Israeli forces kill deaf Palestinian man during clashes in Hebron

March 10, 2018 1:36 P.M. (Updated: March 13, 2018 3:54 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Friday afternoon shot and killed a deaf Palestinian man in the southern occupied West Bank city of Hebron during clashes that were taking place in the Bab al-Zawiya area of the city.

The man was identified as 24-year-old Muhammad Zain al-Jaabari, a father of two from the city of Hebron.

Al-Jaabari was critically injured during clashes between Israeli forces and local Palestinian youth in the city. He was rushed to the hospital but succumbed to his wounds shortly after.

Witnesses claimed that al-Jaabari was not actively engaged in the confrontations when he was shot.

Israeli forces have long been criticized for their use of excessive force against Palestinians, and what rights groups have termed their policy of “extrajudicial execution” in instances where Palestinians who did not pose a direct threat to the lives of soldiers could have been detained in a non-lethal manner.
