Israeli army during the latter’s arrest operations.
The Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas), which rules the Gaza Strip, mourned the death of the young Palestinian, while reaffirming what it called its decision to “stand up to terrorism and the crimes of the occupation against our land and our holy sites.
Hamas stated that the repressive actions will only increase our determination and adherence to our legitimate rights, and will not break our will to defeat the occupation and achieve our people’s aspirations of liberation and return.”
For its part, the Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates condemned what it called the heinous crime committed by the occupying forces.
He considered this crime “an extension of the crimes of executions in the field and extrajudicial executions committed by the occupation forces against unarmed and safe civilians in their areas of residence and homes.”
It rejects that the occupying state “allows soldiers to treat Palestinians as targets to shoot and train without scruples of conscience or the law.”
The statement stressed that the occupation army’s repeated incursions into Palestinian cities, camps and villages, resulting in repression, abuse and intimidation of Palestinian citizens.
This situation reflects the depth of the official Israeli blow against the signed agreements and its continuous and flagrant insistence on escalating and dragging the arena of the conflict into a cycle of violence.
The ministry called on the International Criminal Court to break its silence and immediately start its investigations into the crimes of the occupation to bring to account and bring to justice the Israeli war criminals and those behind them.
