Israeli police kill Palestinian young man in Haifa

Israeli police officers on Monday afternoon cold-bloodedly killed a mentally ill Palestinian young man in Haifa City in Israel (the 1948 occupied lands).

According to the Hebrew media, the victim was identified as 33-year-old Munir Anabtawi from Wadi an-Nisnas neighborhood in Haifa.

His family reported that Munir’s mother phoned the police and asked them to help take her son, who suffered from psychological disorders and behaved angrily at the time, to a psychiatric center, but when police officers showed up, they shot him in the back and killed him.

The police claimed that the victim drew a knife and ran after an officer, hurting him lightly on his face.

The family denied the police claim, affirming that the victim, who was divorced and had a seven-year-old girl, was not carrying a knife when he left the house.
