Three Palestinian students shot and wounded in Vermont, police say | 26 Nov 2023 | Three college students described as being of Palestinian descent were shot and wounded on Saturday evening in Burlington, Vermont, on their way to a family dinner. The head of the Palestinian mission to the UK, Husam Zomlot, identified the victims as Hisham Awartani, Tahseen Ahmed and Kinnan Abdalhamid, undergraduate students at Brown, Haverford and Trinity. Zomlot said on X that each of the victims was wearing the Palestinian keffiyeh when they were attacked, though authorities have stopped short of publicly discussing a possible motive for the triple shooting. Meanwhile, the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee added in a separate post on X: "We have reason to believe that the shooting was motivated by the three [victims] being Arab."
