Israeli occupation police said that the Palestinian who was killed earlier by IOF fire was not an attacker, impudently accusing his cousin who was driving the car during the incident of causing his death.
Occupation police originally said they opened fire on Monday during a would-be car-ramming attack targeting officers in the Shuafat refugee camp in east al-Quds (Jerusalem).
One of the young men in the car was martyred Mustafa Nimir, and the driver, Ali Tayser Nimir (his cousin), was wounded, police said. There were no casualties among the occupation officers.
On Wednesday, occupation police spokeswoman Luba Samri said they were “now investigating the driver of the car, Ali Nimr, 20, for manslaughter, involuntary manslaughter, driving without a licence, driving under the influence of alcohol and reckless endangerment.”
The manslaughter investigation indicated police were holding Nimr responsible for the death of his cousin, who was shot dead by police.
Israel’s Channel 10 television broadcast video of the incident that appeared to show shots being fired after the car was stopped, with Mustafa Nimr already on the ground either wounded or dead.
The two men were returning to the camp after buying pizzas, a witness told Channel 10 on condition of anonymity.
