AL ARRUB REFUGEE CAMP | HEBRON
On 11 November 2014, an Israeli soldier shot and killed 21-year-old Mohammad Jawabreh, in Al Arrub refugee camp, north of Hebron.
The incident took place during clashes lasting for several hours that erupted following a demonstration held to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the death of former Palestinian President Yasser Arafat.
The following are the initial findings of an investigation into this incident conducted by the Office of the High commissioner for Human Rights.
Jawabreh took part in the initial clashes and was struck in the leg by a rubber-coated metal bullet.
He was treated on the spot and left the scene with a friend.
The two continued to Jawabreh’s house and watched the clashes from a window on the second floor of the house.
Shortly after, an Israeli soldier positioned on an adjacent roof ordered the two to leave the window, subsequently firing a teargas canister in their direction.
The two left the window for some time, but returned later with a family member and continued watching the clashes.
A few minutes later, Jawabreh suddenly shouted and collapsed on the floor. He had been shot with live ammunition on the left side of his back.
The two men accompanying him carried him down, put him in a car and drove towards Beit Ummar, where he was transferred to an ambulance.
He was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital.
