Mahmoud Khaled Sa’id

January 22, 2020: Mahmoud Khaled Sa’id, 18, was killed along with two other teen boys by Israeli soldiers near the perimeter fence, in central Gaza, after the army alleged they breached the fence and hurled grenades.

The Israeli army claimed that the three managed to breach the fence and advanced approximately 400 meters, before they hurled a grenade, or an explosive, at a military post.

According to the Israeli army, the soldiers fired many live rounds, and shells, at the three Palestinians, leading to their death.

Palestinians in Gaza said the soldiers executed the three Palestinians, even though the soldiers clearly were not in any danger from the boys – especially since they ordered them to remove their clothes before killing them, the Maan News Agency has reported.

The three slain Palestinians have been identified as Mohammad Hani Abu Mandeel, 18, Salem Zuweid an-Na’ami, 18, and Mahmoud Khaled Sa’id, 18.

The Palestinian Health Ministry in the Gaza Strip reported that a farmer, identified as Mahdi Eid Ayyad Irmeilat, 36, was killed when an explosive object went off near him while he was working on his farmland, east of Rafah.

The Health Ministry stated that another Palestinian farmer was seriously injured in a similar explosion on a farmland, also east of Rafah.

The Palestinian Security Forces in Khan Younis and Rafah have initiated investigations into the explosions.

Although the origins of the explosive objects remain unknown, it is believed they were dropped by Israeli soldiers during their numerous invasions into Palestinian farmlands near the perimeter fence, as such incidents have occurred in the past leading to dozens of casualties, including fatalities.

It is worth mentioning that many Palestinians have been killed, and dozens were injured, by unexploded ordnance dropped by Israeli soldiers during military training on Palestinian lands in the West Bank, especially in the Jordan Valley.

Our correspondent indicated that another explosion occurred, during which a second farmer was injured by a suspected body explosion east of Rafah, while he was transferred to the hospital to complete the necessary treatment.

He stated that the two explosions that took place east of Rafah are the result of the remnants of the Israeli occupation forces, pointing out that the police and the competent security authorities are present at the scene to determine its circumstances.

Media sources in Gaza said the slain young man has been identified as Abdullah Ahmad Abu Teir (Abu Nasr ), 18, from Abasan al-Kabeera, in Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

His father called on international human rights groups to intervene and to secure the transfer of his corpse to his family for proper burial.

The Israeli army claimed that it observed an armed Palestinian near the perimeter fence in the southern Gaza Strip, before instructions were given to an Israeli drone to shoot him.

Eyewitnesses reported that Palestinian ambulances tried several times to reach the youth to save him, but Israeli forces opened fire towards them, preventing them from reaching the site.

They added that Israeli soldiers called on Palestinian ambulances via loudspeakers not move forward, and fired light bombs and announced a state of alert in the area, prior to coming forward with several bulldozers.

His family issued a statement mourning his death on the family Facebook Page.

Badawi Khaled al-Masalma

Badawi MasalmaNovember 30th, 2019: Badawi Khaled al-Masalma, 18, was shot and killed by Israeli forces in the town of Beit Awwa, west of Hebron City in the southern occupied West Bank.

The Palestinian News and Info Agency reported that Israeli soldiers opened fire towards three Palestinian civilians near Beit Awwa, seriously injuring one of them, identified as Badawi Khaled al-Masalma, 18.

He was left to bleed helplessly, as the soldiers denied access of Palestinian medics to the scene, and was announced dead of his critical wounds a few minutes later.

The Palestinian suffered multiple gunshot wounds to various parts of his body.

The Israeli army claimed the Palestinian “apparently threw Molotov cocktails.” After killing him, the soldiers took his body away.

The soldiers also abducted two other Palestinians and took them to an interrogation facility.

They were later identified as Odai Ismael Aqel al-Masalma and Mohamamd Osama al-Masalma.

Israeli Ynet News quoted the army claiming that the soldiers “were operating near settlements” in Hebron area, and that they allegedly “saw three Palestinians throwing Molotov cocktails.”

Fahed Mohammad al-Astal

November 29, 2019: Fahed Mohammad Walid al-Astal, 16, was killed by Israeli army fire when the army attacked protesters, hundreds of meters away from the perimeter fence, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

The incident took place when approximately twenty residents gathered on Palestinian lands, a few hundred meters from the fence.

The soldiers, stationed in their posts and army vehicles across the fence, fired live bullets, rubber-coated steel rounds, and high-velocity gas bombs at several Palestinians, killing Fahed, and injuring at least five others, east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

Dr. Ashraf al-Qedra, the spokesperson of the Health Ministry in Gaza, has confirmed that the soldiers killed Fahed with a live round in the abdomen.

