Palestinian man succumbs to Israeli-inflicted bullet wounds

Nov. 28, 2013 10:46 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 30, 2013 12:20 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A man who was injured by Israeli forces several months ago succumbed to his wounds Thursday, a Ma'an reporter said.

Mahmoud Wajeeh Awwad, 28, died Thursday in an Israeli hospital from months-old bullet wounds inflicted by Israeli forces.

Israeli soldiers shot Awwad in the head with a rubber-coated steel bullet eight months ago during clashes at the entrance of Qalandya refugee camp in Ramallah.

The injury caused him to fall into a coma, and he remained comatose until medics pronounced him dead late Thursday.

Israeli forces regularly fire rubber-coated steel bullets and tear gas canisters at Palestinian protesters, referring to the practice as "riot dispersal."

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.
