The death of a 22-year-old nursing student, has reignited anger over Israel’s selective policing of Palestinian communities in the country

Hearing the shootout, Hijazi and Armoush went out. Hijazi was shot and killed, while Armoush was shot in the leg and then hospitalised in Haifa.

Israeli police said that one of the gunmen, Mahmoud Hisham Yassin, was killed and another was injured on Monday night, adding that it had opened an investigation into Hijazi’s death.
