According to eyewitnesses, the Israeli attacker was driving a large truck when he struck the woman’s car, throwing her out of the vehicle. The attacker then ran her over and killed her, before fleeing the scene.

The slain Palestinian woman was a teacher at the Rashayda School.

The Israeli Police did come to the scene, but only to remove all security camera footage from a house overlooking the area where the incident took place.

The incident led to protests, as dozens of residents, mainly youngsters, took to the streets, and hurled stones at the Israeli army jeeps, while the soldiers attacked them with live fire, rubber-coated steel bullets and gas bombs.

The soldiers then detained a Palestinian teen, before handcuffing and blindfolding him, and later shot him from a very close range, after he attempted to escape while he was still cuffed and blindfolded.

The shooting took place following the funeral procession of the Palestinian woman.

A picture was posted on social media showing the young man, who was cuffed and blindfolded trying to run away, before the soldiers shot him.

A video posted on social media (below) shows the teen on the ground when witnesses lifted the teen’s limp body, bleeding heavily, carrying him from the scene, as the Israeli soldier stood pointing the same pistol at another young Palestinian man.

Ishaq Abdul-Mo’ti Eshteiwi

April 15, 2019: Ishaq Abdul-Mo’ti Eshteiwi, 16, died of injuries sustained when he was shot by Israeli forces east of Rafah near the border fence on April 3rd.

After he was shot, the injured boy was grabbed by Israeli soldiers who thrust him into a military vehicle and took him to a military base in Israel. The Israeli military claimed that Ishaq and two other children were attempting to escape over the border fence when they were shot.

When the incident occurred, one of the teens suffered fatal injuries when he was shot. The Israeli military reported that Ishaq suffered “mild injuries” after he was shot at close range by their sharpshooters, and the third boy was taken onto custody without reported injury.

But he has remained in Israeli custody since being shot, and his family has not been allowed to see him, according to local sources.

His parents were informed on Sunday that Ishaq had succumbed to his injuries. It is unknown whether further injuries had been inflicted upon him while in Israeli military custody due to “harsh interrogation”/torture. Injured Palestinians detained by Israeli forces have frequently reported that Israeli forces torture them while in custody.

On the same day that Ishaq was killed, a 14-year old Palestinian boy was found, after his family had reported him missing for three days, in an Israeli prison. Ramez Tamimi, 14, was kidnapped by Israeli soldiers from his village, Dir Nitham, north of the central West Bank city of Ramallah, and was eventually found in ‘Ofer’ prison, and his family was never informed.

Mohammad Abdul-Mon’em Abdel-Fattah

April 2, 2019: Mohammad Abdul-Mon’em Abdel-Fattah, 23, was killed when an Israeli settler opened fire on him near Beita town, south of Nablus.

In addition to Mohammad, another Palestinian was shot and injured, identified as Khaled Salah Rawajba, a 26-year-old resident of the village of Rojeeb, east of Nablus. He was shot in the abdomen and taken to Rafidia hospital in Nablus.

The Israeli settler who shot and killed the young man tried to claim that “he had a knife” – but video footage taken by another Israeli settler on the scene, showing the brutal and callous treatment of Adel-Fattah’s body after he was killed, shows that there was no weapon.

In the video, a soldier and a settler are seen kicking the young man’s corpse, flipping him over and going through his pockets, finding nothing.

According to eyewitnesses, the claim of an attempted stabbing were completely false. They said that Mohammad was a truck driver who was waiting at the checkpoint when the Israeli settler closed the road with his car. Khaled then got out of his car and tried to tell the settler to move. But the Israeli settler began shooting.

Khaled Rawajba, an employee at an auto repair shop on the side of the road, heard the altercation and stepped out of his workplace to see what was happening. He was then shot as well, and seriously wounded.

Mohammad Ali Dar Adwan

April 1, 2019: Mohammad Ali Dar Adwan, 23, was shot and killed by Israeli forces who invaded Qalandia refugee camp, north of occupied Jerusalem, on Monday, and attacked local protesters, wounding at least two other young men.

The Palestinians gathered in the streets and alleys of the refugee camp, and protested the invasion, while several protesters hurled stones at the armored military jeeps.

The soldiers fired many live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs and concussion grenades at the protesters.

Medical sources said the soldiers shot three young men in the refugee camp, and the al-Matar adjacent neighborhood.

Adwan was near his home when he was shot and killed – it was unclear if he was participating in the protest or not.

The WAFA Palestinian News Agency said Mohammad ran towards his home due to the intensity of the live rounds fired by the soldiers, but once he approached his home several soldiers were standing right in front of it, and opened fire at him.

WAFA added that the soldiers shot the young man with more than 10 bullets, before dragging his body into their jeep, and prevented medics from reaching him to provide aid, until he had passed away from blood loss.

The Israeli forces then handed Adwan’s corpse to medics with the Palestinian Red Crescent Society, who transferred his body to the Ramallah governmental hospital.

His funeral ceremony was held at noon after his body was transferred via ambulance to his home, where thousands of Palestinians gathered and participated in his funeral procession and ceremony.

During the invasion of the camp, Israeli forces stormed the home of the Rajab family, and abducted three brothers: Ibrahim Rajab, Yousef Rajab, and No’man Rajab.

The killing of Adwan comes after a brutal crackdown on the Palestinian Land Day protest on Saturday in Gaza, in which three Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces. Two of those killed were 17 years old.

It is worth mentioning that the soldiers also invaded the nearby city of Betunia, in addition to the villages of Qarawat Bani Zeid and Kafr Ein.

The soldiers searched many homes, and summoned for interrogation a former political prisoner, identified as Mahran Raja Saif, after invading his home in Qarawat Bani Zeid village.
