A Palestinian man was killed in clashes that broke out between Israeli Police and Border Police in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan on Tuesday night, during the Yom Kippur fast.
Ali Atef Shuyukhi, 20, was shot dead in the clashes, which lasted for a few hours. He was released from Israeli prison a few months ago after serving a year-and-a-half-long sentence.The Jerusalem Police said masked men started hurling stones and Molotov cocktails at Border Police officers who were on patrol in Silwan.
Police said the rioting “was directly targeting the force and substantially endangered the lives of the soldiers.”
This led the troops to fire at the rioters, hitting Shuyukhi. The rioters then escaped, taking Shuyukhi with them.
