Palestinian shot dead by Israeli agents near Nablus

Dec. 3, 2012 10:34 A.M. (Updated: Dec. 4, 2012 8:24 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian man was shot dead by Israeli security officials outside Nablus on Monday morning, witnesses said.

Witnesses identified the dead man as Hatem Shadid of the nearby village of Illar. His vehicle collided with an Israeli jeep near the northern West Bank village of Beit Lid, they told Ma'an.

Israeli officials said Shadid's car collided with a vehicle carrying agents of the Israeli internal security service, the Shin Bet.

The Israeli vehicle overturned, and two passengers were wounded in the incident, they said.

Witnesses quoted by Reuters said Shadid then approached the Israelis, who were already injured from the crash, hitting one in the head and the other in the shoulder with an object that he was carrying. Israeli officials said it was an axe.

One of the Israelis then shot him dead, both sides said.

A Ma'an correspondent said the area was declared a closed military zone and Palestinian medics had been unable to reach the site.

Shadid's brother Khaled said he had not received any official notification of the death. He said Shadid was a 35-year-old construction worker with five children.
