Earlier today, Ahmad Abu Junaid succumbed to wounds he sustained when he was shot by Israeli soldiers during a military raid in the Balata refugee camp, in the town of Nablus.
According to United Nations sources, 2022 was one of the bloodiest years on record in terms of Palestinian casualties who were killed by the Israeli army.
2023 promises to be equally bloody, as many Palestinians have been shot and killed by the Israeli military since January 1.
