Mustafa Yassin Falna

January 6, 2022: Mustafa Yassin Falna, 25, was killed after being rammed by an Israeli vehicle while heading to his work in Jerusalem.

The incident took place approximately at six in the morning, on Road #443 near Maccabim roadblock, west of Jerusalem.

The young man, a married father of an 18-month-old baby, was crossing the road while on his way to work when he was killed, his family said.

The Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates said in a statement that “This situation confirms not only the racism of the occupying state in dealing with the Palestinians but also the absolute disregard for their lives as if they have no value.”

It added, “We consider such incidents, which have become a phenomenon that is repeatedly occurring without any real investigation of follow-up by the occupation police or the army, as crimes, whether intentional and deliberate or by negligence and indifference shown by the occupying police, even if they are ordinary traffic accidents involving a Palestinian.”

On Thursday at dawn, the soldiers killed a Palestinian man, identified as, Bakeer Mohammad Hashash, 21, with live rounds near the Balata refugee camp, east of Nablus, in the northern occupied West Bank.

On Wednesday, an elderly Palestinian activist, identified as Sheikh Suleiman al-Hathalin, 75, was critically injured after being run over by an Israeli military truck during nonviolent in Masafer Yatta, south of Hebron, in the southern West Bank.

The elderly Palestinian man suffered a very serious skull fracture and is in hospital in critical condition.
