Ziad Ahmad Mansour

February 24, 2020: Ziad Ahmad Mansour, 23, a Palestinian fighter with the armed wing of Islamic Jihad, was one of two Palestinians killed by an Israeli missile in Damascus, Syria.

The Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad, has reported that two of its fighters were killed, late on Sunday at night, after Israeli war jets fired missiles into an area in the Syrian capital, Damascus.

The Brigades stated that its slain fighters have been identified as Salim Ahmad Salim, 24, and Ziad Ahmad Mansour, 23.

It added that the Israeli offensive on the Arab Syrian capital “is just another example of Tel Aviv’s failure in facing the Palestinian fighters in occupied Palestine.

“This new aggression will not deter us, as it is only another incentive for us to continue our fight for liberation and independence,” the Brigades added, “Our struggle against the Israeli occupation will continue until we achieve our legitimate goals,” and vowed a fierce retaliation.

Medical sources have confirmed that at least four Palestinians were injured.

In related news, Israeli fighter jets fired, on Sunday evening, many missiles into sites run by the Al-Quds Brigades in several areas in the besieged Gaza Strip, after the fighters fired homemade shells into nearby settlements in retaliation to the death of Mohammad Ali Hasan an-Na’em, 27, from Khan Younis, who was killed by army fire before the soldiers crushed his body with the blade of their bulldozer, then grabbed the corpse with the blade and swinging the body back and forth in the air.

ِAbu Hamza, the spokesperson of the Al-Quds Brigades, said in a statement that the brigades will retaliate to the Israeli aggression on Syria resulting in the death of the two fighters.

On Saturday evening, the soldiers abducted a Palestinian merchant, identified as Amer Baraka, at the Erez Terminal, in northern Gaza. He is the third merchant to be taken prisoner at the terminal since the beginning of this year.

Mohammad Ali Hasan an-Na’em

February 23, 2020: Mohammad Ali Hasan an-Na’em, 27, was shot and killed by Israeli forces, who then repeatedly crushed his body using an armored bulldozer as a weapon, then used the blade of the bulldozer to lift the corpse of Mohammad from where it lay on the ground, then swing the corpse back and forth in the air.

The Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad, has reported that the slain Palestinian was one of its members.

The Brigades stated that the Palestinian has been identified as Mohammad Ali Hasan an-Na’em, 27, from Khan Younis.

The slain Palestinian was unarmed and wasn’t even in military attire when the soldiers attacked him, along with many residents,  with their bulldozer, and live rounds.

In addition to killing Mohammad, the Israeli forces injured four, on Palestinian lands, in Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli army claimed that its soldiers observed two Palestinians approaching the perimeter fence, before placing an explosive device.

It alleged that the soldiers then rushed to the scene and fired live ammunition at the two Palestinians, causing the explosive device to explode.

Israeli officials frequently make outrageous claims about Palestinians they kill, which are often proven later to be false.

Media sources in Gaza said several Palestinians tried to reach the two Palestinians to provide them with the needed medical care and move them to a hospital, but a military bulldozer sped towards them and drove over the corpse of the slain Palestinian, before scooping it using the bulldozer’s plow.

The second Palestinian was injured with a live round in his leg and was rushed to a hospital in Khan Younis after the Palestinians managed to evacuate him before the soldiers could reach him.

The Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza has reported that two other Palestinians were shot and injured by Israeli army fire while attempting to help evacuate the wounded.

Israeli sources initially quoted the army claiming its soldiers killed two Palestinians in the incident.

Despite the military claims, a video from the scene shows the corpse of the young man on Palestinian land in an area quite a distance away from the fence.

The bulldozer was speeding towards the Palestinians to prevent them from retrieving the corpse of the slain young man.

Ala AbassiJanuary 31, 2020: Ala’ Hani al-Abbassi, 15, died from serious wounds he suffered in mid-October of 2019, after Israeli soldiers shot him in southern Gaza.

Palestinian sources said the child, Ala’ Hani al-Abbassi, 15, was shot by the soldiers with a high-velocity gas bomb in his head, east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

After his injury, the child received the needed first aid before he was rushed to a hospital in Khan Younis.

The child underwent surgeries and remained in a coma in the Intensive Care Unit for three months, until he was pronounced dead on January 31st.

On Friday at dawn, the Israeli army carried out a series of airstrikes targeting several areas in Rafah, in southern Gaza.

Media sources said the army carried out ten strikes that led to extensive property damage and caused a power blackout over most of the Rafah. This blackout may have affected the life support systems at the hospital, leading to his death.

Ibrahim Khalil ash-Shantaf

January 29, 2020: Ibrahim Khalil ash-Shantaf, 21, died in an accident in a siege busting tunnel, near Gaza city. The Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) reported that one of its fighters was killed in a tunnel accident.

The Brigades said the fighter, identified as Ibrahim Khalil ash-Shantaf, 21, was from Sheikh Radwan neighborhood in Gaza city.

It added that he was killed in an accident while working in one of its tunnels near the perimeter fence on the besieged and impoverished coastal region.

It is worth mentioning that hundreds of Palestinians have been killed or injured, in similar accidents. Many of them were not members of the Brigades or any armed resistance group and were working in the tunnels to provide for their families.

Most of the tunnels in Gaza are used for smuggling food, fuel, and medicine into the besieged Gaza Strip.

According to the Israeli army, the soldiers fired many live rounds, and shells, at the three Palestinians, leading to their death.

The Palestinian Health Ministry in the Gaza Strip reported that a farmer, identified as Mahdi Eid Ayyad Irmeilat, 36, was killed when an explosive object went off near him while he was working on his farmland, east of Rafah.

The Health Ministry stated that another Palestinian farmer was seriously injured in a similar explosion on a farmland, also east of Rafah.

The Palestinian Security Forces in Khan Younis and Rafah have initiated investigations into the explosions.

Although the origins of the explosive objects remain unknown, it is believed they were dropped by Israeli soldiers during their numerous invasions into Palestinian farmlands near the perimeter fence, as such incidents have occurred in the past leading to dozens of casualties, including fatalities.

It is worth mentioning that many Palestinians have been killed, and dozens were injured, by unexploded ordnance dropped by Israeli soldiers during military training on Palestinian lands in the West Bank, especially in the Jordan Valley.

Our correspondent indicated that another explosion occurred, during which a second farmer was injured by a suspected body explosion east of Rafah, while he was transferred to the hospital to complete the necessary treatment.

He stated that the two explosions that took place east of Rafah are the result of the remnants of the Israeli occupation forces, pointing out that the police and the competent security authorities are present at the scene to determine its circumstances.
