Yacoub NassarJuly 8, 2018: Ya’coub Fayeq Nassar, 18, died of wounds sustained 9 years ago, in 2009, when he was shot by Israeli forces and paralyzed.

Palestinian medical sources in Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank, said that Yacoub died, Sunday, from very serious complications resulting from wounds, he suffered in 2009, after Israeli soldiers shot him.

Rami Wahid Hasan Sabarna

June 2, 2018: Rami Wahid Hasan Sabarna, 36, was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers in Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank, while he and other workers were conducting work for the Hebron City Council to rehabilitate and expand a road near the Ibrahimi Mosque.

The Health Ministry in Hebron said the soldiers fatally shot Rami in Jaber neighborhood in the Old City, near the military roadblock leading to the Ibrahimi Mosque.

The Ministry added that the soldiers also stopped a Palestinian ambulance at the scene, and prevented the medics from approaching the Palestinian, before he bled to death.

An Israeli ambulance later arrived, and its medics placed Rami’s body in a black bag and took it away.

The army claimed that the Palestinian worker “attempted to ram the soldiers with his vehicle, before they shot him,” an allegation which was denied by eyewitnesses, who said the young man was just working, and did not attempt to attack the soldiers, or harm them in any way.

Aref Jaber, a local nonviolent activist against the Annexation Wall and Colonies, who lives near the area where the army killed the worker, said Sabarna was driving a small and loud bulldozer, and added that the worker passed by some soldiers who then started shouting at him an ordering him to stop.

“He did not pose any threat to them, he passed by them and could not hear their shouts and orders,” Aref said, “Then, they just opened fire at him and his bulldozer, seriously wounded him, before removing him from his vehicle and leaving him to bleed on the ground. When Red Crescent medics arrived, the soldiers prevented them from providing Sabarna with the urgently needed treatment, and he bled to death, before the soldiers placed his corpse in a black plastic bag and took him away.”

The soldiers also removed media outlets from the area, and prevented the journalists from performing their duties.

Rami’s death follows the killing of a young Palestinian woman the day before, a volunteer medic identified as Razan Ashraf Najjar, 22. On the same day, Israeli forces injured 100 Palestinians, including 40 with live fire, in the Gaza Strip.

Edrees Shaker Jabareen

May 15, 2018: Edrees Shaker Jabareen, 58, died from the severe effects of teargas inhalation, after Israeli soldiers invaded the ad-Dowwara area, in Sa’ir town, south of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, and resorted to the excessive use of force against nonviolent Palestinian protesters.

Jabareen, a member of the Local Council in Sa’ir town, was rushed to the Emergency Unit at the al-Ahli Hospital, but died from the severe effects of the toxic gas bombs fired by the soldiers.

The Palestinian suffocated near his home in the ad-Dowwara area, after the soldiers fired dozens of gas bombs at the protesters, and was rushed to the al-Ahli Hospital, in Hebron, where he died at the Urgent Care Unit.

Medics said the man was standing near his home talking to some other Palestinians, but the intensity of the Israeli gas bombs covered the entire area before he collapsed, and was rushed to the hospital.

Edrees did not suffer from any health issues, or preexisting conditions, especially since he underwent routine medical checkups just a few days prior to his death, and received a clean bill of health.

On the same day, an armed Israeli colonialist settler tried to ram a young man, identified as Bilal Za’tari, 28, with his car near Khirbat Qalqas area, south of Hebron city, and when the man managed to run away, the settler shot him with a live round in his arm, and fled the scene.

The wounded young man suffered a moderate injury, and was rushed to the Al-Ahli Hospital.

Furthermore, the soldiers attacked protesters in the al-‘Arroub refugee camp, north of Hebron, with live fire, gas bombs and concussion grenades, in addition to directly targeting a home with gas bombs, causing many Palestinians to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation.

Hani Fayez al-’Adarba

Hani AdarbaMay 11, 2018: Hani Fayez al-’Adarba, 23, died of wounds sustained two days earlier when he was intentionally hit by an Israeli colonial settler vehicle.

