In response to the attack, the spokesperson for the Hamas party, Fazi Barhoum, told reporters that this “Israeli strike is a message of escalation and aggression against the Gaza Strip in an attempt to steer attention from brave acts by Palestinians in the West Bank, actions that have embarrassed Israel and caused embarrassment in the Israeli political arena. Resistance forces in Gaza will not let the Strip become an Israeli target for settling accounts.”

Ala Khader al-Hreimi

August 16, 2019: Ala Khader al-Hreimi, 26, was shot dead in a barrage of bullets fired by Israeli soldiers after the car he was driving hit a car driven by Israeli colonist settlers on the highway between Bethlehem and Hebron.

The Israeli army claimed the soldiers fired many live rounds at his car after he reportedly deliberately rammed two Israeli colonists near Etzion illegal colony. Israeli media sources said the Palestinian driver was “neutralized” following the vehicular collision.

The Palestinian Health Ministry and the District Civil Coordination Office reported that the Palestinian who was killed by Israeli soldiers near Etzion, south of the West Bank city of Bethlehem, was identified as Ala Khader al-Hreimi, 26.

Ala, a construction worker, is a former political prisoner who was detained by Israel for two years and was previously shot by Israeli soldiers.

Following his death, the soldiers summoned his brother, Abdul-Salam al-Hreimi, for interrogation at Roadblock #300, south of Bethlehem.

Israeli sources said that two Israeli settlers were wounded in the vehicle collision, identified as Noam Navis, 19, who was moderately injured, and her brother, Nachum, 17, who suffered a serious head injury and has been hooked to a respirator, from Gush Etzion.

Israeli Ynetnews said “it remains unclear whether the incident was a deliberate attack, or a traffic accident,” and added that the driver was “neutralized.”

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

Ala was from the southern part of the West Bank. Source: IMEMC

 

Abdullah Ashraf al-Ghamri

August 10, 2019: Abdullah Ashraf al-Ghamri, was one of four Palestinians shot and killed by Israeli forces for allegedly coming too close to the border fence between Gaza and Israel, east of Dir al-Balah, in the central Gaza Strip.

Israeli forces stationed along Gaza borders to the east of Dir al-Balah reportedly opened fire on a group of Palestinians after they allegedly approached the Israeli-installed barbed-wire fence along Gaza’s border with Israel, shooting and killing four.

The Israeli army then took their corpses away to an unknown location.

A Facebook page managed by the family of one of the slain Palestinians said the four have been identified as Ahmad Ayman Tarabin, Abdullah Ismael Hamayda, Abdullah Ashraf al-Ghamri and Rashad al-Bodeini.

Israeli sources claimed that the group of Palestinians had fired toward the military base at the border, and there was an exchange of fire.

It also said the Palestinians carried AK-47 rifles, hand grenades, and a rocket-propelled grenade launcher, in addition to food.

Israeli daily Haaretz said the army is trying to determine whether the Palestinians “were planning to attack soldiers or civilians.”

The Israeli Ynetnews said that the Golani Brigades that opened fire on the Palestinians are the same Brigade that came under fire two days earlier, when two soldiers were injured.

Following the shooting of the four Palestinians, the Israeli airforce dropped bombs on what they claimed were two observation posts for the Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of the Hamas party.

Military vehicles also invaded the area east of Dir al-Balah and began combing the area.

Israel has imposed a buffer zone inside the Gaza Strip along the border between Gaza and Israel, preventing Palestinians from reaching their lands near the border fence. It regularly opens fire at anyone who enters that buffer zone.

In a fact sheet about Israeli attacks on border areas and their consequences, the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) said, “preventing Palestinians from accessing their lands and fishing areas violates numerous provisions of international human rights law, including the right to work, the right to an adequate standard of living, and the right to the highest attainable standard of health.”
