Israel Kills Second Palestinian in One Day, Death Toll Reaches 101

NABLUS, November 26, 2015 (WAFA) – Israeli armed forces Thursday killed a Palestinian at Zatara checkpoint, south of Nablus, bringing the death toll of Palestinians killed since early October 2015 to 101, according to local sources.

After Israeli troops Thursday shot dead Yehya Taha, 21, from Qatanna village, northwest of Jerusalem, Israeli army forces killed a second Palestinian identified as Samer Sirisi, 51 years old, at Zatara checkpoint, south of Nablus, according to the Ministry of Health.

Sirisi succumbed to his wounds after Israeli army forces shot him and left him bleeding on the ground without providing him with the necessary medical treatment.

In a statement issued Thursday, the Ministry said 101 Palestinians, including 22 children and four women, have so far been killed since the outbreak of unrest in the West Bank districts and Jerusalem since early October 2015.
