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.

Aseel Abu ‘Oun

August 26, 2017: Aseel Tareq Abu ‘Oun, 8, was killed after being struck by an Israeli settler’s car in the Nablus district of the northern West Bank.

Palestinian medical sources said that the girl was run over near Furush Beit Dajan village, in the Nablus district.

The child’s uncle Dirar Abu ‘Oun, said the settler was driving on street more than 10 meters wide, while the child was walking along with her brother on the sidewalk.

“How can the Israeli driver accidentally ram her with his car on a very wide road, and she was on the sidewalk, designated for pedestrians” he stated, “The settler also tried to flee the scene when the child’s father, who was in a nearby agricultural land, rushed to her rescue, and prevented him from fleeing.”

Israel’s Magen David Adom national emergency service, accompanied by several army vehicles, arrived at the scene and evacuated the girl to the hospital, but she was pronounced dead on arrival.

Her corpse was later handed to her family before hundreds of Palestinians participated in her funeral ceremony, during evening hours of the same day.

The funeral procession took off from Rafidia Hospital, in Nablus, heading towards Jaba’ town, southwest of Jenin, in the northern part of the West Bank. Aseel was from Jaba’ town, south of Jenin. Source: IMEMC
