The sources stated that resident Mohammad Taiseer Abu Awwad, 19, was critically injured on Monday by Israeli troops when they opened fire at a group of Palestinian youths conducting a commemoration protest near the central West Bank city of Ramallah. He was hit in the head and suffered a skull fracture that lead to internal and external bleeding.

Dr. Ahmad Al-Beetawi, head of the Ramallah medical center, told reporters that Awwad was immediately moved to surgery.

Dozens of youth were holding a protest at the roadblock marking the death of the six family members of Bassam Abu Awwad, after their vehicle collided with a Hummer Israeli military jeep at the roadblock, two years ago.

The crash took place on Friday, March 5, 2010, when an Israeli military Hummer Jeep crashed into a Palestinian Cab at the Silwan Bridge, in the Ramallah district; resident Bassam Abu Awwad, 40, his wife Samia, 27, his children Yousef, 8, Aayaat, 3, Jannat, 2, and his two-month infant, Mahmoud, were all killed.
