Israeli soldiers shot and killed a Palestinian man at Huwwara checkpoint, south of Nablus in the north of the occupied West Bank, on Sunday evening.

Eyewitnesses said the soldiers fired many live rounds fired at the Palestinian after dragging him out of his car, while the army claimed, “he ran toward the soldiers.”

The slain Palestinian was later identified as Rami Ortani, 31 years.

The Israeli soldiers prevented Palestinian ambulances from entering the area, and refused to allow the medics to approach him to provide the urgently needed medical treatment.

The Palestinian bled to death, while the soldiers closed the entire area, and declared it a closed military zone.

Eyewitnesses confirmed that the soldiers forced Ortani out of his car, and executed him at close range.
