Occupied Hebron (QNN)- An Israeli sniper, who was few meters away from Omar Badawi, sniped the young man on Monday killing him. Badawi, who did not pose any threat, was shot while he was trying to put out fire in his house at Al Arroub refugee camp in Hebron.
Israeli soldiers stormed into the refugee camp earlier today to repress marches, which were organized remembering the death of Yaser Arafat. Israeli soldiers stormed the area and repressed the marches, causing violent confrontations to erupt.
Badawi’s house was set to fire due to Israeli grenades, which were randomly fired at the houses in the camp. Badawi rushed to rescue his house before an Israeli sniper shoots him dead. Nearby journalists and residents video taped the Israeli crime.
Hundreds of Palestinians took to the streets in Badawi’s funeral after performing the funeral prayer and bidding farewell to him.
Several confrontations erupted today throughout the West Bank following the Israeli repression of marches, which were held commemorating the 15th anniversary for the death of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.
