RAMALLAH, Jan. 12 (YPA) – A Palestinian man was killed early Wednesday north of the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah by the Zionist forces, WAFA News Agency reported, citing sources.

An 80-year-old Palestinian man died early today after Israeli occupation soldiers detained, blindfolded, and handcuffed him in the village of Jiljilya, north of the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah, sources confirmed.

According to Fouad Moutee, head of the Jiljilya village council, Omar Abdalmajeed As’ad was going home after a visit to his relatives when the occupation soldiers stopped his vehicle and pulled him out of it, blindfolded, handcuffed, and harassed him before leaving him in a building that was under construction.

He said that the soldiers did the same to four other citizens, including workers and vegetable sellers, who were on their way to work in the early hours of the morning.

Moutee said that at approximately 4:30 in the morning, and after the Israeli soldiers had left the area, residents rushed to the building where the detainees were left to find the elderly man dead.
