Israeli occupation forces murdered on Monday evening Palestinian civilian in village of Taqu in West Bank city of Bethlehem, Palestinian Red Crescent reported.

The Palestinian Red Crescent (PRC) identified the murdered Palestinian as Qusay La’Mour, 17, noting he was shot three times with a live bullet in the chest.

Spokesman of the PRC said that the Israeli occupation forces blocked the body of the Palestinian martyr for a couple of hours before handing it over to family members.

It remained unclear whether La’Mour was already dead when Israeli occupation forces held him, the PRC spokesman said, or if he succumbed to his injuries while in custody.

Palestinian witnesses said that La’Mour was shot during a peaceful protest in the village of Taqu against the Israeli oppression of Palestinian farmers and confiscation of their lands.

Meanwhile, the PRC reported four other Palestinians, including a woman, also shot and injured during the protest.

La’Mour is the fourth Palestinian to have been confirmed murdered by the Israeli occupation forces since the start of January.

Rights groups have routinely condemned Israeli authorities for their excessive use of force against Palestinians, including minors, during incidents which could have been handled without the use of deadly violence.
