Palestinian resistance fighter martyred after reportedly killing three Zionist settlers

Israeli occupation forces shot and killed a Palestinian youth over carrying out an alleged stabbing operation that resulted in killing three Israeli settlers and wounding three others near an illegal settlement in the occupied West Bank on Tuesday afternoon.

The Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed that 18-year-old Mohammad Murad Souf was shot dead by Israeli occupation forces today.

The slain Palestinian was killed over allegedly carrying out a stabbing and car-ramming operation that killed three Israeli settlers and injured three more near the Israeli settlement of Ariel, to the northwest of Salfit.

The Palestinian youth attacked Israeli settlers at two different locations in the Ariel settlement area near the Palestinian city of Salfit, Israeli forces claimed, adding he then fled the scene in a vehicle and caused a car crash, before he got out and was shot dead by Israeli soldiers.

Following the incident, Israeli occupation forces reportedly raided Souf’s hometown. The forces then stormed his family house and besieged its residents inside before attacking and interrogating them.
