Majeda Obeid

January 26, 2022: Majeda Obeid, 61, was killed in Jenin refugee camp by Israeli forces during a massive invasion of the city and refugee camp.

Saeb was one of nine Palestinians, including siblings and one woman, killed during a massive offensive on Jenin city and the Jenin refugee camp in the northern West Bank.

Dozens of armored Israeli military vehicles carried out the invasion before the soldiers stormed several buildings and occupied their rooftops to use as sniper posts and monitoring towers while dozens of undercover soldiers infiltrated the Jenin refugee cam.

During the invasion, the army severed electricity and communications networks while dozens of soldiers surrounded and isolated entire areas.

Hundreds of Palestinians protested the massive invasions and ongoing onslaught on Jenin and its refugee camp before the soldiers fired a barrage of live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades,

Various armed resistance groups, including the Al-Qassam Brigades of Hamas, Al-Quds Brigades of the Islamic Jihad, and the Al-Aqsa Brigades of Fateh, said their fighters exchanged fire with the invading Israeli soldiers while several Palestinians hurled explosive charges at the army.

Palestinian fighters of the Al-Quds Brigades said they managed to identify a refrigeration that was altered to carry undercover forces and fired a barrage of live rounds and explosive charges at it.

The army also used Energa anti-tank bombs against a Palestinian home in the Jenin refugee camp.

The soldiers exchanged fire with armed resistance fighters in the property, killing several Palestinians and severely mutilating their bodies.

The Palestinian Health Ministry has confirmed that the soldiers killed nine Palestinians, including a woman and two siblings, adding that the soldiers also injured at least twenty, including four who suffered life-threatening wounds.

It is worth mentioning that the soldiers shot the woman, Majeda Obeid, 61, before ramming her with their jeeps and driving over her body.

The Israeli armored military vehicles also deliberately smashed and destroyed many parked cars and demolished structures, shops, and other facilities.

The Health Ministry added that medics from the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) were informed of more injuries but could not reach certain areas of Jenin and its refugee camp due to expensive Israeli military deployment and ongoing offensive.

Dozens of soldiers also surrounded the Jenin governmental hospital and fired many high-velocity gas bombs at it, some striking the children’s ward and the women’s ward, causing dozens of injuries, including many children.

The army also stormed and ransacked dozens of homes, buildings, and offices, causing serious damage to walls, furniture, and equipment, including computers and office supplies.

Palestinian Health Minister Dr. Mai Al-Kaila, called for an urgent meeting with the International Red Cross and World Health Organization, urging them to intervene and end the escalating Israeli crimes.

Dr. Al-Kaila also called on the International Community and all legal and human rights groups to end their silence and act on obliging Israel to respect and implement International Law and all related United Nations and Security Council resolutions.

The slain Palestinians have been identified as:

  1. Saeb Mahmoud Ezreiqi, 24, Jenin city.
  2. Ezzeddin Yassin Salahat, 26, Jenin refugee camp.
  3. Abdullah Marwan Al-Ghoul, 18, Jenin refugee camp.

Jenna Majdi Zakarna

December 11, 2022: Jenna Majdi Essam Zakarna, 15, was shot in the head and killed by Israeli snipers while she was standing on the roof of her home during an Israeli military invasion of Jenin.

The attack occurred before midnight when undercover Israeli soldiers, and numerous armored military vehicles, invaded Jenin.

Sources at the Khalil Suleiman Hospital in Jenin said the soldiers killed Jenna Majdi Essam Zakarna, 16, after shooting her with live fire in the head and face, and two in her chest.

Jenna’s family said the soldiers fatally shot her while standing on the rooftop of their home in the Eastern Neighborhood.

They said Jenna went to the rooftop of their home to bring her cat, and that is when the soldiers shot her.

“She went to the rooftop to bring cat down, but when she didn’t come back, her brother went to the roof and saw her bleeding on the ground and her car sitting next to her, she bled for at least 30 minutes before they found her” her uncle, Yasser Zakarna, told Palestine TV, “She was just fifteen, she was just a child who loved life… the soldiers shot her four times; two in the head and face, and two in her chest…they killed her childhood, she was a child, she wasn’t throwing stones or doing anything…. the soldiers fired at her to kill her… the occupation just keeps committing its crimes, just like what he saw a few days ago in Jenin…”

The Palestinian Center For Human Rights (PCHR) said: Half an hour after Israeli Occupation Forces’ withdrawal, a 15-year-old child namely Jana ‘Issam ‘Assaf Zakarna was found a dead body while blood surrounding her on her family house roof.

