A young Palestinian paramedic, Sajid Abdel Hakim Helmi Mizhir, 17, was shot and killed by Israeli forces who opened fire at his despite wearing his clearly marked medic vest. He died of his wounds in the hospital soon after.

The troops invaded Deheishe camp on Wednesday at dawn, and injured several Palestinians. Sajid was there to treat the wounded, when he was shot in the abdomen.

During the invasion, the soldiers stormed and ransacked several homes, and abducted Mohammad Riziq Hammash, 21, Mahmoud Walid Lahham, and Ma’ali Issa Ma’ali, 27.

The Palestinian Health Ministry issued a statement denouncing Sajed’s death, and stated that the constant targeting of medics and journalists is serious violation of International Law and all related international resolutions, especially the laws that protect civilians in the time of war.

Palestinian Health Minister, Dr. Jawad Awwad, said the soldiers shot and killed Sajed with live fire, despite his clearly marked medic vest.
