Ali Burqan

August 28th, 2021: Ali Burqan, 17, was killed in an accident that took place during a home demolition ordered by Israeli authorities. He was killed when a wall collapsed on him, while he and many residents were helping their neighbors who were forced by Israel to demolish their home in occupied Jerusalem.

Maan said the boy, identified as Ali Burqan, 17, was killed when a wall collapsed on him during the manual demolition of a home in the al-Marwaha Street in Beit Hanina, north of Jerusalem.

It added that dozens of Palestinians were helping the family who was forced to demolish its home under the pretext of not being licensed by the City council in occupied Jerusalem.

The family was forced to demolish its home to avoid the excessively high fines and fees which they would incur if the City Council demolished the property using its workers and equipment.

On Friday, a Palestinian family in occupied Jerusalem was also forced to demolish its home in Silwan town, south of the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Israel’s policy of rejecting building permit applications from Palestinians started many years ago and has led to the displacement of hundreds of Palestinian families following the demolition of their homes.

Many Palestinians in the occupied city resort to constructing their homes without permits due to Israel’s continued refusal to issue these permits, while the growing families find themselves living in small homes or apartments.

At the same time, Israel continues to build and expand its illegal, segregated colonies in the occupied West Bank, including Jerusalem, in direct violation of International Law, the Fourth Geneva Convention in addition to various United Nations and Security Council resolutions.

On Wednesday, the soldiers demolished an under-construction Palestinian home in Silwan, a home on the al-Walaja village, northwest of Bethlehem, and a car repair facility in addition to the foundation of an under-construction mosque, a well, and a toilet room, in Hebron, in the southern West Bank.

According to data by the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions (ICAHD), demolished 865 structures, displacing 1,014 people, and directly affecting 5,615 people. In addition to demolishing 2,586 buildings in the Negev, in the year 2020.

Ala’ Khaled Mohammad Zahran

Ala ZahranJune 22, 2021: Ala’ Khaled Mohammad Zahran, 37, was killed by Israeli paramilitary settlers in Nablus, in the northern West Bank.

After a Palestinian security officer was killed, on Tuesday at dawn, security sources stated the man was killed by Israeli colonialist settlers, however, the Palestinian Authority is investigating whether his death could be attributed to a crime rather than the conflict.

The Palestinian Internal Security and other security devices are trying to ascertain whether the man was killed by the colonists, especially after reports of Israeli colonist settlers opening fire at him or his car, before he was assaulted, or if his murder is criminally motivated.

The Internal Security is not ruling out that his death was carried out by colonialist settlers, but stated it is also pursuing several other leads.

Initially, Palestinian security sources said the man, Ala’ Khaled Mohammad Zahran, 37, was ambushed and killed by colonialist settlers, but are now trying to ascertain other related factors that could alter this conclusion.

The investigations are still ongoing.

It is worth mentioning that Zahran was ambushed and lynched near Deir Sharaf, west of Nablus in northern West Bank. The slain officer is from Nablus, also in northern West Bank.
