Israeli Forces Kill Palestinian Man Standing on His Own Roof

HeadlineJan 12, 2023

Israeli forces shot and killed a Palestinian man as he was standing on the roof of his own home in occupied East Jerusalem. The killing came during a raid on the Qalandiya refugee camp. Sameer Aslan was 41 years old and a father to eight. He was the third Palestinian to be killed by Israeli forces in under 24 hours, following the deaths of 21-year-old Ahmed Abu Jneid and 19-year-old Sanad Mohammad Samasra in the occupied West Bank. Israel has killed at least seven Palestinians since the start of the year, including three children.
