Youth Seriously Injured By Army Fire Near Ramallah

by Saed Bannoura

Palestinian medical sources reported, Monday, that a Palestinian youth was seriously wounded after Israeli troops fired gas bombs and rubber-coated metal bullets at Palestinian protestors, at the Atara roadblock, north of the central West Bank city of Ramallah.

 The sources stated that resident Mohammad Taiseer Abu Awwad, 19, was hit by the high velocity teargas bomb in his head resulting in a skull fracture and leading to internal and external bleeding.

He was immediately moved to surgery at the Ramallah Medical Center, and is currently in a serious condition, the Wattan News Agency reported.

The Agency added that dozens of youth were holding a protest at the roadblock marking the death of the six family members of Bassam Abu Awwad, after their vehicle collided with a Hummer Israeli military jeep at the roadblock, two years ago.

The crash took place on Friday, March 5, 2010, when an Israeli military Hummer Jeep crashed into a Palestinian Cab at the Silwan Bridge, in the Ramallah district; resident Bassam Abu Awwad, 40, his wife Samia, 27, his children Yousef, 8, Aayaat, 3, Jannat, 2, and his two-month infant, Mahmoud, were all killed.
