Ronen Hananya

October 29, 2022: Ronen Hananya, 50, was killed in a shooting attack near the Kiryat Arba illegal colony in Hebron city, in the southern part of the West Bank.

Another wounded Israeli, in his fifties, suffered critical wounds in the shooting carried out by a Palestinian who was also killed.

A surveillance video released to Israeli media shows the Palestinian walking through the street holding a rifle and shooting before an Israeli car of an off-duty soldier, accompanied by a security agent working for the Kiryat Arba colony, sped toward him.

The car rams into the man at high speed, crashing his body and the car into a wall. It then backs away, and an Israeli settler jumps out and fires multiple rounds at the Palestinian lying on the ground.

The Palestinian has been identified as Mohammad Kamel Al-Jabari, 35, from Hebron city. The army took his corpse after refusing to release Mohammad’s body to Palestinian medics.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) said its medics rushed to the area to provide essential aid to Mohammad, but the soldiers fired many live rounds at their ambulance, wounding a medic, Ahmad Abu Khaled, who was shot with a live round in the shoulder, and causing damage to the ambulance.

An Israeli medic with the medical association Magen David was injured in the incident and was brought to the Israeli hospital in Shaare Tzedek Medical Center.

Another Palestinian was also wounded by gunshot fire. He was only identified as a 37-year-old man, and his injuries were described as moderate.

Israeli daily Haaretz said three Israelis, including the son of the man who was killed, were taken to Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem.

It added that the seriously wounded Israeli man, Ronen, remained in a critical condition until he succumbed to his wounds.

Haaretz also said that a fourth Israeli, Ofer Ohana, a Magen David Adom medic, was transferred to the Shaare Zedek Medical Center, where he remained unconscious and on life support.

Initial reports claimed that the attack targeted the home of right-wing Israeli politician Itamar Ben-Gvir, who lives in Kiryat Arba, but an Israeli military spokesperson said that this was not a targeted attack on Ben-Gvir but appeared instead to be targeting an Israeli military guard post.

While some Israeli reports claimed Mohammad was a member of Hamas, his family said he wasn’t involved with any party or group and was an Islamic studies teacher and a married father of two children.

His older brother is an officer with the Palestinian General Intelligence, controlled by the Fateh movement of President Mahmoud Abbas, and his middle brother is a member of Hamas and was one of many Palestinians who were exiled from the West Bank to Gaza as part of the Shalit prisoner swap agreement.

Media sources said Mohammad was also receiving treatment for abdominal cancer, which reached an advanced stage.

After the soldiers killed Mohammad, the army installed many roadblocks in Hebron and isolated several neighborhoods before storming and ransacking many homes.

Israeli colonizers also attacked many homes and fired several live rounds at them, despite constant Israeli military deployment in the area and while a military helicopter was hovering overhead.

Just before midnight, the soldiers closed all roads leading to Hebron city, the Al-Fawwar refugee camp, Farsh Al-Hawa junction, Beit Einoun junction, and Al-Fahs junction, and the areas of Al-Harayeq and Khirbat Qalqas.

On October 28, Israeli soldiers killed two Palestinian medics, Emad Abu Rashid, 47, and Ramzi Sami Zabara, 35, near the Huwwara military roadblock south of Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

Ido Baruch

October 11, 2022: Ido Baruch, 20, an Israeli soldier who succumbed to serious wounds he suffered in a shooting targeting a large group of colonizers, guarded by dozens of soldiers while marching near Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

The Israeli army said the injured soldier suffered a serious gunshot wound to the upper body before he received treatment at the scene and was rushed to an Israeli hospital but succumbed to his serious wounds.

Israeli sources said the soldier was rushed to Meir Medical Center after suffering a gunshot wound to the shoulder and added that the bullet then traveled to his chest cavity, causing him excessive bleeding that resulted in his death despite all efforts to revive him.

The army said the shooting occurred near the colony’s eastern gate and stated that the wounded soldier was shot in the shoulder; his condition was initially described as mild but later deteriorated and was classified as serious.

The shooting happened after dozens of colonizers marched near the illegal Shvei Shomron colony, built on stolen Palestinian lands west of Nablus.

According to a preliminary investigation by the Israeli army, a Palestinian opened fire from a moving car near the colony before the vehicle sped away.

Following the shooting, the Israeli army pushed more troops into the area, invaded all nearby Palestinian villages and towns, and initiated a massive search campaign for the shooter and the car. The army also closed all military roadblocks leading to Nablus.

On October 10, the Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed the death of a child, Mahmoud Mohammad Sammoudi, 12, who, on September 28, was shot and seriously injured by Israel army fire when the soldiers also killed four young Palestinian men in Jenin and Jenin refugee camp in the northern West Bank.

The four Palestinians killed on the day of the invasions of Jenin and its refugee camp were identified as Mohammad Hisham Abu Na’sa, 25, Abdul-Rahman Fathi Khazem, 27, Ahmad Nathmi Alawna, 24, and Mohammad Mahmoud Barahma, 30.

On October 9, the Israeli army announced the death of Sgt. Noa Lazar, 18, an Israeli soldier who was shot by a Palestinian at a military roadblock near Shu’fat, in occupied Jerusalem, on Saturday evening.

Noa Lazar

October 09, 2022: Noa Lazar, 18, died from serious wounds she sustained a day earlier when she was shot by a Palestinian at a military roadblock near Shu’fat, in occupied Jerusalem, in the West Bank.

The army said the soldier Sgt. Noa Lazar, 18, was a member of the Israeli army’s Military Police Erez Battalion.

Noa and an armed civilian guard were injured and were rushed to a hospital in Jerusalem for medical treatment before she underwent brain surgery but succumbed to her serious wounds.

Israeli sources said the wounded guard also underwent surgery by neurosurgeons overnight, adding that he is still in critical condition, hooked to a ventilator.

According to the Israeli sources, the Palestinian apparently arrived at the roadblock on foot, approximately at 9 p.m., before he fired several live rounds and reportedly ran towards Shu’fat refugee camp.

A video surveillance footage shows the Palestinian getting out of a car and casually walking towards the roadblock before opening fire from a handgun wounding the two and running away toward the refugee camp before the army initiated a large search campaign.

Jerusalem District Police Commander Doron Turgeman said the identities of the shooter and two other Palestinians involved in the incident are known to police.

Israeli Public Security Minister Omer Barlev arrived at the shooting scene and vowed to capture the shooter “alive or dead,” adding that the shooter was 22, from Shu’fat.

The Israeli army also said the soldiers abducted three Palestinians, in their twenties, from Shu’fat and Beit Hanina, allegedly for being “accomplices in the shooting.”

According to the Israeli army radio, the soldiers arrested three members of the Palestinian believed to be the shooting, adding that the man, believed to be the driver of the car, turned himself in to the police, but said the driver is not believed to be involved of the shooting or had any prior knowledge of it.

A day earlier, Israeli soldiers killed Ahmad Mohammad Hussein Daraghma, 24, and Mahmoud Moayyad Sous, 18, in Jenin, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

Their deaths also came just a day after the Israeli army killed two Palestinians teens, Adel Ibrahim Adel Daoud, 14, and Mahdi Mohammad Ladadwa, 17, and injured dozens of Palestinians near Qalqilia and Ramallah, in the northern and central parts of the occupied West Bank.
