Israeli occupation forces Wednesday evening killed a Palestinian accused of carrying out a shooting attack to the east of the occupied city of al-Quds (Jerusalem), Palestinian media reported.
According to WAFA News Agency, the occupation forces killed Oday Tamimi, a resident of the Jerusalem refugee camp of Shuafat, accused of killing a soldier and injuring another in a drive-by shooting attack at the checkpoint at the camp’s entrance on Oct. 8, at the entrance to the colonial settlement of Ma’ale Adumim.
The Zionist soldiers exchanged gunfire with Tamimi at the settlement entrance, killing him. His body is withheld by the occupation authorities.
The occupation forces pursued Tamimi for over ten days following the drive-by shooting. They besieged Shufat camp, Anata town and the surrounding areas for 12 days, initiated large-scale and violent searches of homes and buildings, and detained dozens of Palestinians.
