Mohammad Ali Hasan an-Na’em

February 23, 2020: Mohammad Ali Hasan an-Na’em, 27, was shot and killed by Israeli forces, who then repeatedly crushed his body using an armored bulldozer as a weapon, then used the blade of the bulldozer to lift the corpse of Mohammad from where it lay on the ground, then swing the corpse back and forth in the air.

The Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad, has reported that the slain Palestinian was one of its members.

The Brigades stated that the Palestinian has been identified as Mohammad Ali Hasan an-Na’em, 27, from Khan Younis.

The slain Palestinian was unarmed and wasn’t even in military attire when the soldiers attacked him, along with many residents,  with their bulldozers and live rounds.

In addition to killing Mohammad, the Israeli forces injured four, on Palestinian lands, in Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli army claimed that its soldiers observed two Palestinians approaching the perimeter fence, before placing an explosive device.

It alleged that the soldiers then rushed to the scene and fired live ammunition at the two Palestinians, causing the explosive device to explode.

Israeli officials frequently make outrageous claims about Palestinians they kill, which are often proven later to be false.

Media sources in Gaza said several Palestinians tried to reach the two Palestinians to provide them with the needed medical care and move them to a hospital, but a military bulldozer sped towards them and drove over the corpse of the slain Palestinian before scooping it using the bulldozer’s plow.

The second Palestinian was injured with a live round in his leg and was rushed to a hospital in Khan Younis after the Palestinians managed to evacuate him before the soldiers could reach him.

The Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza has reported that two other Palestinians were shot and injured by Israeli army fire while attempting to help evacuate the wounded.

Israeli sources initially quoted the army claiming its soldiers killed two Palestinians in the incident.

Despite the military claims, a video from the scene shows the corpse of the young man on Palestinian land in an area quite a distance away from the fence.

The bulldozer was speeding toward the Palestinians to prevent them from retrieving the corpse of the slain young man.

Mohammad was from Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip. Source: IMEMC