Furthermore, the soldiers caused damage to several parked cars and a shop during protests that took place in the Al-Bayader area in Jenin.

The Israeli army claimed it arrested a Palestinian reportedly “planning attacks against the soldiers and Israeli targets.”

Later, it turned out that she was shot with a live bullet in her head, and the neighborhood’s residents assume that the bullet was fired by one of the Israeli snipers stationed on the top of residential buildings, including an under-construction building comprised of seven floors opposite to Zakarna family house.

Jana was taken to Dr. Khalil Suliman Hospital in Jenin, where doctors confirmed her death after succumbing to a bullet injury in the head.”

According to PCHR’s fieldworker, Jana’s body was referred to the Forensic Medicine Institute at an-Najah National University in Nablus.

After the autopsy, it turned out according to what the doctors told PCHR’s fieldworker, that the shooting was from an M16 weapon from a distance of no less than 300 meters.

Also, it was found out that Jana was hit with 5 live bullets that penetrated her body; 4 of them hit her shoulder and neck while the fifth penetrated her head from the right side and exited the left side, and some shrapnel remained in her head. This proves that the shots were of the explosive type that is usually used by IOF.

The soldiers also stormed and ransacked many homes before abducting Hasan Ahmad Mer’ey, 30, Tha’er Jihad Hanthawi, 40, and his brother Mohammad, 33.

Furthermore, the Palestinian Health Ministry said the soldiers also shot a young man with a bullet in the leg before he was rushed to Ibn Sina Specialized Hospital suffering mild-to-moderate wounds.

Folla Rasmi Masalma

November 14, 2022: Folla Rasmi Abdul-Aziz Masalma, 15, was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers who fired a barrage of bullets into a car in which Folla was a passenger, killing her and severely wounding the driver of the vehicle.

Folla would have turned 16 on the day after she was killed, and had been preparing for her birthday party. She was in the passenger seat of a car that was driving along a road in the Palestinian town of Betunia when they saw a bunch of Israeli soldiers crouched behind military vehicles up ahead of them. The driver tried to turn around, to back up and go another way, but the Israeli soldiers began firing from two different locations.

An eyewitnesses said that the soldiers fired at the car in three separate barrages of bullets in a short time. In addition to shooting Folla in the head, the driver was also shot and wounded, but he managed to get out of the car heavily bleeding and raising his hands in the air.

The soldiers then approached the vehicle and, according to eyewitnesses, roughly pulled the heavily bleeding child from the car and dropped her on the ground. They then tore off her clothes and appeared to do a few chest compressions, then dragged her to one of the army jeeps. That jeep was full of soldiers, so they carried her roughly to a second jeep – all while she was bleeding heavily from the head wound their gunshots had caused. They then put her in a third military jeep, on the floor of the jeep, by the feet of the soldiers in that jeep.

According to an eyewitness, the driver “was bleeding apparently from his hand, before he stepped out of his car with his hands up in the air. The soldiers took him to one of their jeeps. The girl was then taken out of the car and placed on the ground. She has bleeding when the soldiers carried her but dropped her on the ground, then carried her again, and took her to one of the jeeps that was at a distance.”

“But the jeep they took her to already had the wounded young man who was detained by them, so they placed her on the ground, and then took her to another jeep that had no space, before moving her to another jeep where they placed her on its floor and drove away…. she was bleeding… I don’t think there was any more blood in her body by then…”

“The soldiers then bought Shawarma and were driving away to eat it, this is how coldblooded their murder is!”, he concluded, “The blood was everywhere, even on their shawarma they were eating…”

An eyewitness, Bakr Armoush, 30, told WAFA Palestinian News Agency that the attack occurred approximately at four at dawn when a military force was deployed in the area after invading it 30 minutes earlier to abduct two young men in the Schools’ Area.

He added that the car transporting the slain woman was driving slowly, and when the driver saw the soldiers approximately 200 meters away, he tried to back away before more Israeli soldiers, who were hiding in the dark, started firing at the car, which came to a complete stop.

