Palestine in Pictures: May 2019

Thirty Palestinians were killed in the context of Israel’s military occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip during the month of May.

Two of those killings took place in the West Bank on the last day of the month.

Yusif Wajih Suheil, 18, was shot and killed by Israeli police in the Old City of Jerusalem after stabbing two persons, critically injuring a 50-year-old man.

Security camera footage released by Israeli police appears to show Suheil lunging at a man on a bicycle who is wearing Orthodox Jewish dress, then chasing after another man.

The edited compilation of footage also shows police firing at Suheil and him falling to the ground as he poses no apparent immediate life-threatening danger to others, suggesting that no attempt was made to detain Suheil or use non-lethal means to subdue him.
