Marwan Nassar

August 12, 2019: Marwan Nassar, 26, was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers near the border between Gaza and Israel in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.

Nassar was not associated with any Palestinian resistance groups, but the Israeli paper Ha’aretz has reported that relatives of Nassar told them that he was a part of the armed wing of Hamas.

The relatives also told the Israeli paper that he was not acting as a representative of Hamas when approaching the border on Sunday, but was acting independently.

Hamas did not take responsibility for the incident.

According to Ha’aretz, the unnamed relative of Nassar told them that he had participated in the weekly protests at the Gaza border, and had been going through a rough period with his family when he decided to carry out an attack against the Israeli military.

No soldiers were reported injured in what Israeli sources claim was an attack against a military border post.

It came one day after four Palestinians were killed on the eastern border of Gaza in what Israeli forces claim was a coordinated attack against the Israeli military.

A week before that, a Palestinian man managed to infiltrate the border and injure three Israeli soldiers before he was killed.

The Gaza Strip is one of the most crowded places on earth, and the 2 million Palestinians living in the Strip are imprisoned on all sides by the Israeli and Egyptian militaries.

Emad Mohammad Nosseir

May 4, 2019: Emad Mohammad Nosseir, 22, was killed by an Israeli airstrike in Beit Hanoun, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.

The Palestinian Health Ministry has confirmed that Israeli soldiers killed, Saturday, one Palestinian and injured at least seven others, during a series of air strikes and bombings targeting several areas of the besieged Gaza Strip.

The Health Ministry said the soldiers injured seven other Palestinians, including four who were wounded in previous air strikes targeting Beit Hanoun.

The Israeli Air Force also carried out several strikes targeting areas in northern Gaza, including many sites, run by armed resistance groups hundreds of meters away from the perimeter fence.

The targeted areas are in Rafah and Khan Younis, in southern Gaza Strip, the Central District and Gaza city, in addition to Beit Hanoun and Beit Lahia, in northern Gaza.

The army also fired many artillery shells into Palestinian farmlands along the eastern parts of the Gaza Strip.

The Education Ministry  granted authority to the principals of all schools in targeted and border areas to evacuate the schools and send the children to their homes without consulting with it, in order to avoid civilian casualties.

Students in most Gaza Strip schools are sitting for their final exams this week.

In addition, the Health Ministry has reported that it instructed all medical centers to be on high alert and utmost readiness, in case of further Israeli escalation.

Israeli sources said Palestinian armed groups in Gaza fired 90 shells into Rehovot, Ashdod, Sderot, and areas in Sha’ar HaNegev Regional Council of Settlements.

In addition, the National Resistance Brigades, the military wing of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) said it fired a missile into Asqalan (Ashkelon).

The Israeli army also closed several areas around the Gaza Strip, and restricted civilian access to them, due to the rising tension in the region, especially after two soldiers were injured, Friday, while the military killed four Palestinians.

Two of the slain Palestinians were killed during the Great Return March processions, and two members of the Al-Qassam Brigades were later killed by Israeli missiles.

Besides killing the two four Palestinians, the soldiers also injured 82 Palestinians, including 34 children, 2 journalists and 3 medics.

Also on Tuesday, the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) issued a statement denouncing the ongoing and escalating excessive Israeli military use of force against the Palestinians, leading to the death of four young men, including one child, in less than 24 hours, in two separate attacks in the northern and southern parts of the Gaza Strip.

Furthermore, the soldiers killed another Palestinian in the al-Misrara area, in occupied East Jerusalem, after he reportedly “attempted to stab soldiers.”

Kamal Mohammad al-Yaziji

Kamal YazijiJune 13, 2018: Kamal Mohammad al-Yaziji died from serious complications caused by wounds he suffered after Israeli soldiers shot him eight years ago.

Medical sources reported that Kamal, from Beit Hanoun, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip, died from serious complications resulting from an Israeli bullet in his spine.

His family said Kamal was shot by live Israeli army fire in his spine, causing paraplegia. Since that time, he has suffered from constant medical issues and complications, including serious infections and skin breakdowns.

They added that Kamal also developed gangrene, followed by further serious infections that claimed his life.

The Gaza Strip, devastated by various Israeli military offensives, and ongoing blockade since June 2007, have left the densely-populated Gaza Strip lacking basic humanitarian supplies, including specialized medical equipment and medications.

It is worth mentioning that many patients, suffering with various health conditions, including cancer and kidney diseases, have died due to the ongoing siege on Gaza, after being unable to receive treatment either in Israeli hospitals, or in hospitals in Arab counties and other parts of the world.
