Hebron man dies of wounds sustained during Friday clashes

Aug. 9, 2014 10:13 A.M. (Updated: Aug. 10, 2014 4:20 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A 40-year-old Palestinian man succumbed Saturday morning to wounds he sustained Friday afternoon during clashes between Palestinians and Israeli troops in the Bab al-Zawiya neighborhood of Hebron in the southern West Bank.

The death of Nader Muhammad Idris brought the total number of Palestinians killed as Israeli forces violently dispersed rallies across the West Bank on Friday to two, while at least 17 have been killed in protests that began since Israel launched its assault on Gaza over a month ago.

Medical sources at al-Mizan Hospital announced the death of Idris around 2 a.m., saying that he underwent a "complicated cardiac surgery" in an attempt to save his life after he sustained a serious arterial gunshot wound.

The sources added that 35 blood units were transfused during the surgery.

The body of Idris was taken to a morgue at al-Ahli Hospital. The family will take the body later in the day for funeral procession and burial after midday prayer.

Idris was shot during a rally in Hebron in which more than 40 Palestinians were hit either by live ammunition or rubber-coated bullets.

Rallies have erupted on a daily basis across the West Bank for the last month in protest against the Israeli assault on Gaza, which has killed nearly 1,890 Palestinians in the last 33 days.

On Friday, thousands marched in major cities and villages across the West Bank to show support for the demands of the Palestinian negotiating team in Cairo.
