Nachman Shmuel Mordoff

June 20, 2023: Nachman Shmuel Mordoff, 17, was killed by two Palestinians who also killed three other Israeli colonizers and wounded four near the illegal Israeli colony of Eli in the occupied West Bank.

Israeli sources said one of the Palestinians was shot and killed at the shooting scene, and the other was killed two hours later by Israeli soldiers.

The Israelis who were killed in the attack were identified as Elisha Antman, 18, from Eli colony; Harel Masoud, 21, from Yad Binyamin; Nachman Shmuel Mordoff, 17, from Ahiya, and Ofer Feierman, 63, from Eli colony.

Of the wounded, one was listed as seriously wounded, while three were wounded lightly.

The shooters were identified as Mohannad Faleh Shahada, 26, who was killed on site by an Israeli paramilitary colonial settler, and Khaled Mustafa Sabah, 24, who managed to escape from the scene of the shooting but was pursued by Israeli soldiers who killed him and wounded another Palestinian civilian.

According to eyewitnesses, the two Palestinians drove up to the gas station, entered a restaurant attached to the gas station, and shot at the Israelis who were dining there, killing four people and wounding four.

Israeli media reported that the two Palestinian shooters had been imprisoned together at the Israeli prison of Megiddo two and a half years ago.

After the attack,  Islamic Resistance Movement – Hamas, praised the shooting, saying the shooting was “a response to Israel’s crimes carried out at the Jenin refugee camp and the aggression against the Al-Aqsa Mosque. The struggle won’t stop until our people are free and independent.”

The Israeli army later invaded Orif town, south of Nablus, before storming the family homes of the two Palestinians and took measurements of the properties to prepare for demolishing them as part of Israel’s collective punishment policies, illegal under International Law and all related human rights treaties, including the Fourth Geneva Convention.

Israeli daily Haaretz said that while this attack could lead to accelerated operations to prepare for a large-scale military offensive in the West Bank, such an offensive would occur due to political leadership pressure.

Haaretz said the offensive, which would be dubbed Guardian of the Walls II, which refers to the original operation in 2021, could be different than what its name suggests but likely a limited offensive that would last for a few days “to calm things on the ground,” and to appease demands from the Israeli right-wing.

On Tuesday evening, the Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed the death of Nasser Saleh Mohammad Sinan, 55, whom Israeli soldiers shot with a live round in the head a month earlier in Jenin, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

On Tuesday dawn, the Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed the death of Amjad Aref Al-Ja’as, 48, who was shot and seriously injured by Israeli army fire Monday during the massive Israeli invasion of Jenin, leading to five deaths and more than 100 injuries; the soldiers killed Amjad’s son Wasim Amjad Aref Al-Ja’as, 19, on January 26, 2023.

On Monday evening, Israeli soldiers killed a young Palestinian man and injured two after the army invaded Husan village, west of Bethlehem, in the occupied West Bank.

Earlier Monday, the Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed that Israeli soldiers killed five Palestinians, including a child, and injured at least 100, including 23 who suffered life-threatening wounds, in Jenin and the Jenin refugee camp, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

Meir Tamari

May 30, 2023: Meir Tamari, 30, was killed in a drive-by shooting from a Palestinian car close to the illegal Hermesh colony near Tulkarem in the northwestern part of the occupied West Bank.

Israeli sources confirmed that Meir suffered several gunshot wounds to the chest and shoulders and received treatment from Israeli medics who rushed him to Hillel Yaffe Medical Center in Hadera but succumbed to his injuries.

The sources said the shooter fired at least seven live rounds from an M16 rifle and sped towards Jenin, in the northern West Bank.

Israeli Haaretz said Meir made his way to the entrance of Hermesh colony before he was evacuated to Hillel Yaffeh Medical Center in Hadera and was pronounced dead a few hours later.

Israeli soldiers installed many roadblocks in the area and initiated a massive search campaign in the area, looking for the Palestinian car.

The army said a Palestinian driver sped and bypassed a colonialist settlers’ car before firing several live rounds at it and fleeing the scene.

The Israeli army initiated a massive search campaign in the area and set up roadblocks in an effort to locate the shooters.

