Ala’ Khalil Qaisiyya

May 26, 2023: Ala’ Khalil Qaisiyya, 26, was killed by an Israeli guard in an illegal colony near Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

Israeli reports said a security team member shot the Palestinian, who has reportedly infiltrated a colony and was“heading to a synagogue in Teneh Omarim colony, where holiday prayers were taking place,” and added that “the guard shot him at the entrance of the building.”

According to Ynet News, the Palestinian was shot in “an attempted stabbing attack,” adding that the security guard shot him allegedly when he was “wielding his knife.” No Israelis were injured in the reported incident.

The report only indicated that the Palestinian was “neutralized,” a term various Israeli medical outlets use without providing further details, especially whether the person was killed or just ‘idled.’

Immediately after the incident, the Israeli army instructed the colonizers to remain indoors until further notice and prevented vehicles from entering or leaving the colony.

The Palestinian is the cousin of Sa’ad Mahmoud Qaisiyya, 25, who a paramilitary colonizer killed, on March 1, 2017, in the same colony.

There are 22 illegal Israeli colonies, fifteen outposts, and four’ industrial colonies’ on stolen Palestinian lands in Hebron, where about 21.000 colonizers reside.

The army also has 20 permanent military roadblocks in Hebron, resulting in constant closure and the isolation of many neighborhoods and communities.

Israel’s colonies in the occupied West Bank, including those in and around occupied East Jerusalem, are illegal under International Law, the Fourth Geneva Convention, and various United Nations and Security Council resolutions. They also constitute war crimes under International Law.

Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention states: “The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.” It also prohibits the “individual or mass forcible transfers, as well as deportations of protected persons from occupied territory.”

Mohammad Raed Baradiya

April 01, 2023: Mohammad Raed Nayef Baradiya, 23, was killed by Israeli soldiers near the town of Beit Ummar, north of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

The Public Authority for Civil Affairs stated that it had informed the Ministry of Health of Mohammad’s death by Israeli occupation bullets near the town of Beit Ummar.

Israeli police claimed that a vehicular collision in the West Bank was an alleged ‘ramming attack’ by a Palestinian driver.

Soon after the vehicle collision, Israeli military troops fired numerous live rounds at the driver, without stopping to question him.

Local sources reported that the occupation soldiers left Mohammad bleeding on the ground, and prevented Palestinian ambulances from approaching the place, until he died.

The Israeli occupation authorities claimed that three of its soldiers were wounded, two of them seriously, in an alleged “vehicle ramming attack” operation carried out by a Palestinian near the junction of the settlement bloc, “Gush Etzion”, which is located on stolen Palestinian land south of Bethlehem.

With the killing of the young man, the death toll since the beginning of this year has risen to 92, including 17 children and a woman, and a young man from the village of Hura in the Negev within the borders of what is now Israel.

The sources said the colonizers shot Mohammad with live fire in the head, causing a skull fracture, brain hemorrhaging and damage.

After the young man was shot, Palestinian medics rushed him to the Al-Ahli hospital before he was immediately admitted to surgery and remained in a critical condition until he succumbed to his serious wounds.

The soldiers shot Jawabra while trying to help his neighbors in the refugee camp after the soldiers invaded it, leading to protests, and fired a barrage of live rounds at several homes.

The Palestinian Health Ministry said Jawabra’s death brings the number of Palestinians killed by Israeli soldiers and paramilitary colonizers to 65, including thirteen children, four elders, and a detainee who died from medical neglect.

Haroun Rasmi Abu Arram

February 14, 2023: Haroun Rasmi Yousef Abu Arram, 27, died of wounds he suffered two years earlier after an Israeli soldier shot him in the neck.

Medical sources at Yatta Governmental Hospital, in Yatta town south of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, said the young man, Haroun Rasmi Yousef Abu Arram, 27, was shot on January 1, 2021, in the Tiwani area, south of Hebron.

Yatta hospital director, Ziad Abu Zahra, said an Israeli soldier shot Abu Arram with a live round in the neck from point-blank range, causing very serious wounds that resulted in quadriplegia.

Abu Zahra added that the young man also suffered various serious complications, including pneumonia, peripheral artery disease in his leg before it was amputated, severe pneumonia, and serious pressure sores in the back and pelvis.

Abu Arram was moved to several hospitals and underwent numerous surgeries due to constant complications until he succumbed to his wounds.

After the young man was shot, his father said the army had been trying to force the family to leave their lands.

“They have been pressuring us to leave our lands; Haroun did nothing wrong; he was in his home when the soldiers came and tried to confiscate the electricity generator, which the family depends on,” the father added, “It is not a separate or a one-time incident; this is an ongoing occupation and escalating violations against innocent civilians.”

The father added that, before he was shot, his son had been recently engaged and planning to get married within a few days.

Ahmad Abu Ali

February 10, 2023: Ahmad Abu Ali, 48, died in Israeli prison due to medical neglect by the Israeli prison authorities.

The Palestinian Prisoners’ Society (PPS) reported that a detainee from Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank, died at an Israeli medical center after he was denied essential medical treatment and was only moved to Soroka medical center when he neared death.

The PPS said the detainee Ahmad Abu Ali, 48, from Yatta town south of Hebron, was two years away from finishing his twelve-year prison sentence.

