Palestinian succumbs to wounds sustained in 2007 Israeli army raid

RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- A Palestinian man died on Thursday after suffering for nearly ten years of wounds sustained during an Israeli army raid.

The Makassed hospital announced the death of Mahmoud Jawda, who had been treated at the occupied East Jerusalem medical center ever since he was shot multiple times by Israeli forces during a military raid in Ramallah in 2007.

Jawda’s family requested that competent authorities to help transfer the Palestinian man’s body from Jerusalem to Ramallah for burial.

While Israeli army regulations only permit the use of live fire on Palestinians when Israeli soldiers are considered to be in imminent danger, they often open fire on Palestinians indiscriminately as a “crowd control” tactic during military raids.

Israeli police and soldiers have come under heavy criticism by rights groups for excessive use of force against Palestinians who did not pose an immediate threat or who could have been disarmed through non-violent means.

According to UN documentation, more than 3,000 Palestinians have been injured by Israeli forces so far in 2016.