The Al-Aqsa Brigades, the armed wing of the Fateh movement, claimed responsibility for the shooting and said its fighters managed to escape unharmed.

It stated the shooting comes in retaliation to the escalating Israeli crimes against the Palestinian people, including the ongoing assassinations and killings of fighters and civilians.

The Brigades added that its fighters also exchanged fire with Israeli soldiers who invaded Nur Shams refugee camp at dawn and managed to detonate explosive charges near military vehicles.

On Monday evening, many paramilitary Israeli colonizers invaded Deir Dibwan town, east of the central West Bank city of Ramallah, attacked and injured several Palestinians, caused damage to cars, and burnt crops while Israeli soldiers fired at the Palestinians who tried to defend themselves.

Also, the paramilitary colonizers burnt Palestinian palm trees in Burqa town, northwest of Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

Earlier Monday, Israeli soldiers invaded Jenin city, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank, killed an intelligence officer, injured eight Palestinians, one seriously, and abducted six others.

The Palestinian Health Ministry has confirmed that the soldiers killed Ashraf Mohammad Amin Ibrahim, 38, after shooting him with two expanding bullets in the chest and the abdomen.

Israel’s colonies in the occupied West Bank, including those in and around occupied East Jerusalem, are illegal under International Law, the Fourth Geneva Convention, and various United Nations and Security Council resolutions. They also constitute war crimes under International Law.

Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention states: “The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.” It also prohibits the “individual or mass forcible transfers, as well as deportations of protected persons from occupied territory.”

Inga Avramyan

May 11, 2023: Inga Avramyan, 80, was killed when a rocket, launched from Gaza, struck an apartment block in the central Israeli city of Rehovot.

According to Israeli sources, the Israeli woman was killed, and eight people were injured, when a shell fired from the Gaza Strip hit an apartment building in Rehovot, in central Israel.

The woman was killed after being trapped under rubble that fell from the damaged building. Seven people were treated on-site with light injuries, and one woman in her sixties was taken to the hospital with a head injury.

The Israeli military spokesman, Daniel Hagari, stated that the Israeli anti-missile defense system known as the ‘Iron Dome’ (funded largely by the United States), had experienced a malfunction on Thursday night.

The Israeli military’s “Home Front Command” Search and Rescue Unit was joined by police, Fire and Rescue Services to search in the rubble for additional victims, but no other injured Israelis were found.

The shell had been fired after three straight days of Israeli bombardment of the Gaza Strip, which resulted in the deaths of 31 Palestinians, including a number of young children and women.

The chair of the Israeli Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, Yuli Edelstein, condemned the death of the Israeli man, saying, “My heart goes out to the family of the murdered person from the missile strike, and I am praying for the recovery of those injured.”

Edelstein went on to say, “The responsibility for the criminal and cowardly strike and murder lies with one source: Iran – the patron and financier of the Islamic Jihad. There lies the head of the snake, and we will work in every way to remove this threat from the people of Israel.”

Edelstein made no mention of the dozens of Palestinian civilians that Israeli bombs had killed over the past three days.

In addition to the shell that hit the building in Rehovot, three Israeli buildings in Sderot, near the border with Gaza, were hit by Palestinian shells, but no injuries were reported.

On the same day of her death, Israeli missiles killed nine Palestinians and injured many others, some seriously, after the army fired missiles at their homes and residential buildings.

The Italian citizen, lawyer from Rome who was vacationing in Tel Aviv, Alessandro Parini, 35, was killed in a car-ramming and shooting attack near a beach in Tel Aviv.

Alessandro Parini

Israeli daily, Haaretz, said Parini, an Italian lawyer from Rome who was vacationing in Tel Aviv, was killed, and five tourists were injured in what is believed to be a ‘car-ramming and shooting attack’ near a beach in Tel Aviv before the police killed the attacker, 44, Yousef Abu Jaber, 44, a married father of five daughters from Kafr Qassem.

Haaretz also said that the incident occurred at about 21:35 Friday when the attacker drove on the bike lane of “Charles Clore Park,” hitting six pedestrians.

Three persons suffered moderate wounds, including a man, 74 years of age, and a teenage girl, 17, and that the two other wounded persons, a 50-year-old man and a woman, 70, suffered mild injuries. Some of the wounded were British and Italian citizens.

