Palestinian dies of wounds in Nabi Saleh protest

Nov. 19, 2012 7:57 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 20, 2012 3:06 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A 28-year-old Palestinian man died on Monday after he was wounded in clashes with Israeli forces at a protest in the West Bank.

Rushdi Mahmoud Hassan al-Tamimi was hit by live fire in the stomach and thigh during a Gaza solidarity demonstration in Nabi Saleh, near Ramallah, on Saturday, the village's popular committee said.

Al-Tamimi was taken to the Palestine medical complex in Ramallah with internal bleeding. A doctor in the hospital confirmed he had died on Monday evening.

The committee said al-Tamimi was left on the ground after he was shot at close range, and Israeli forces threatened citizens who tried to administer first aid.

The Israeli army said forces used riot dispersal means at an "illegal and violent protest" in Nabi Saleh, and that it was investigating circumstances of the incident. A statement noted that it had not received a formal complaint about al-Tamimi's death.

Al-Tamimi was a Palestinian police officer. His funeral will be held in Nabi Saleh on Tuesday.

After news of his death, a large crowd of Palestinians took to the streets in Ramallah to protest before heading to the hospital to offer condolences.

A Nabi Saleh resident captured the moments after al-Tamimi was shot on film.
