Hi there,

Our generous triple match has been extended, which means your donation to Democracy Now! today will be TRIPLED. If you give $10, we'll get $30 to support our independent journalism. Please don’t miss out on this opportunity to triple your impact. Democracy Now! is a free source of independent news for tens of millions of people around the world, but less than 1% of our global audience donates to support our critical reporting. Let’s pick up the percentage! We rely on you for support—not the oil, gas, coal and nuclear companies when we cover the climate crisis or the weapons manufacturers when we cover war. I hope you’ll give as much as you can today. Every dollar makes a difference. Thanks so much.
-Amy Goodman

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.”
