Fadi Washaha was wanted by the Israeli security forces for about a year. He apparently wasn’t a major wanted person: He took precautions but occasionally visited his home and sometimes even slept there. He told the Shin Bet security agents who were after him that he would turn himself in after completing his university exams – because of his arrests and imprisonments, his studies stretched over many years. But the security forces had different plans and decided to put an end to the cat-and-mouse game with Washaha. On Nakba Day, May 15, while attending a demonstration in City Inn square at the northern entrance to El Bireh, adjacent to Ramallah, he was shot in the head, from a distance of about 100 meters, and killed.
