Family of Man Killed by IDF: We Weren’t Allowed to Convince Him to Surrender

The 24-year-old killed by Israeli forces in Bir Zeit last Thursday was buried in the village’s old Muslim cemetery on Friday. Muataz Washaha’s family said he was assassinated from close range and that commanders on the scene didn’t allow them to try and convince him to give himself up.
