Israeli forces shoot, kill worker south of Hebron

Jan. 12, 2013 6:49 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 15, 2013 1:59 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot dead a Palestinian worker on Saturday who was attempting to cross into Israel, Israeli medical sources said.

Uday Kamil Muhammad Darawish, 21, was attempting to cross the border in an area south of Hebron when he spotted an Israeli military patrol and began to run away.

Darawish, from Dura, worked in Israel but did not have a permit.

He was shot in the back by Israeli soldiers and evacuated to Soroka Medical Center in Beersheba, Israeli medical sources said.

An Israeli army spokesman told Ma'an that "a man attempted to infiltrate Israel through its security fence. Soldiers at the scene acted in accordance with IDF rules of engagement and fired at his legs. The incident is currently being investigated."

Initial reports said that Darwish was injured after falling over while trying to escape.
