Israeli Forces Kill 17-Year-Old Palestinian in Nablus Raid

HeadlineFeb 08, 2023

In the occupied West Bank, Israeli soldiers have killed another Palestinian teenager in the city of Nablus. Seventeen-year-old Hamza al-Ashkar was fatally shot in the face as Israeli forces conducted raids and dozens of arrests across the West Bank Tuesday. This is al-Ashkar’s grandmother.

Lina al-Ashkar: “My sweetheart, he is still 17 years old. He wanted to work, because his father is not financially stable. God bless him. He wanted to work, but he didn’t. He died. He couldn’t work. My sweetheart, he died. May he rest in peace.”
