The Israeli occupation forces blindfolded, handcuffed, beat and harassed the old man before leaving him in an abandoned building to face death.

An 80-year-old Palestinian man was killed on Wednesday morning after Israeli soldiers detained, blindfolded and handcuffed him in the village of Jiljilya, north of occupied West Bank city of Ramallah.

Fouad Moutee, head of the Jiljilya village council, said that Omar Abdalmajeed Asaad was going home after a visit to his relatives when Israeli occupation forces stopped his vehicle and pulled him out of it.

The Israeli occupation forces blindfolded, handcuffed, beat and harassed him before leaving him in a building that was under construction.

He said that the Israeli occupation forces did the same thing to four other citizens, including workers and vegetable sellers, who were on their way to work in the early hours of the morning.

Moutee said that at approximately 4:30am, and after the Israeli occupation forces had left the area, residents rushed to the building where the detainees were left to find the elderly man dead, holding the Israeli occupation forces responsible for his death.
