Palestinian Youth Shot Dead by Israeli Troops


Twenty-two-year-old Dhiaa Abdul Halim al-Talahma was shot dead at dawn Tuesday by the Israeli forces in al-Khalil’s town of Dura, in the Southern West Bank.

The casualty’s family said that the Israeli troops shot Dhiaa with live ammunition in his head at the Kharsa crossroads, PIC reported.

Dhiaa kept bleeding for long hours as the Israeli forces prevented the ambulance crews from reaching him.

Dhiaa was later handed dead to the ambulance personnel.

Paramedics found out that his hand was amputated and that he sustained several deadly bullet injuries in his head.

Sources in the Red Cross said rescue staff who rushed to the scene were denied access into the area by the Israeli officers.
