Marwan Khaled Nasser, aged 25 or 26, was killed on the Sunday morning after ‘approaching’ the border with ethnically cleansed Palestine 1948 near Beit Hanoun in the northern part of the tiny coastal enclave.
Based on some reports Nasser was directly walking towards the border when attacked by Israeli occupation soldiers.
Early reports claimed that Nasser was killed in shelling by tanks, but this might have mistaken for Israeli occupation attacks on nearby resistance observation posts. According to Israeli occupation he was shot dead after allegedly ‘opening fire’.
Israeli occupation used the dehumanizing term ‘neutralized’ to describe his killing. Unlike in the case of Saturday’s victims, Nasser’s body was recovered by Palestinian paramedics.
A photograph of Marwan Nasser’s body in the morgue shows him with a resistance bandana on his forehead, but the lack of it in earlier photographs show that it was placed on his body as it was being prepared for being put in a morgue refrigerator. Same bandana and what might be a flag of a minor Islamist faction can be seen on his body in photographs taken of his funeral procession, which took place later on Sunday.
