Mohammad Ata Abu Jame’

March 03, 2018: Mohammad Ata Abu Jame’, 59, was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers while working on his land in Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

The Palestinian Health Ministry reported that the farmer was shot by the soldiers, and suffered a serious injury, while working on his own land, in Khuza’a area, east of Khan Younis.

He was rushed to Nasser Hospital in Khan Younis, but died from his serious wounds, later the same day, March 3rd.

His wife said that she was heading to the family’s land to bring food for her husband when she heard the shots, and then she heard the husband screaming in pain and asking her to call for an ambulance.

Both Mohammad’s wife and their son said that there was no reason for the soldiers to shoot Mohammad, because he was just working on his land, and the situation was calm, and added that the man was very healthy, and always loved to work and plant the land.

“Our only problem is that our land is located near the border fence which was installed by Israel,” the son said, “They shot him for nothing — this was the first time that the soldiers open fire at us on our land…”

There were no protests near the border area when the soldiers shot the Palestinian man, and there was no reason for opening fire.

It is worth mentioning that the army frequently invades Palestinian lands located close to the border fence, and constantly opens fire at farmers and workers, an issue that has led to dozens of casualties, including many fatalities.

Amir Abu Mosa’ed

January 11, 2018: Amir Abdul-Hamid Abu Mosa’ed, 16, was killed by Israeli soldiers who fired live rounds at Palestinian protesters, east of the al-Boreij refugee camp, in central Gaza.

Palestinian medical sources said the soldiers shot Amir with a live round in his chest, and added that the soldiers also shot three other Palestinians also with live fire, including one who suffered a life-threatening injury.

Media sources in Gaza said dozens of Palestinians marched on their lands, close to the border fence in central Gaza, before the soldiers fired many live rounds, in addition to gas bombs and rubber-coated steel bullets at them.

Many Palestinians suffered the effects of teargas inhalation, and received the needed medical treatment.

On the same day, the soldiers killed a child, identified as Ali Omar Nimir Qeino, 17, after the army fired live rounds at Palestinians who intercepted an attack carried out by colonialist settlers into Iraq-Burin village, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus.

Ibrahim Abu Thuraya

December 15, 2017: Ibrahim Abu Thuraya, 29, was shot by an Israeli soldier with a live round in the head, near the eastern border of Gaza city.

Ibrahim was an amputee, who lost both of his legs in 2008, when an Israeli army helicopter fired a missile at him after he removed the Israeli flag and replaced it with the Palestinian flag, on the border fence. Just before he was killed on Friday, Ibrahim had climbed a tower and placed the Palestinian flag – climbing with just his arms, since both his legs have been gone since 2008. Shortly after he climbed back down from the tower to his wheelchair, he was shot and killed.

On the day of this killing, thousands of Palestinian marched in several parts of the of the West Bank and the besieged Gaza Strip, especially in Palestinian lands close to the border fence, before Israeli soldiers started firing dozens of live rounds at them, in addition to rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs and concussion grenades.

Three other Palestinians were shot and killed by Israeli forces this day. Palestinian hospitals provided treatment to at least 367 persons in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. 103 Palestinians were shot in the West Bank; two of them suffered life-threatening wounds and remain in critical conditions.

264 Palestinians were injured in the Gaza Strip; five of them suffered life-threatening wounds, 1000, who suffered the effects of teargas inhalation, in addition to cuts and bruises.

The Health Ministry in Gaza, said medics and rescue teams rushed into the bombarded area, and located the remains of two Palestinians, buried under the rubble.

A Palestinian resistance organization said the two are members, adding that the bombarded site “Bader” was run by it.

The army also fired many missiles into three other resistance sites, south of Gaza city, in addition to Khan Younis, and east of Jabalia, in northern Gaza.

The Israeli army claimed it was retaliating to shells fired from Gaza, on Friday, on Sderot and nearby areas, in the Negev.

On Saturday morning, Israeli soldiers, stationed across the border fence, shot and injured at least one Palestinian, and caused many others to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation.

Media sources said the army attacked dozens of protesters, who marched in Khuza’a town, east of Khan Younis, moderately wounding one teenager, and caused many others, mainly school students, to suffer the severe effects of teargas inhalation.

The wounded teen was rushed to Nasser hospital, in Khan Younis, while the medics provided treatment to many Palestinians who suffered the effects of teargas inhalation.

At least at least fifteen Palestinians, including a child who suffered life-threatening injuries, were wounded, during an earlier bombarded of several areas in the Gaza Strip.

The two Palestinians were killed less than 24 hours after the soldiers killed two Palestinians, and injured 1114 others, in several parts of the occupied West Bank, including Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip.
