Thursday, April 4th, 2013

An Arab teenager, Naji al-Balbisi, 18, died after being shot by Israeli forces during stone throwing and fire bombing clashes near Tulkarem, in Judea and Samaria, late Wednesday, Ma’an reported.

According to Ma’an, the IDF detained the body al-Balbisi for several hours, and then at 4 AM handed it over to the Red Crescent.

The teenager was the second to die after Israeli soldiers shot and killed a youth late Wednesday near a checkpoint in the Tulkarem area.

Soldiers in the area opened fire at Amer Nassar, 17, killing him instantly in response to Arab firebombing targeting a military post.

An Israeli army official said Arabs had attacked the post with firebombs.

“IDF soldiers responded by firing towards the attackers and identified a hit,” the IDF spokesperson stated, adding that “the circumstances are currently being reviewed.”

Close to a thousand people turned out on the streets of Tulkarem in the aftermath, according to Ma’an. Mourners carried the youth’s body as the crowd chanted slogans condemning the attack.

The incident came as clashes broke out in Judea and Samaria, especially in Hebron, between Israeli soldiers and Arabs protesting the death from cancer of a prisoner serving a life sentence in Israeli prison.

Maisara Abu Hamdiyeh was diagnosed with throat cancer and died after serving 10 years of his sentence, for attempted murder.

The Palestinian Authority has accused Israel of medical negligence, conveniently ignoring the fact that the prison service was in the process of approving an early release for Abu Hamdiyeh, on compassionate grounds.