Later on, Palestinian medics managed to regain custody of Fulla’s body, and brought the child’s corpse to the Ramallah governmental hospital, then transferred her to the Doura governmental hospital near Hebron, in preparation for funeral ceremony.

On Monday evening, the Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed that Israeli soldiers killed, at dawn, a teenage girl in Betunia town after shooting her with a live round in the head and added that the name Israeli military had published the incorrect name – misidentifying the child they had killed. The Palestinian Health Ministry was able to find out the actual name of the child and correct the mistake that was issued by the Israeli military.

Her family is originally from Beit Awwa town, west of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, but lives in Al-Biereh city near Ramallah.

The Health Ministry said the soldiers took the body of the slain girl and initially provided the Palestinian Civil Affairs Committee with a name of another woman who apparently had nothing to do with the incident.

Media sources said the soldiers shot Anas Hassouna, 26, before abducting him, and also abducted two Palestinians from their homes, Akram Silmi and Tareq Al-Emwasi.

According to the army, the soldiers were operating in the town and “signaled the driver to stop, but he accelerated before they opened fire,” wounding Anas, the driver, and killing the young woman in the same car, and added that it is reviewing the incident.

The army said it invaded Anata to arrest three “wanted” Palestinians from the town and one from nearby Betunia.

A surveillance video from the scene debunks the Israeli allegations and shows soldiers barricaded behind parked cars, opening fire at the car after the driver stepped on the brakes when he saw the army, and the car came to a complete halt.

The head of the Palestinian National Council, Rawhi Fattouh, denounced the Israeli crime in Betunia and said the soldiers, encouraged by incitement and racism from the Israeli political leadership, are ongoing with their crimes against the Palestinian people, knowing well there will be no accountability.

Ala’ Abdullah Qaddoum

Ala' QaddoumAugust 05, 2022: Ala’ Abdullah Qaddoum, 5, was killed by a missile dropped on her home by the Israeli military. She was one of eleven Palestinians killed in a barrage of Israeli missiles fired into Gaza in the middle of the afternoon on August 5th.

Dozens of airstrikes were carried out by Israeli forces in the span of a few minutes in different parts of the Gaza Strip. In addition to the 11 killed, at least 55 Palestinians were wounded and taken to local hospitals for treatment of moderate to severe wounds.

The airstrikes were apparently attempting to target certain Palestinian resistance leaders – but most of those killed in the airstrikes were civilians.

Ala’ was killed when the army fired many missiles into the Sheja’eyya neighborhood, east of Gaza, killing three Palestinians, including two civilians, Yousef Salman Mohammad Qaddoum, 24, Ala’ Abdullah Riyad Qaddoum, 5, and Emad Abdul-Rahim Ibrahim Shallah, 52.

The 5-year old girl was playing in front of her family’s home in the Rimal neighborhood in the center of Gaza city when the army fired missiles targeting The Borj Falasteen (Palestine Tower) building.

Her grandfather, Riyad Qaddoum, said Ala’ was just about to start kindergarten, happy with her new clothes, school bag, and supplies.

“Why, why did they have to kill her? Why did they have to bomb a civilian area and kill this innocent child?,” he asked, “Where is the world from all of this? Where are those who talk about human rights and protection for the civilian population…”

That airstrike that killed Ala’ came just after the Israeli airforce fired a missile into the fifth and sixth floors of Burj Falasteen (Palestine Tower) in the center of Gaza City in an assassination of a senior leader of the Islamic Jihad, Taiseer Mohammad al-Ja’bari, 52. In addition to al-Jabari, several civilians in the apartment building were killed in the airstrike.

The Palestine Tower consists of thirteen floors and contains many government offices and media centers. The bombing also caused damage to many surrounding buildings, stores, and commercial facilities.

The Israeli missiles also killed Ahmad Mazen Mahmoud Azzam, 25, in the Zeitoun neighborhood, one of the largest and most densely populated areas in Gaza city.

At approximately 16:20, the Israeli army fired an artillery shell that struck the home of Adnan Atiya al-Amour, killing his daughter Diana Mohammad al-Amour, 22.

