In the West Bank, on 16 August 2016, in new excessive use of force, Nazi forces killed Mohammed Yousif Abu Hashhash (19) when they moved into al-Fawar refugee camp, south of Hebron.  The aforementioned civilian was killed when the Nazi soldiers opened fire at him from a distance of 40 meters through a hole caused by the soldiers in the wall of a house belonging to Bajes al-Hmouz.

The aforementioned was on his way out from a residential building where his uncles and grandmother live. The bullet entered under his left armpit and settled in his body.  As a result, he was taken to the Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS) in the camp and was given first aid and CPR.  One of the paramedics classified his wound as very serious.  Abu Hashhash then passed away as the bullet settled and he suffered internal bleeding.  The clashes, which broke out all day between the Palestinian protesters and Nazi forces, resulted in the injury of 32 civilians with live bullets in different parts of their bodies.