According to Haaretz, an eyewitness said a vehicle sped after and entered a gas station nearby the incident before gunshots were heard, and then the vehicle which was used in the incident turned rightwards and rolled over.

Yousef’s family said they were shocked to hear about the incident and added that they would have prevented this from happening if they had known anything in advance and that he was a very quiet, respectful person and never had any ideological way of thinking.

A police officer and municipal inspectors who were near the scene of the alleged attack when the car overturned had initially claimed they saw the driver, Yousef Abu Jaber, “reach [for] a rifle-like object that was with him,” leading to initial suspicions that he had rammed Parini before proceeding to shoot him.”

Or Eshkar

March 21st, 2023: Or Eshkar, 32, died of wounds sustained on March 10th when he was shot and critically wounded by a gunman identified as Mo’taz Khawaja, 23, who was killed by police at the scene.

According to Israeli sources, a 23-year old Palestinian man, identified as Mo’taz Khawaja, allegedly opened fire on a group of Israelis on a crowded street in Tel Aviv.

Mo’taz was killed by Israeli police at the scene, and Or Eshkar, 32, was killed as a result of the attack, succumbing to his wounds 11 days later.

The three Israelis who were shot were three friends in their thirties. The three were rushed to the Ichilov hospital after medics administered emergency first aid to two of the men, who were lying on the ground.

The incident took place on Dizengoff Street in Tel Aviv.

The Tel Aviv Israeli police commander stated, “Tel Aviv naturally is always a target and despite our being on high alert, we had no prior knowledge of the attack”.

After taking Hawaja into custody, Israeli forces invaded his home village and raided his family home, ransacking belongings and assaulting his family members.

Just a few blocks from the shooting, a protest was taking place when the incident occurred. The protest was challenging the Israeli government’s corruption, and was not affiliated with the attack at the cafe.

One nearby resident told Ha’aretz that he heard eight shots fired, and came outside and saw two men lying on the ground.

Soon after the incident, Israelis gathered at the scene and chanted “Death to Arabs”, while waving the Israeli flag.

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu (the main target of the anti-corruption protesters), who was in Rome when the attack took place, stated, “There has been a grave incident in Tel Aviv, A terror attack. We commend the police and security forces fighting terrorists this evening and everywhere. I am certain this will not weaken our resolve to continue building our country and securing our future.”

In the three days prior to this shooting, Israeli troops killed ten Palestinians and wounded dozens more with live ammunition, mainly in Jenin, in the northern West Bank. No Israelis were killed in that time period.

Elan Ganeles

February 27, 2023: Elan Ganeles, 26, an Israeli paramilitary colonizer and former Israeli army soldier, was shot dead near Jericho, in the northeastern part of the West Bank.

He was transported by helicopter to the Israeli hospital Hadassah in Jerusalem but was pronounced dead.

Israeli sources identified the man as Elan Ganeles, 26, an American-Israeli who grew up in Hartford, Connecticut, and lived in a religious Kibbutz in the northern part of Israel.

The Times Of Israel said Elan returned to the U.S. to study at Colombia University and was attending a friend’s wedding.

Israeli media reported Genales was driving his car when he was shot by a single bullet in the upper body, causing him to lose control of his vehicle, which veered off the road and crashed. The incident took place on Road 90 near the city of Jericho.

Israeli forces closed the entrances to Jericho and invaded the Palestinian and surrounding areas to search for the perpetrators of the attack.

According to the Israeli military, the suspected gunmen allegedly set their car on fire, then fled in another vehicle toward Jericho.

The Islamic Jihad movement issued a statement praising the attack but did not claim credit for it. The group said, “the resistance operations continue, and the enemy will pay the price for all his crimes.”

The attack in Jericho followed a day of unbridled arson attacks by Israeli paramilitary settlers against Palestinian civilians in Huwwara, near Nablus in the northern West Bank.

Earlier on Monday, two Israeli Colonizers were killed in a shooting in Huwwara near Nablus.

On Sunday, a Palestinian civilian was killed by Israeli soldiers while in his home in Za’tara village. Sameh Aqtash, who was murdered by Israeli forces Sunday, was in Turkey two weeks before, volunteering with a rescue team to save lives after the earthquake.
