Israeli forces shot dead an unarmed Palestinian man in the West Bank, the Palestinian Health Ministry said, in what the Israeli military described as an “attack” on soldiers at an army outpost the.

Abdullah Sami Qalalweh, 26, was killed Friday night by “ammunition by Israeli occupation forces near the town of Huwara, south of Nablus,” the Palestinian ministry said in a statement.

The official Palestinian news agency WAFA quoted Ahmad Jibril, a spokesman for the Palestinian Red Crescent, as saying the victim died minutes after being fatally shot by Israeli forces.

Qalalweh’s death brings the total number of Palestinians killed by Israeli forces this year to 36, including eight children and an elderly woman, WAFA reported. Six Israeli civilians, including a child, and a Ukrainian civilian were killed during the same time period in the occupied Palestinian territories.

The Israeli military said its forces “fired live ammunition into the air” after a suspect “walked towards an adjacent military outpost” to a military base in the Huwara area. It said Qalalweh “tried to attack one of the soldiers” and that “another soldier present on the spot fired in the direction of the suspect and hit him”.

The military confirmed that Qalalweh was unarmed.

He emphasized adherence to “rules governing the use of force in law enforcement activities,” according to a statement from his office.

“The use of firearms is only permitted as a last resort, when there is an imminent threat to life or serious injury.”

Civilians confronted Israeli forces in the attacks and innocent bystanders were killed, as were Palestinian militants in targeted assassinations and in armed clashes.
