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.

Omar was suspected of killing two Israelis on Sunday, two days prior.

The Israeli army said that “it received information about the location of the Palestinian” suspected of the attack, and identified him as Omar Abu Laila, 19, before the soldiers surrounded the property and exchanged fire with him, reportedly after he refused to surrender.

Israeli daily Haaretz has reported that Abu Laila is suspected of killing Rabbi Ahiad Ettinger and Staff Sgt. Gal Keidan, after he reportedly stabbed them on March 17, 2019.

Since 1967, when Israel occupied the West Bank and Jerusalem, more than 600,000 Israeli settlers have come to live in the illegal settlements built there.

The international community considers the establishment of Israeli settlements in the occupied territories to be illegal under international law, in violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949, which states: “The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.”

Israeli settlers, under the protection of heavily armed forces, routinely attack Palestinians in the territories, especially in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, demolishing their homes and vandalizing their properties.

On March 26th, 2019, the Israeli military issued a military order to Omar’s parents informing them that their home will be demolished, and that they have until March 31st to appeal the decision.

His mother said that dozens of soldiers surrounded the property before invading it, and conducted a violent search, in addition to tearing his posters and pictures, before handing them the military order.
