At around noon, on April 15, 2002, a Palestinian resident of the Qalandiya Refugee Camp left the mosque after prayers. As he walked along the street, an Israeli soldier fired a single shot at him, the bullet entered through his back and exited through the chest. The soldier then got into a military vehicle and drove off. The man was rushed to the Arab Care Hospital in Ramallah, where he was pronounced dead. The deceased had been the sole provider of his family; he left behind four small children, his wife, and parents.