The Israeli missiles also killed Mohammad Ahmad Nasrallah, 25, and injured his daughter in addition to two other Palestinians east of Beit Hanoun, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.

At approximately 16:25, an Israeli drone fired missiles into an area west of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, killing Fadel Mohammad Zo’rob, 30, and Mohammad Hasan al-Bayok, 35, in addition to wounding seven other Palestinians, including two children. The attacks also caused damage to a Palestinian ambulance.

At approximately 16:50, two Palestinians, including one child, were injured after the Israeli army bombed the al-Brazil neighborhood, south of Rafah, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

The army also carried out at least ten airstrikes targeting resistance centers and many residential neighborhoods in Rafah, causing excessive damage.

On Saturday, the Israeli army continued its offensive on the Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip, for the second day, by firing more missiles and shells into several areas of the coastal region, killing one Palestinian and wounding many others, including three who suffered serious wounds.

The slain Palestinian has been identified as Tamim Ghassan Hijazi, 24, from the az-Zanna area in Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

Media sources said the army fired missiles into several buildings in Gaza city, Khan Younis, in the southern part of the coastal region, and many areas in the central and northern parts of the Gaza Strip.

The Palestinians Center For Human Rights (PCHR) said its field researchers and teams are still documenting and validating the latest incidents and casualties, adding that the Israeli offensive could take a long time, as stated by Israeli military leaders and government officials.

The PCHR condemned the Israeli offensive, the extrajudicial assassinations, and the constant targeting of Palestinian civilians in violation of International Humanitarian Law and all related international treaties.

The offensive on Gaza started when the army assassinated Tayseer al-Ja’bari, the leader of the Al-Quds Brigades, after firing missiles at his office in Gaza city.

The army also carried out several airstrikes and artillery shelling targeting many areas in Gaza city, especially the Sheikh Ejleen area that was hit with at least fifteen Israeli missiles, in addition to Khan Younis and Rafah, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, and several areas in northern Gaza.

The offensive is still ongoing; some of the slain Palestinians are members of armed resistance groups in the Gaza Strip.

Palestinian factions in Gaza vowed retaliation and fired dozens of shells into many areas in the southern part of the country.

According to Israeli sources, rocket sirens sounded in most southern and central areas, including Tel Aviv.

Israeli Defense Minister, Benny Gantz, said that he approved the deployment of 25.000 reservists according to what he called “operation needs,” an issue that indicates an upcoming larger offensive on the Gaza Strip.

A senior military official claimed the strikes on Gaza “targeted Islamic jihad fighters,” and alleged that the group is preparing for an attack against Israel.”

Donyana Adnan al-Amour

August 05, 2022: Donyana Adnan Atiya al-Amour, 22, was killed by a missile dropped on her home by the Israeli military. She was one of eleven Palestinians killed in a barrage of Israeli missiles fired into Gaza in the middle of the afternoon on August 5th.

Dozens of airstrikes were carried out by Israeli forces in the span of a few minutes in different parts of the Gaza Strip. In addition to the 11 killed, at least 55 Palestinians were wounded and taken to local hospitals for treatment of moderate to severe wounds.

The airstrikes were apparently attempting to target certain Palestinian resistance leaders – but most of those killed in the airstrikes were civilians.

The army fired many missiles into the Sheja’eyya neighborhood, east of Gaza, killing three Palestinians, including two civilians, Yousef Salman Mohammad Qaddoum, 24, Ala’ Abdullah Riyad Qaddoum, 5, and Emad Abdul-Rahim Ibrahim Shallah, 52.

The 5-year old girl was playing in front of her family’s home in the Rimal neighborhood in the center of Gaza city when the army fired missiles targeting The Borj Falasteen (Palestine Tower) building.

Her grandfather, Riyad Qaddoum, said Ala’ was just about to start kindergarten, happy with her new clothes, school bag, and supplies.

“Why, why did they have to kill her? Why did they have to bomb a civilian area and kill this innocent child?,” he asked, “Where is the world from all of this? Where are those who talk about human rights and protection for the civilian population…”

That airstrike that killed Ala’ came just after the Israeli airforce fired a missile into the fifth and sixth floors of Burj Falasteen (Palestine Tower) in the center of Gaza City in an assassination of a senior leader of the Islamic Jihad, Taiseer Mohammad al-Ja’bari, 52. In addition to al-Jabari, several civilians in the apartment building were killed in the airstrike.

