Betsheva Nigri

August 21, 2023: Betsheva Nigri, 40, was shot and killed while driving near the Palestinian city of al-Khalil, in the southern part of the West Bank. Another passenger in the vehicle, an adult male, was wounded, while a six-year-old child in the car was not harmed.

The Israeli woman killed in the shooting has been identified as Betsheva Nigri, 40, while another Israeli, Aryeh Gottleib, 39, was seriously injured.

Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant said Monday that the army arrested two young Palestinian men, both relatives from Hebron, who were believed to be behind the shooting and said in a social media post that the army will continue to “pursue and arrest Israel’s enemies…”

A joint statement by the Shin Bet, Israeli Border Police, and the Israeli Army confirmed the arrest of the two Palestinians and said they were moved to an interrogation facility run by the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency). During the invasion and the arrests, the Israeli army said it located and confiscated several weapons.

The army said the two did not resist the soldiers who abducted them. One of them, believed to be the one who killed the Israeli settler woman, has been identified as Saqer Shanteer.

It also said the gun reportedly used in the attack was located and confiscated, adding that the car the Palestinians used in the shooting was found burnt near Halhoul town, north of Hebron.

The gun used in the attack was also apprehended and the car that was allegedly used by the terrorists in their attack was found burned in the near-by city of Halhul.

Israeli military sources issued a statement claiming that two Israelis were shot from a passing vehicle.

Israeli forces closed all Palestinian roads in the area and implemented checkpoints, causing serious travel delays for the Palestinian population of the southern West Bank.

The wounded man was taken to Soroka Medical Center in Be’er As-Sabe’ (Beersheva) in serious condition.

Abdul-Wahab Khalayla

July 04, 2023: Abdul-Wahab Khalayla, 20, was killed by an Israeli after he reportedly rammed several Israelis with his car and stabbed one pedestrian in Tel Aviv.

Israeli sources said nine Israelis were injured in what they dubbed a car-ramming and a stabbing attack by the Palestinian on Pinchas Rosen Street in Tel Aviv before the Palestinian was shot dead.

The Jerusalem Post said that, according to social media footage, Abdul-Wahab was killed after he ran over several Israelis with a car and stepped out of the vehicle before stabbing one in the neck.

The Jerusalem Post said an Israeli civilian at the scene fatally shot the Palestinian before paramedics arrived and started treating the wounded Israelis.

The Israeli Ynet News said a security camera footage shows the car the Palestinian was driving crashing into a bus stop, striking several Israelis, before he climbed out of the car window and chased onlookers while carrying a knife.

The Ynet quoted the police stating that the car veered onto the bicycle land and the sidewalk before striking pedestrians.

A video from the scene shows the Israeli executing the Palestinian by shooting at least three times, within a few seconds between each shot, after he was already shot and lying on the street bleeding.

Israeli daily Haaretz said one of the wounded Israelis is a pregnant woman, 46 years of age, who suffered serious wounds, two Israelis in their thirties sustained moderate wounds, and two were mildly injured due to the impact with the vehicle.

Israeli emergency services said that three Israelis suffered serious wounds, and four others with sustained bruises from the impact of the car.

Haaretz quoted Tel Aviv Police District Commander Ami Eshed stating that the incident was a deliberate attack and that the Palestinian appears to have acted alone, but the police are trying to find out if he was accompanied by anybody else.

Haaretz also said that, according to the Shin Bet security service, the Palestinian “entered Israel without a permit, and had no security background.”

Shortly afterwards, the police detained several Paletinians believed to be involved in the incident and said that Abdul-Wahab’s background and affiliations are currently under investigation.

A few hours after the incident, the abducted his father and his brothers who work inside the Greenline. 

The soldiers also closed the main entrances of the As-Samou’ town, south of Hebron, the hometown of the slain young man.

It is worth mentioning that the Israeli security agency first claimed Abdul-Wahhab’s brother, Hussein, was the slain Palestinian but later said the deceased is Abdul-Wahab.

Far right-wing Israeli “National security Minister” Itamar Ben-Gvir, who also led the fanatic Jewish Power Party, praised the Israeli who killed the Palestinian and described his as a hero.

The Hamas movement claimed that the Palestinian was one of its members and added that the attack comes in retaliation to the ongoing Israeli offensive in Jenin, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

The Islamic Jihad movement also said the attack is a natural response to the Israeli onslaught on Jenin.

On Tuesday dawn, Israeli soldiers killed a young Palestinian man, Odai Ibrahim Khamaisa, 22, in Jenin City, bringing the number of slain Palestinians in Jenin to ten on the second day of the Israeli offensive.

Khamaisa was the nineth Palestinian the soldiers kill in Jenin, after the army killed eight earlier Monday, in addition to wounding more than 100, twenty seriously.

The Palestinian Health Ministry identified the eight slain Palestinians as Samih Firas Abu Al-Wafa, 21, Aws Hani Hannoun, 19, Husam Mohammad Abu Theeba, 18, Noureddin Husam Marshoud, 16, Mohammad Mohannad Shami, 23, Ahmad Mohammad Al-Amer, 21, Ali Hani Al-Ghoul, 17, and Majdi Ar’arawi, 17.

The Israeli military spokesperson said Israel still has ten targets to achieve in its Jenin refugee camp offensive and said the soldiers have abducted about 120 young men.

In a press conference, the spokesperson said that the army estimated that there are 300 Palestinian fighters in Jenin and added that it has a list of names of about 160.

Hundreds of Palestinian families (approximately 3000 Palestinians) were displaced from their homes in the refugee camp and went to the nearby Jenin governmental hospital and mosques after the army ordered them to leave as it continues its offensive.

Israeli military bulldozers and missiles caused excessive damage to homes and buildings, and bulldozed streets, in addition to destroying cars, and blocking access to the refugee camp, and attacking ambulances, medics and journalists.

On Monday night, the Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed the death of a Palestinian teen, Mustafa Nidal Al-Qassem, 17, whom Israeli soldiers shot during the ongoing offensive on Jenin in the northern West Bank. The slain teen is the tenth Israeli soldier killed Monday; nine in Jenin and one near Ramallah.

Furthermore, the soldiers killed Mohammad Emad Hassanein, 21, at the entrance of the Al-Biereh city in the central West Bank.

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.

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.
