Ashkelon (QNN)- Israeli occupation forces shot and killed a Palestinian worker at a construction site in Ashkelon city in the 1948-occupied Palestine, earlier on Tuesday.
Israeli media reported that a police officer was on a patrol searching for Palestinians working in ‘Israel’ without work permits in construction sites in the area.
However, the police officer opened fire at the 40-year-old worker, claiming the worker refused to show his identity and work permit, killing him on the spot.
The worker has been identified later as Abdullah Srour, a resident of the city of Hebron, south of the occupied West Bank.
Media reports: “The Palestinian who was shot dead by Israeli occupation forces last night in Asqalan has been identified as Abdullah Srour, 40, a resident of the city of Hebron, south of the occupied West Bank.”
The Israeli Occupation Forces also alleged that the worker stabbed the officer and injured him in the hand when he refused to show his identity and work permit.
It is worth mentioning that this is the fifth Palestinian to be shot dead by Israeli forces in the last 24 hours.
