Palestinian government condemns Israeli killing of 3 Palestinians

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The caretaker government of Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah condemned the killing of three Palestinians in the occupied West Bank districts of Nablus and Ramallah, on Wednesday.

The Palestinian government spokesperson, Yousef al-Mahmoud, held the Israeli government accountable for the killing of Omar Abu Leila, 19, a suspect in a stabbing and shooting attack near the illegal Ariel settlement in Salfit, as well as Raed Hashem Muhammad Hamdan, 21, and Zaid Imad Muhammad Nuri, 20, in Nablus.

Omar Abu Leila was shot and killed after dozens of heavily armed Israeli forces surrounded a house, in Abwein village, that he barricaded himself in and opened heavy fire towards him.

Israeli forces opened fire towards a vehicle, in which Hamdan and Nuri were present, in the al-Ghawi area in Nablus City’s Amman Street, killing them straight away.

Mahmoud stressed that Israel is “deliberately making the situation worse with the killing of Palestinians.”

He reiterated calls to provide international protection for the Palestinian people.

In addition, a general strike was declared in the Nablus and Salfit districts as a form of mourning for the slain Palestinians.
