Aseel Abu ‘Oun

August 26, 2017: Aseel Tareq Abu ‘Oun, 8, was killed after being struck by an Israeli settler’s car in the Nablus district of the northern West Bank.

Palestinian medical sources said that the girl was run over near Furush Beit Dajan village, in the Nablus district.

The child’s uncle Dirar Abu ‘Oun, said the settler was driving on street more than 10 meters wide, while the child was walking along with her brother on the sidewalk.

“How can the Israeli driver accidentally ram her with his car on a very wide road, and she was on the sidewalk, designated for pedestrians” he stated, “The settler also tried to flee the scene when the child’s father, who was in a nearby agricultural land, rushed to her rescue, and prevented him from fleeing.”

Israel’s Magen David Adom national emergency service, accompanied by several army vehicles, arrived at the scene and evacuated the girl to the hospital, but she was pronounced dead on arrival.

Her corpse was later handed to her family before hundreds of Palestinians participated in her funeral ceremony, during evening hours of the same day.

The funeral procession took off from Rafidia Hospital, in Nablus, heading towards Jaba’ town, southwest of Jenin, in the northern part of the West Bank. Aseel was from Jaba’ town, south of Jenin. Source: IMEMC

Nawf Enfei’at

June 2, 2017: Nawf Eqab Enfei’at, 16, died from serious wounds she suffered a day earlier after Israeli soldiers shot her. They claimed she attacked and stabbed one of them at a military roadblock near Mavo Dotan settlement, southwest of Jenin city, in the northern part of the West Bank.

The child was transferred by the army to the Israeli Hillel Yaffe Medical Center in Hadera, where she was receiving treatment, until she succumbed to her wounds.

Her father said the family was shocked to hear about her death, especially since her lawyer told them that the Israeli military prosecutor’s office has scheduled a court hearing for her, for Sunday, June 4th.

He added that the Israeli army did not contact the family, even to inform them about a date to transfer her corpse back to them.

The family was not allowed to visit with her after her injury, and only knew she suffered serious wounds. Nawf was from Ya’bad, west of Jenin. Source: IMEMC

Fatima Taqatqa

May 20, 2017: Fatima Jibril Taqatqa, 15, died from serious wounds she suffered on March 15, 2017, when an Israeli soldier shot her after she lost control of a car she was driving and struck a median at the Etzion settlement junction south of Bethlehem in the West Bank.

Eyewitnesses said the child panicked after seeing the soldiers at the intersection, and lost control of her car, causing her to cross the median before striking metal bars protecting a bus stop in the opposite direction.

Fatima had no driver’s license and was not experienced in driving a car. She was shot after her car came to the complete halt.

The soldiers started firing at her, causing serious wounds, and claimed that the incident was not a traffic accident, but a “deliberate vehicular attack.” The incident did not lead to any other casualties and was captured by a surveillance camera.

The child was shot in the head and was moved to an Israeli medical center, where remained on life support until her death. Fatima was from Beit Fajjar town, south of Bethlehem. Source: IMEMC

Fatima Hajiji

May 7, 2017: Fatima Afeef Abdul-Rahman Hajiji, 16, was killed by Israeli soldiers and police officers near the entrance of Damascus Gate in Jerusalem after the police claimed she attempted to stab a security officer.

Eyewitnesses said Fatima was standing at least ten meters away from the nearest soldier or officer, and that one of the soldiers started shouting “knife, knife,” before five soldiers fired a barrage of bullets at the her.

Fatima was first shot with several live rounds in the chest, and the soldiers continued to fire at her after she fell onto the ground. Many live rounds also struck a Palestinian Taxi, parked nearby, causing damage and puncturing one of its tires.

Photos of the deceased show that she was shot and killed at quite a distance from the guard post, so even if she had been holding a knife (which is disputed), no security officers were in danger at the time when she was killed.

Following the fatal shooting of the child, the soldiers used pepper-spray against dozens of Palestinians who gathered in the area, especially close to Fatima.

The soldiers also assaulted many Palestinians, including children, in Sultan Suleiman Street, causing a child, identified as Mahmoud Abu Sbeih, 9, to fall from a high altitude after mounted officer chased him and many other Palestinians.

Hundreds of soldiers and mounted police officers were deployed in the area, closed many roads and alleys, and forced the Palestinians away.
