Fadi Mohammad Ghattas

Fadi GhattasSeptember 02, 2022: Fadi Mohammad Fayez Ghattas, 19, was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers after an alleged stabbing attack targeting soldiers, near Beit Einoun village junction, northeast of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

The young man was shot with live fire before the soldiers closed the entire area and prevented Palestinian medics from approaching him while he bled. The soldiers took him to a hospital in occupied Jerusalem, where he was pronounced dead.

Eyewitnesses said the soldiers fired several live rounds at the young man from a close range, even after he fell to the ground.

They added that the soldiers also fired gas bombs and concussion grenades at Palestinians who tried to reach him.

The soldiers then called for an Israeli ambulance that arrived later while he continued to bleed on the ground.

The Israeli occupation army claimed the young stabbed and moderately injured a soldier near Kiryat Arba’ colony before another soldier opened fire and “neutralized him.”
Israeli Paramedics and army medical personnel provided treatment to the wounded soldiers before moving him to Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem. They said the soldier was fully conscious.

The army alleged that, according to its initial investigation, Fadi got out of a car and walked towards the soldiers before approaching one of them and stabbing him in the neck.

After the fatal shooting, dozens of Palestinians marched in the area, chanting against the illegal Israeli occupation, its colonies, and escalating Israeli violations.

Commenting on how he was informed of his son’s death, Mohammad Ghattas said:

“I returned from work before the wife told me that an Israeli intelligence officer phoned our home and informed her that my brother Mahmoud and I have been summoned for interrogation at Etzion military base.

“After heading there, an officer asked me about my son and if I knew where he was and what he was wearing when he left home before showing me a picture of him after he was shot and covered in his own blood.

“They executed my son. I asked them why they didn’t just shoot him in the legs to incapacitate him, and why they had to deliver fatal shots, but they never answered my questions.”

Fadi was from the Deheishe refugee camp, south of Bethlehem city, in the West Bank. Source: IMEMC

Mahmoud Fayez Abu Ayhour

June 9, 2022: Mahmoud Fayez Abu Ayhour, 27, was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers who invaded the village of Halhoul and began firing live rounds at Palestinians protesting the invasion. In addition to killing Mahmoud, the soldiers injured five other Palestinians with live ammunition.

Local sources said a large military force invaded Halhoul and obstructed traffic before storming a money exchange shop, confiscating a large sum of cash, and welding it shut.

The invasion led to protests, where the soldiers fired dozens of live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, and gas bombs, killing a young man and wounding five.

Dr. Sharif at-Tardi, the spokesperson of the al-Mezan Specialty Hospital in Hebron, said the soldiers shot Mahmoud Fayez Abu Ayhour, 27, from Halhoul town north of Hebron, with live rounds.

He added that the bullets perforated the diaphragm and severed the thoracic aortic artery, his heart, and lung. 

Dr. at-Tardi stated that the young man was rushed to the hospital in a profoundly serious condition and succumbed to his serious wounds during surgery.

The soldiers also shot two Palestinians with live rounds and one with rubber-coated steel bullets, in addition to two others who were shot with high-velocity gas bombs in their heads.

The slain young man’s uncle said Mahmoud wasn’t participating in the protests and did not pose any threat to the soldiers but was working at a construction site in the area when the soldiers started firing live rounds at random.

Ghofran Haroun Warasna

June 01, 2022: Ghofran Haroun Warasna, 31, was shot in the chest and killed by Israeli soldiers at the entrance of the al-‘Arroub refugee camp, north of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

Dr. Yousef Takrouri, the director of the Al-Ahli Hospital in Hebron, said Ghofran was left to bleed to death by the Israeli soldiers and died before the medics could take her to the hospital, adding that the doctors tried to revive her, but she succumbed to her serious wounds.

Dr. Yousef added that the soldiers shot Ghofran with a live round in the left side of her chest, under the armpit, adding that the bullet went through her heart and exited from the right side of her chest.

He also said the soldiers did not allow anybody to reach her and left her bleeding on the ground for twenty minutes before eventually allowing the Palestinian medics to reach her.

The slain young woman studied media and journalism at Hebron University and was active in documenting the Israeli military violations.

In addition, she was a journalist reporting to three Radio stations in Hebron.

A few days before the soldiers killed her, Ghofran started a new job at Dream Radio in Hebron and was on her way to work.

Her cousin, Yousef Warasna, said that he was heading to work in his car with his son, and was informed she was shot and killed.

An eyewitness said the woman was walking in the area heading to her work and did not attempt to attack the soldiers when they shot her near their military tower.

Palestinian Prime Minister Dr. Mohammad Shtayyeh condemned the Israeli crime and demanded the International Community act on prosecuting Israel for its ongoing and escalating violations against the civilians.

