Mahmoud al-Sa’di

November 21, 2022: Mahmoud al-Sa’di, 17, was shot and killed by Israeli forces during a military incursion into al-Hadaf neighborhood adjacent to the Jenin refugee camp.  The soldiers also injured 4 civilians during the incursion, and cordoned off a residential house, abducting the inhabitant of the house.

According to eyewitness accounts, Mahmoud was on his way to school and was not involved in any protests or stone-throwing at the invading Israeli army.

Mahmoud was a youth educator at the Jenin Freedom Theatre, where he offered classes in self-expression and drama for children and youth. In a statement, the Jenin Freedom Theatre said, “Mahmoud was part of the Freedom Theatre family. A skilled and passionate trainer for the Child & Youth Program, he brought his unique character to this work, bringing hope and a new way of seeing the world to young people. Mahmoud had a promising future ahead of him, and we were excited to see where his career in theatre would lead him. We are in shock at his murder, in a situation that is all too familiar. As another family from Jenin refugee camp buries their child, we are left to ask again, when will these crimes end?”

According to an investigation by the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR), at around 07:30 on Monday, 21 November 2022, an Israeli special force from “Yamam Unit” sneaked into al-Hadaf neighborhood adjacent to Jenin refugee camp, western Jenin, and cordoned off a house belonging to Rateb Raed Rateb Bali (22).

Moments later, Israeli foot soldiers, backed by military vehicles and a drone, moved into and besieged the neighborhood as well as tightening the siege on the area surrounding the house.

They started heavily shooting at the cordoned house and then fired an Energa grenade at the roof of the 2-story house, forcing Rateb Bali to surrender to the Israeli military.  During the house siege that continued till 09:10, Palestinians gathered and threw stones at the Israeli military vehicles in the neighborhood while Israeli forces opened fire at them.

As a result, 5 Palestinians were injured, including Mahmoud ‘Abdel Jalil Hadi al-Sa’di (17), from Jenin refugee camp, who was injured with a bullet in his abdomen near al-Kina intersection near al-Hadaf neighborhood when he was on his way to his school (Farahat Hashad High School for Boys.)

Al-‘Sa’di was taken, along with the others who were injured, to Bin Sinai Private Hospital in Jenin and Dr. Khalil Soliman Governmental Hospital.  At around 10:00, the medical staff at Bin Sinai Hospital announced the death of Mahmoud al-Sa’di after succumbing to his injury.

PCHR’s investigations emphasize that Israeli shooting was unjustified as there was no imminent threat or danger posed to the soldiers’ lives; a pattern that has repeated itself consistently for the past weeks.

PCHR reiterates its call upon the international community to take immediate action to end Israeli occupation’s crimes and double standards when it comes to international law and urges the ICC Prosecutor to act seriously with regard to the situation in Palestine.

PCHR also demands the High Contracting Parties to the Fourth Geneva Convention fulfill their obligations as per Common Article 1 of the Convention, “undertake to respect and to ensure respect for the present Convention in all circumstances,” and their obligations under Article 146 of the same Conventions, i.e., to hold accountable persons accused of committing grave breaches of the Convention.

Mohammad Maher Sa’id (Ghawadra)

  October 14, 2022: Mohammad Maher Sa’id (Ghawadra), 17, died from serious wounds he suffered along with his cousin, on September 2022, before they were abducted by the soldiers allegedly for being behind an attack on a bus transporting Israeli soldiers to a military base.

Mohammad suffered serious burns to most of his body when he and his cousin, Mohammad Walid Ghawadra, 22, reportedly attacked, on September 4, the bus transporting Israeli soldiers to a military base with Molotov cocktails and fired many live rounds at it.

The Israeli army claimed that one of the Molotov cocktail bottles ignited in their truck before they allegedly drove another kilometer and pulled over when their vehicle caught fire and continued on foot before Israeli soldiers abducted them.

According to Israeli media sources, the shots were fired from a passing truck. However, it is unclear how the shots were fired from a passing vehicle since photos of the bus show many bullet holes in the front part of the windshield, not on the side.

Mohammad remained in critical condition at the Tal HaShomer Israeli hospital due to burns that almost covered %90 of his body. The doctors treated him for severe wounds and amputated his left arm. The Palestinian Prisoners’ Society (PPS) said Mohammad’s cousin was seriously injured in the incident.

An Israeli court ordered their continued detention at the medical center, awaiting trial before Mohammad Maher Ghawadra succumbed to his serious wounds.
