Israeli troopers detain an anti-Tel Aviv protestor in a village in the occupied Palestinian territory of the West Bank on December 10, 2010.
Israeli forces have shot and killed a Palestinian man in the north of the West Bank, leaving a trail of killings in the occupied Palestinian territory.

The 25-year-old, named Khaldun Samudi, was sprayed with bullets by Israeli soldiers east of Nablus city on Saturday, AFP reported.

The military then stripped the man of his clothes and left him to bleed to death, Ma’an news agency quoted an eye witness as saying.

Israeli soldiers killed an elderly Palestinian man in the city of al-Khalil (Hebron) in the southern West Bank on Friday during an attack on several residences there, AFP said.

Identified as Omar Kawasme, the 67-year-old victim was reportedly shot 13 times in the head while asleep.

The military has admitted that Kawasme was an innocent civilian and that the troops mistook him for a supporter of the Palestinian resistance movement of Hamas.

Last Sunday, the troopers claimed the life of a 24-year-old Palestinian man at a checkpoint near Nablus. The Israeli forces claimed that the victim had attacked them, but the Palestinian witnesses stressed that he was unarmed.

A 36-year-old Palestinian woman also died after inhaling tear gas fired by Israeli forces, who were confronting an anti-wall protest, launched in the western village of Bil’in last Friday.