“This organized terrorism is encouraged by the absence of sanctions and punitive measures against the illegal Israeli occupation of Palestine,” he said, “The lack of punishment means another crime will be committed…”.

“The International Criminal Court sent forty investigators to Ukraine in less than two months,” Dr. Shtayyeh stated, “Yet, nothing has been done to prosecute Israel for its crimes that have been ongoing for decades.”

The Israeli army claimed the soldiers shot the woman when she allegedly attempted to stab them, adding that the soldiers “neutralized the woman.” No soldiers were hurt in the purported attack.

In incidents of alleged stabbings or attempted stabbings, the Israeli army does not allow the Palestinian medics to approach the wounded and instead calls for an Israeli ambulance, leaving the wounded bleeding to “secure the scene” and ensure they have the person in custody regardless of their condition.

However, the soldiers allowed the Palestinian medics to transfer her to a Palestinian hospital in Hebron city instead of taking her to an Israeli hospital, an issue that casts serious doubts on the military allegations.

Abdullah Tayseer Mousa Srour

April 12, 2022: Abdullah Tayseer Mousa Srour, 41, was killed by Israeli police officers after they invaded a construction site, looking for people with no entry or work permits, in Asqalan (Ashkelon) city.

Eyewitnesses said the Police invaded the construction site to look for Palestinian workers who have no permits and shot one after he reportedly refused to show him his ID card.

Abdullah worked in Amman – Jordan, selling car parts and fixing cars, and used to come to Palestine to work in construction for a few months of the year for the last four years.

The family said he had no political affiliation and was a hardworking man trying to survive and support his family.

The police claim that the worker was “behaving suspiciously,” “had a knife,” and “stabbed an officer,” causing a mild injury before he was fatally shot.

The Israeli Public Security Minister Omer Barlev “congratulated” the officer who killed Mousa and said he “prevented an attack with his own body…” Israeli National News said.

Shaher Sa’ad, the secretary of the Palestinian General Federation of Trade Unions, denounced the escalating Israeli volition against the Palestinian workers and added that the Israeli Police has been invading construction sites and interrogating the Palestinian workers while checking for permits in addition to repeatedly assaulting and detaining them.

“Abdullah worked hard to support his family, living in Jordan because Israel refused to grant them family reunification documents; he was an electrician and was trying to support his wife and son,” Sa’ad said, “This policy of killing our people, our workers, is a serious violation of International Law; “Palestinian workers are looking for their daily bread to feed their families and support them.”

Suleiman al-Hathalin

January 17, 2022: Suleiman al-Hathalin, 75, died from serious wounds he suffered on January 5th, 2022, after an Israeli tow truck ran him over in the Um al-Khair area of Masafer Yatta, south of Hebron in the southern occupied West Bank.

The Palestinian Health Ministry stated that Suleiman remained in the Intensive Care Unit at the al-Mezan Hospital in Hebron city until he succumbed to the serious wounds he suffered on January 5th, 2022.

Al-Hathalin, 75, a well-known activist from the Um al-Khair area was rammed with a military truck during nonviolent protests that took place after the soldiers invaded Masafer Yatta, causing him to suffer a critical skull fracture.

His injuries were extensive; to the head, chest, abdomen, and pelvis, medical sources at the al-Mezan hospital have confirmed.

Fouad al-Amour, the Coordinator of the Protection and Steadfastness Committees in Masafer Yatta, stated after the elderly man was rammed and seriously injured, that the army invaded the area, accompanying a tow truck, and seized several Palestinian-owned vehicles, leading to protests, and added that local Palestinians gathered in the area to stop the Israeli army from confiscating their privately-owned vehicles when the tow truck drove over Suleiman.

His family said it will be filing a suit against the Israeli police for the excessive use of force against him, especially since he was repeatedly assaulted and abducted by the soldiers and the police, in various previous attacks, despite his old age and frail body.

Suleiman was a prominent figure and has been part of ongoing protests, especially after Israel confiscated Palestinian lands in the 1980s, and built the illegal Carmiel colony.

After the colony was built on the stolen lands, the Palestinians were denied the right to build homes in the area, an issue that forced them to live in tin houses and tents that have been demolished more than fifteen times.

The Israeli army previously demolished Suleiman’s home, after alleging it was close to Carmiel colony which was built on stolen Palestinian lands.

Suleiman’s family was displaced from the Arad area in the Negev desert when Israel was established in the historic land of Palestine in the year 1948.

The family then moved to the area east of Yatta town, south of Hebron, and in the year 1965 they bought the land where they built and resided, however, Israel illegally annexed Palestinian lands, including part of Suleiman’s land, and built the illegal Karmiel colony in the year 1980, and has since been expanding it by further theft of land.
