Palestinian shot by Israeli soldiers dies of wounds

Mustafa Aslan, a 24-year-old Palestinian who was shot by Israeli soldiers last week, succumbed to his wounds Wednesday.

According to Israeli human rights group B’Tselem, Aslan was shot during a military raid on the Qalandia refugee camp south of Ramallah last Friday.

According to Ma’an News Agency, he was first taken to Ramallah Governmental Hospital before being transferred to Jerusalem’s Hadassah hospital earlier in the day. Asland was pronounced “clinically dead” by Israeli medical officials at around noon.

Israeli forces confirmed the raid and the shooting, saying that they responded with live fire after a grenade was thrown at Israeli forces in the camp.

Aslan’s death raises the Palestinian death toll from “Operation Brother’s Keeper” to six, and comes just days after Israeli forces killed two Palestinians in the northern West Bank, far from the center of search operations for three kidnapped Israeli teens in the southern Hebron region.

      Yeah, war sucks, doesn’t it?

      If the “Palestinian” Left, which loves death more than the Yahood loves life, has suddenly taken an interest in caring about the lives of their soldiers – shouldn’t they end their war?

        Whenever I need to be reminded of the inhuman cruelty of the average Israeli, I come to 972mag and read the comments section. Thank you for your service, Dazed And Confused.

          He’s not Israeli. Just one more American Jew putting out to pasture that they are progressive and humane as a group. The worst thing to happen to the Middle East was the Americans, and American Jewry in particular. Worse than the British.

          “Whenever I need to be reminded of the inhuman cruelty of the average Israeli, I come to 972mag and read the comments section.”

          I wonder how this would read if we altered a couple of words:

          “Whenever I need to be reminded of the inhuman cruelty of the average Arab, I watch the news.”

      Philos – shut up. I’m an American-Israeli Jew. Don’t lump me into any category. Don’t blame me for anything. Don’t say I’m the worst of anything. You’re bigoted and arrogant.