Palestinian medical sources in Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank, reported that the young man died from serious wounds he suffered on May 9th, after being rammed by an Israeli colonial settler’s bus.

The sources said that Hani was struck by the speeding Israeli bus on settlement road #35, which links to Tarqoumia terminal and road #60, near Halhoul, north of Hebron city.

Despite eyewitness accounts that the vehicle intentionally struck Hani, Israeli police decided not to investigate the incident as a potential terror attack.

Hani suffered various serious fractures and internal injuries, and was moved to an Israeli hospital where he died from his wounds two days later.

On the same day that Hani died, the Israeli army shot and killed one Palestinian, identified as Jaber Salem Abu Mustafa, 40, and injured 167, including seven who suffered very serious wounds, in several parts of the Gaza Strip during protests marking the “Great March of Return”.

Mohammad Zein al-Ja’bari

Mohammad Zein al-Ja’bariMarch 9th, 2018: Mohammad Zein al-Ja’bari, 24, who is deaf and mute, was shot and killed by Israeli forces in the southern West Bank city of Hebron.

The young man could not speak or hear, and so did not respond to Israeli soldiers’ commands as they invaded the city.

The young man suffered very serious wounds and was rushed to a local hospital, but died from his wounds despite all efforts to save his life.

Mohammad was shot when the soldiers engaged in an excessive use of force against Palestinian protesters, firing live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets and gas bombs.

He was in an area far from where the protest was taking place, but was struck with a live round after the army fired many bullets at the protesters.

The Israeli army claimed that the soldiers shot the Palestinian while he was allegedly “throwing a Molotov cocktail at them,” and added that it is “investigating the incident.”

It is worth noting that Israeli forces have been proven to, in virtually every occasion, claim that a Palestinian that they have killed was attacking them. Even though most of these claims are later proven false, they are reported in the media in the immediate aftermath of a killing and never retracted.

Hours after his death, hundreds of Palestinians marched in his funeral procession following prayers at a local mosque, in Ein Sara Street, in Hebron.

February 06, 2018: Hamza Yousef No’man Zama’ra, 19, was killed by Israeli soldiers after allegedly stabbing an Israeli security guard in the hand.

Hamza was shot and killed near Karmei Tzur illegal Israeli colony, which was built on Palestinian lands in Hebron.

The Palestinian District Coordination Office (DCO) confirmed to the Health Ministry that the slain Palestinian has been identified as Hamza Yousef No’man Zama’ra, 19, from Halhoul town, north of Hebron.

Israeli sources claimed that the Palestinian “very lightly wounded the guard in a stabbing attack in Karmie Tzur.” The wounded Israeli guard was identified as Boris Balbrava, 36, from Karmei Tzur colony.

They said that Hamza “arrived by car at the security post leading to the settlement, and attacked a guard directly after exiting the car,” and added that he stabbed a guard in his hand, causing very minor wounds, before another guard shot him dead.

Following the incident, dozens of soldiers arrived at the scene, and initiated an extensive search campaign, reportedly to locate “possible accomplices.”

The soldiers later invaded Hamza’s home, and violently searched it, before interrogating his family and detaining his father. They released the father later, and summoned two of his sons for interrogation in the Etzion military base, north of Hebron.

Following Hamza’s death, dozens of Palestinian protested in Halhoul, before the soldiers attacked them, and fired dozens of live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets and gas bombs.

Medical sources in Hebron said the soldiers shot at least 29 Palestinians with live rounds and rubber-coated steel bullets and caused many to suffer the severe effects of teargas inhalation, in addition to assaulting three with clubs and batons.

It is worth mentioning that Hamza is a former political prisoner and has two brothers who are imprisoned by Israel.

He is the third Palestinian to be killed by Israeli soldiers in the occupied West Bank within 24 hours, after the soldiers killed Ahmad Nasr Jarrar, near Jenin, and Khaled Waleed Tayeh, in Nablus.