It added that the married father of nine had various chronic health conditions, including heart disease and diabetes, but did not receive the needed professional medical treatment and health checkups, an issue that caused further complications.

The PPS held Israel responsible for Ahmad’s death, especially after deliberately neglecting his urgent medical needs, and demanded the Israeli occupation authorities to release detailed and credible information about the health conditions of all ailing detainees and those who were shot before being abducted and imprisoned.

“What happened with Ahmad is part of ongoing Israeli violations against the detainees, especially denying them the right to proper and professional medical treatment; this is an illegal policy that slowly kills the ailing detainees,” the PPS said, “Many Palestinians detainees have died in Israeli prisons, including the few past years, because they didn’t receive the needed medical treatment, and several others were tortured to death.”

Following his death, the Israeli authorities closed all sections and all prisons where Palestinian detainees are held and enforced a strict lockdown, anticipating protests and hunger strikes by the detainees.

The Palestinian detainees in all prisons and detention centers have decided to return all their meals and declared a three-day strike to mourn Ahmad’s death.

Ahmad‘s death brings the number of Palestinian detainees who have died in Israeli prisons since 1967 to 235, including 75 patients. Dozens of former detainees also died from medical conditions that went untreated while imprisoned by Israel for many years.

More than 600 Palestinian detainees suffer from various health conditions, including 24 who have various forms of cancer.

Palestinian medics rushed to the scene, but the soldiers stopped them and did not allow them to approach the severely bleeding man, who was later declared dead at the scene before the army took his body to an unknown destination.

Hours after killing the Palestinian man, dozens of Israeli soldiers invaded Halhoul town, stormed and ransacked the slain officer’s home, and interrogated his family.

The invasion led to protests before the soldiers fired live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, and gas bombs, causing many Palestinians to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.

Mohammad Kamel Al-Jabari

October 29, 2022: Mohammad Kamel Al-Jabari, 35, was killed in a shooting attack that also resulted in the death of an Israeli colonizer near the Kiryat Arba illegal colony in Hebron city, in the southern part of the West Bank.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) said its medics rushed to the area to provide essential aid to Mohammad, but the soldiers fired many live rounds at their ambulance, wounding a medic, Ahmad Abu Khaled, who was shot with a live round in the shoulder, and causing damage to the ambulance.

The army took Mohammad’s corpse after refusing to release his body to Palestinian medics.

The Israeli who was killed in the shooting has been identified as Ronen Hananya, 50, from Kiryat Arba. Another wounded Israeli, in his fifties, remains in critical condition, Israeli sources have confirmed.

Ronen Hananya

A surveillance video released to Israeli media shows the Palestinian walking through the street holding a rifle and shooting before an Israeli car of an off-duty soldier, accompanied by a security agent working for the Kiryat Arba colony, sped toward him.

The car rams into the man at high speed, crashing his body and the car into a wall.

The car then backs away, and an Israeli settler jumps out and fires multiple rounds at the Palestinian now lying on the ground.

In addition to the Israeli man and the Palestinian man who were killed, an Israeli medic with the medical association Magen David was injured in the attack and was brought to the Israeli hospital in Shaare Tzedek Medical Center.

Another Palestinian was also wounded with gunshot fire. He was only identified as a 37-year-old man, and his injuries were described as moderate.

Israeli daily Haaretz said three Israelis, including the son of the man who was killed, where taken to Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem.

It added that the seriously wounded man 50-year-old Israeli man remained in a critical condition until he succumbed to his wounds.

Haaretz also said that a fourth Israeli, Ofer Ohana, a Magen David Adom medic, was transferred to the Shaare Zedek Medical Center where he remained unconscious and on life support.

Initial reports claimed that the attack appeared to target the home of right-wing Israeli politician Itamar Ben-Gvir, who lives in Kiryat Arba, but an Israeli military spokesperson said that this was not a targeted attack on Ben-Gvir but appeared instead to be targeting an Israeli military guard post.

While some Israeli reports claimed Mohammad was a member of Hamas, his family said he wasn’t involved with any party or group and was an Islamic studies teacher and a married father of two children.

His older brother is an officer with the Palestinian General Intelligence, controlled by the Fateh movement of President Mahmoud Abbas, and his middle brother is a member of Hamas and was one of many Palestinians who were exiled from the West Bank to Gaza as part of the Shalit prisoner swap agreement.

Media sources said Mohammad was also receiving treatment for abdominal cancer, which reached an advanced stage.

After the soldiers killed him, the army installed many roadblocks in Hebron and isolated several neighborhoods before storming and ransacking many homes.

Illegal Israeli colonizers also attacked many homes and fired several live rounds at them, despite constant Israeli military deployment in the area and while a military helicopter was hovering overhead.

Just before midnight, the soldiers closed all roads leading to Hebron city, the Al-Fawwar refugee camp, Farsh Al-Hawa junction, Beit Einoun junction, and Al-Fahs junction, and the areas of Al-Harayeq and Khirbat Qalqas.

On October 28, Israeli soldiers killed two Palestinian medics, Emad Abu Rashid, 47, and Ramzi Sami Zabara, 35, near the Huwwara military roadblock south of Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.
