Zionist regime forces have shot and killed a Palestinian man at Al-Zaeem checkpoint, which separates an illegal Zionist settlement in the occupied West Bank from a neighborhood that lies in occupied East Jerusalem al Quds.

Iran Press/Middle East: Nour Shuqir, from the town of Silwan in occupied East Jerusalem al Quds, was accused of attempting to flee an inspection at the checkpoint, hitting and lightly injuring an Israeli border officer.

According to Al Jazeera,  Israeli policemen and security forces fired at the vehicle, wounding the driver, who was rushed to the Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem al Quds.

The hospital said he arrived at the trauma unit with no pulse and a severe stomach wound.

This comes as attacks on Palestinians in the West Bank are on the increase.

Earlier this month, a Palestinian motorist was shot dead by Israeli forces who claimed he fired a pistol at the Huwara military checkpoint at the entrance of Nablus, in the occupied West Bank.

The Palestinian Red Crescent said in a statement that the Israeli army prevented its medics from accessing the scene and providing first aid to Rawajbeh after he was shot and that his body is in Israeli custody and could not immediately be retrieved.

A number of local and international human rights groups have raised concerns that Israeli security forces have used excessive force when confronting Palestinian suspects.

Israeli occupation forces relaxed their open-fire regulations in December 2015, permitting officers to open fire with live ammunition on those throwing stones or firebombs as an initial option, without having to use non-lethal weapons first.

The UAE, Bahrain, and Sudan have signed agreements on the normalization of relations with Israel in the White House in deals brokered by US President Donald Trump's administration.

At the time that the Israeli regime has occupied many Arab-Islamic areas in addition to repressing the Palestinians, the Arab regimes are making their efforts to normalize relations with the Israeli regime.
