26-year-old Killed by Israeli Forces in Hebron

Israeli-Palestinian violence has spiked in recent days, with an Israeli military raid on a militant stronghold in the West Bank city of Jenin last week killing nine, most of them militants, and a Palestinian shooting attack in an east Jerusalem Jewish settlement that killed seven Israelis

Israeli forces killed a Palestinian man in a flashpoint city in the occupied West Bank on Monday, the Palestinian Health Ministry said. The killing marks the latest bloodshed in spiraling violence that comes as U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken visits the region.

The Palestinian Health Ministry said the man, Nassim Abu Fouda, 26, was shot in Hebron, often a center of clashes between the Israeli military and Palestinians. The Israeli military said the incident in "under investigation", but claim that Abu Fouda tried to avoid a checkpoint so the soldiers fired in his direction and he crashed his vehicle.

The IDF Spokespersons Office said that :"An IDF force was carrying out a standard patrol in the Hebron area when they identified a vehicle driving in a suspicious manner so they called out to the driver and ordered him to stop." The army claims that Abu Fouda ran over a soldier's leg when they approached his vehicle. "The soldiers fired at the vehicle when it tried to drive off, and hit the driver. The car kept on moving and eventually crashed. The driver received medical treatment by the Palestinian Red Crescent medics, and was later pronounced dead."

Israeli-Palestinian violence has spiked in recent days, with an Israeli military raid on a militant stronghold in the West Bank city of Jenin last week killing nine, most of them militants, and a Palestinian shooting attack in an east Jerusalem Jewish settlement that killed seven Israelis.

Unrest has continued in the ensuing days, prompting Israel to approve a series of punitive steps against the Palestinians and ratcheting up tensions just as Blinken begins meetings with leaders later in the day.

Since the attack on the Synagogue in East Jerusalem, there have been dozens of incidents in the West Bank. Many involved settlers leaving their settlements to stone Palestinian cars on the highways. There have also been at least two arson attacks – Palestinian vehicles and homes were torched in the villages of Aqraba and Turmus Ayya.

The violence comes after months of Israeli arrest raids in the West Bank, which were launched after a wave of Palestinian attacks against Israelis in the spring of 2022 that killed 19 people. Nearly 150 Palestinians were killed in the West Bank and east Jerusalem last year, making it the deadliest year in those territories since 2004, according to figures from the Israeli rights group B'Tselem. Another 10 Israelis were killed later last year, raising the 2022 Israeli death toll to 29.

The bloodshed has spiked this month, during the first weeks of Israel's new far-right government, which has promised to take a tough stance against the Palestinians and ramp up settlement construction. Monday's death brings the toll of Palestinians killed this month to 35.

Blinken's visit, which was planned before the flare-up, was expected to be fraught with tension over differences between the Biden administration and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s new government, which is made up of settlement supporters. He will now need to contend with an additional challenge during his trip, trying to restore calm even as violence persists.

After the Jenin raid, the Palestinians said they would cancel security coordination with Israel and after attacks against Israelis intensified, Israel said it would beef up Jewish settlements in the West Bank, among other steps.
