Following an investigation into several cases of Palestinian deaths, Amnesty International found that Dania's killing was "absolutely unjustified" and called for Israel to end its "pattern of unlawful killings."
The other man, who was hot dead in Halhul, was killed an alleged attempted car ramming attack, Israel's army said. According to an Israeli army spokesperson ''the Israeli forces responded to the imminent threat and opened fire, killing the man.'' No Israelis were injured in the alleged attempted attack.The Palestinian has been identified as the 55 year old Omar al-Hroub from Deir Samit village in western Hebron.
Hebron has become the epicenter of violence over the last two months, as roughly 30 percent of the now 121 Palestinians to be killed since Oct. 1 were from the Hebron district.
Earlier on Friday, Israeli forces and a Palestinian gunman exchanged fire at the al-Jalama checkpoint in the northern occupied West Bank distinct of Jenin. An Israeli army spokesperson said shots were reportedly fired at Israeli forces at the border crossing, who responded and opened fire back.The gunman was shot during the exchange, the army said, although his condition and whereabouts are unclear. No Israelis were injured in the exchange.
Israeli forces have arrested a Palestinian allegedly responsible for Thursday's car ramming attack near the illegal Israeli settlement of Beit Aryeh-Ofarim in the Salfit district, which injured four Israeli soldiers. An Israeli army spokesperson said Muhammad Abdelhalim Abdel al-Hamid Salem, 37, was detained overnight Thursday in a joint operation between the Israeli army, Shin Bet, and police forces.The spokesperson alleged that Salem was a "Hamas operative with a criminal record." Israeli media reported that Salem had spent six months under administrative detention -- internment without trial or charge -- in 2001, but noted that he had not been detained since.
