Ahmad Nasr Jarrar

February 06, 2018: Ahmad Nasr Jarrar, 22, was killed by Israeli forces who invaded the village of al-Yamoun, near Jenin in northern West Bank, and surrounded a house where he was staying.

Although Jarrar was suspected by the Israeli authorities of the murder of an Israeli settler, identified as Rabbi Raziel Shevach, who was killed in a drive-by shooting, the Israeli military extra-judicially assassinated him, without filing charges or arresting him for the crime.

The soldiers, including a canine unit, were heavily deployed in the area, and conducted searches of many homes, in addition to using the rooftops of several buildings as monitoring towers and firing posts.

They also demolished a wall and a shed, and uprooted many olive trees, as they set up a perimeter around the Ahmad’s location.

The military operation was reportedly carried out by regular army units and undercover officers, who were given “shoot-to-kill” orders.

Israeli media outlets said the soldiers located a large cache of bullets and alleged that Jarrar had been planning a serious attack.

Local Palestinian media sources reported that Jarrar exchanged fire with the soldiers, and that the soldiers destroyed the home where he was hiding.

Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman congratulated the army for what he called “a successful operation,” that resulted in Jarrar’s death.

Following the military invasion and the death of the Palestinian, dozens of local youngsters hurled stones at the soldiers, who fired many live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets and gas bombs.

It is worth mentioning that, on January 18th, the soldiers killed Ahmad Nasr’s cousin, identified as Ahmad Ismael Jarrar, 31, in Wadi Burqin town, after they mistook him for his cousin.

In addition to killing Ahmad Ismael Jarrar, the soldiers demolished Ahmad’s home, and two other homes.

On February 3rd, the soldiers killed Ahmad Samir Abu ‘Obeid, 19, with a live round in the head, during a massive military invasion into Burqin, also searching for Ahmad Nasr Jarrar.

February 03, 2018: Ahmad Samir Abu ‘Obeid, 19, was killed by Israeli soldiers with a live round in the head, during a massive military invasion into Burqin town, west of Jenin, in the northern part of the West Bank.

The Palestinian Health Ministry has confirmed that the soldiers shot Ahmad with a live round in his head, causing a very serious injury, before medics rushed him to Jenin Governmental Hospital, where he died from his wounds.

The Ministry added that the soldiers also shot two other young Palestinian men with live rounds in their legs, and six with rubber-coated steel bullets, in addition to causing dozens to suffer the severe effects of teargas inhalation, after the army attacked locals, who protested the invasion.

The army also arrested four young Palestinian men, and demolished a room and a barn, in addition to causing damage to several structures and cars, before withdrawing from the town.

The invasion was carried out by twenty-two armored military vehicles, and two bulldozers, before the soldiers broke into and searched many homes, and used K9 units in searching the properties, causing anxiety attacks among many Palestinians, especially children.

After the army withdrew from the town, hundreds of Palestinians marched in Ahmad’s funeral procession, while chanting against the ongoing Israeli military occupation.

The Israeli invasion into several areas in the Jenin Governorate started when the soldiers invaded Kafeer village, south of the Jenin city, after surrounding it and declaring it a closed military zone.

The soldiers conducted extensive military searches of homes and detained two siblings, identified as Thieb Walid Ershaid, 43, and his brother Qa’qaa, 42, after surrounding their homes.

The shooting death of Abu Obeid came during the invasion of Wadi Burqin by the Israeli military early Saturday morning to besiege the home where the army believed that the wanted man Ahmad Nasr Jarrar, was hiding.

Ahmad Nasr Jarrar was wanted by the Israeli military for allegedly killing an Israeli settler on January 8th.

Following that killing, the Israeli military invaded many nearby villages and conducted house-to-house searches.
