NAZARETH, (PIC)– Israeli military sources acknowledged on Sunday that the Palestinian youth who was killed earlier today at the Hamra roadblock near Tobas city was not carrying a knife or a firebomb as initially claimed by the Israeli soldiers.

The Israeli army radio quoted those sources as saying that the Palestinian young man was carrying a small piece of glass, which Palestinian sources later said was only a soft drink.

The Palestinian sources said that Ahmed Muslamani, 25, was heading to Najah University in Nablus, where he is a fourth grader, with a soft drink in his hand.

They added that the soldiers at the roadblock refused to let him cross and when he asked why a female conscript shouted at him to return from where he came and the soldiers fired at him directly believing that he was trying to attack them leading to his instant death.

The Israeli army firstly claimed that the youth refused to obey orders to stop and tried to assault one of the soldiers with a knife prompting the soldiers to shoot him.