Dr. al-Qedra added that the soldiers also shot at least five other Palestinians and caused many to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation.

The Palestinians gathered at the Great Return March encampment, at least 700 meters away from the perimeter fence, east of Khan Younis, marking International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.

It is worth mentioning that the Great Return March processions have been suspended for the third week, but have not been canceled.

The Committee for the Great Return March Processions said the temporary halt of the processions is not related to any “truce talks,” but to avoid further casualties after Israel threatened to escalate its already excessive use of force.

Over 348 Palestinians have been killed in the Gaza Strip, and about 18,500 others injured by Israeli forces since the beginning of the Great March of Return protests at Gaza’s border, on March 30, 2018.

The Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) documented 215 killings by Israel since the outbreak of the Great Return March protests on 30 March 2018, including 47 children, 2 women, 9 persons with disabilities, 4 paramedics and 2 journalists.

The PCHR also said that 14,713 were wounded, including 3,696 children, 387 women, 253 paramedics, and 218 journalists, noting that many of those wounded had sustained multiple injuries on separate occasions.

These figures do not include the Palestinians who were killed by Israeli bullets, missiles, and shells, during military offensives on Gaza.

Mohammad Nassar Al-Nawajaa

November 28th, 2019: Mohammad Nassar Al-Nawajaa, 56, from Yatta city, south of Hebron, was killed and his son Thaer was moderately injured before dawn on Thursday morning after their vehicle was hit by an Israeli military bulldozer in the Farsh Al Hawa area on the road leading to Taqoumia town, west of Hebron.

Israeli forces struck the car while they were exiting the city of Hebron after a massive demolition campaign before dawn on Thursday, killing the father and severely injuring the son.

The slain man and his son were driving to work in Jerusalem when their car was struck by the Israeli bulldozer.

The Israeli military bulldozer that struck their car was returning, along with the army jeeps, to a nearby military base, after demolishing four Palestinian homes in Beit Kahil, north of Hebron.

The demolished homes are owned by the families of four detainees, identified as Hamad Aref Asafra, his brother Qassem Saleh Asafra, in addition to Nasseer Saleh Asafra and Yousef Atiya Zohour.

The Israeli army claims that the four were involved in killing an off-duty soldier, identified as Dvir Sorek, 19, near the illegal Migdal Oz colony, in the occupied West Bank, on August 9th 2019. Israeli sources said Sorek was part of a program that combines Torah studies and military service.

Israeli military vehicles, including the armored Caterpillar D-9 bulldozers, frequently speed through Palestinian areas, and have on numerous occasions killed and injured Palestinian civilians in this way.

Sami Abu Diak

November 26, 2019: Sami Abu Diak, 37, died at an Israeli hospital after he was systematically denied specialized medical care, leading to serious complications that resulted in his death.

The Palestinian Detainees’ Committee confirmed, on Tuesday morning, that a detainee identified as Sami Abu Diak, 37, was only moved to Assaf Harofeh Israeli Medical Center after a sharp decline in his health.

It also said that its lawyers filed several appeals with Israeli courts, asking to allow his release to receive specialized medical treatment in Palestine, or abroad, but its requested were all denied.

“Sami was subjected to a deliberate policy denying him the right to adequate medical care,” the committee said, “Despite the serious decline in his health, and the constant complications, he was not provided with the urgently needed specialized care, and was only moved to a hospital when he neared death.”

It is worth mentioning that Sami Abu Diak, 37, was serving three life terms and an additional 30 years in prison.

He was taken prisoner on July 17, 2002, and was first diagnosed with intestinal cancer in August of 2015, and underwent surgery, after the prison authority moved him to Soroka Medical Center, but due to a misdiagnosis and a medical error, he faced serious complications, and some of his intestines were removed.

Abu Diak underwent various surgeries, and suffered further complications, including pulmonary and renal failures, in addition to cancer and skin poisoning, and his condition continued to deteriorate since then.

Before his death, Abu Diak’s final message was:

To those with a living conscience…

I am living my final hours and days, there is nothing I would like more than spending them near my mother; between my loved ones, I would love to utter my last breath in my mother’s arms; I do not wish to die cuffed and shackled,

I do not want to die in front of a jailor who loves death, and feeds on our pain and suffering,

Will my words even reach the ears and minds of leaders?!

I am telling you, if I die far away from my mother, I will never forgive you…
