“Horrified by today’s killing of a Palestinian man, Ammar Mefleh, during a scuffle with an Israeli soldier near Huwwara in the occupied West Bank,” wrote Wennesland in a tweet, stressing,
“Such incidents must be fully and promptly investigated, and those responsible held accountable.”
The Special Coordinator sent his “heartfelt condolences to his bereaved family.”
A video circulating on social media showed an Israeli soldier shooting 23-year-old Mefleh at point-blank.

Mefleh was shot four times and left bleeding on the ground while Israeli soldiers prevented Palestinian ambulances from helping him. His body was then seized by the army.
