DAMASCUS, SYRIA (8:06 A.M)- A mentally challenged Palestinian man was shot dead by Israeli forces, in Hebron (al-Khalil).
Mahmoud Zain Al Jabari, 24 years old, was executed at close range by Israeli soldiers today. Clashes between heavily armed Israeli gunmen and Hebron youths erupted -on a Palestine wide day of protest – against the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital by the US Trump administration.
The 24 year old was caught in the middle of the ongoing tensions and was shot in the head. He collapsed from his sustained head wound, rendered unconscious. Local residents hurried to pick up his body, whilst coming under Israeli sniper fire, he was hurried to the ‘Alia Governmental hospital’, but died soon after arrival.