The Palestine Tower consists of thirteen floors and contains many government offices and media centers. The bombing also caused damage to many surrounding buildings, stores, and commercial facilities.

The Israeli missiles also killed Ahmad Mazen Mahmoud Azzam, 25, in the Zeitoun neighborhood, one of the largest and most densely populated areas in Gaza city.

At approximately 16:20, the Israeli army fired an artillery shell that struck the home of Adnan Atiya al-Amour, killing his daughter Diana Mohammad al-Amour, 22.

Sa’diyya Farajallah

July 02, 2022: Sa’diyya Farajallah, 68, died in an Israeli prison less than seven months after Israeli soldiers abducted her. Sa’diyya was the oldest female detainee imprisoned by Israel.

According to the Palestinian Prisoners Society, Sa’diyya, from Ethna town west of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, died at the ad-Damoun Israeli prison.

The PPS stated that Farajallah, a married mother of eight, was the oldest Palestinian female detainee in Israeli prisons and that she was abducted by the Israeli soldiers on December 18, 2021, near the Ibrahimi Mosque in Hebron, after she was injured when many illegal Israeli colonizers attacked her.


Update: On Thursday August 11, 2022, Israel released her corpse before the Palestinians held her funeral procession after the deceased was examined by specialist at the Al-Ahli hospital in Hebron. Read More


The Israeli authorities prevented her family from visiting her throughout her imprisonment; she died at the Damoun Israeli prison.

The woman had diabetes and high blood pressure, diabetes, a heart condition, and various chronic illnesses, and was taking various medications before she was taken, prisoner.

Akram Samara, a lawyer of the Palestinian Detainees Committee, said he saw her last time last Tuesday in court, adding that she was in a wheelchair, unable to speak, and looked very fragile.

Samara said the Israeli authorities refused to provide medical reports detailing her health condition and were denying her the right to medical treatment during her imprisonment.

Her family held Israel accountable for her death, especially since she was denied access to medical attention and her medications and called on the International Community to act and help save the lives of the Palestinian detainees, especially the ones holding extended hunger strikes demanding an end to their arbitrary Administrative Detention without charges or trial.

Sa’diyya died at the Damoun Israeli prison after eight months in prison, including two months in solitary confinement despite her health and chronic conditions.

Her brother, Taiseer Farajallah, demanded an autopsy to know the cause of death and added that the soldiers repeatedly struck and beat his sister, after they claimed she tried to stab a colonizer, near the Ibrahimi Mosque while she was on her way to visit her two married daughters, living in the Old City of Hebron.

“My sister was a woman who struggled to provide for her family despite the dire financial situation,” Taiseer stated.

Sa’diyya’s son, Mohammad, described what happened to his mother as a crime and that his family was not allowed to visit her, adding that when they saw her in court and were not allowed to talk to her, she looked very weak and extremely ill, even unable to speak.

Her death brings the number of detainees who died in Israeli prisons since 1967 to 230.

The Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) called for an immediate investigation into her death.

The PPS quoted a statement by the Palestinian Prisoners’ Society stating that a court hearing was held last Tuesday for Sa’diyya, who is the eldest among the female prisoners detained in the Israeli jails.

The statement added that she attended the hearing in a wheelchair, and her lawyer had already asked the Israeli prison service to refer her to a doctor after her medical examinations showed that her health condition was getting worse due to high diabetes and pressure.

“The Israeli Prosecution asked in the hearing that she should be sentenced to five years in prison and 15,000 shekels fine, in compensation; however, no definitive sentence has been so far issued,” the PPS said.

Sa’diyya was among twenty-nine female detainees, including Maysoun Mousa from Bethlehem, who was taken prisoner in 2015 and was sentenced to fifteen years in prison, in addition to Shorouq al-Badan and Bushra Tawil, who are held under the Administrative Detention orders without charges or trial.

Nofouth Hammad

Israel is also still holding captive ten Palestinian mothers and a female child Nofouth Hammad, 15, who was tortured during interrogation.

Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah held Israel responsible for her death and called on the International Community to investigate her death and ensure the release of all female detainees, children, elders, and ailing political prisoners.
