Hussein Jamal Taha

August 09, 2022: Hussein Jamal Taha, 16, was killed by Israeli soldiers who initiated a massive offensive into Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

Hussein was among three Palestinians killed by the Israeli soldiers, while at least 40 Palestinians were injured, including four who suffered serious wounds.

The three Palestinians killed in the Israeli attack on Nablus on August 9th are Islam Sbouh, 22, Ibrahim Nabulsi, 30, and Hussein Jamal Taha, 16.

The Al-Aqsa Brigades of the Fateh movement said Nabulsi and Sbouh were among its senior fighters, adding that Israel has been trying to kill them for a while.

Israel accuses Nabulsi of being behind dozens of shooting attacks along with many other senior resistance fighters, against its forces invading Nablus and surrounding communities.

On February 8, the army killed Ashraf Mohammad Mobaslat, 21, Mohammad Raed Dakheel, 22, and Adham Jamal Mabrouka, 26, from the al-Makhfiyya neighborhood in Nablus, after exchanging fire with him, including Ibrahim who managed to escape unharmed. 

Ahmad Jibril, the head of the Emergency Department at the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) in Nablus, said hundreds of soldiers in many armored vehicles and jeeps invaded the Eastern neighborhood and the Old City.

He added that dozens of Palestinians protested the invasion before the army started firing a barrage of live rounds, in addition to rubber-coated steel bullets and gas bombs.

The soldiers fired shells at a home they surrounded in the Old City of Nablus, leading to extensive exchanges of fire, before killing the three Palestinians, and wounding many others, including one in a very critical condition

Many Palestinian resistance fighters also exchanged fire with the invading soldiers in the Old City and several parts of the city.

Jibril said the soldiers shot at least forty Palestinians, including four who suffered critical injuries and added that the army also fired live rounds at Palestinian ambulances and prevented many medics from entering the areas it was invading.

He also said that the medics tried to reach a woman the soldiers shot, but the army prevented them from reaching her.

The Health Ministry said that two wounded Palestinians, including four in serious condition, were rushed to the Arab Specialty Hospital, and two, including one who was critically injured, were moved to the Najah Hospital.

Mosques in the city were using loudspeakers calling on the Palestinians who could reach hospitals to head there and donate blood due to the large numbers of wounded residents.

The soldiers imposed tight sieges on several neighborhoods, especially al-Habala, Faqqous and Sheikh Mosallam, closed many streets, mainly Faisal and Hittin, and broke into many buildings before stationing their sharpshooters, who fired many live rounds at the Palestinians.

A local Radio station, Shabab FM, announced that it had to stop its broadcast after the soldiers targeted it with many live rounds in the Old City of Nablus.

Hussein Hasan Qawareeq

July 29, 2022: Hussein Hasan Qawareeq, 60, died from serious wounds he suffered three days earlier when Israeli soldiers shot him near Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

The soldiers shot Hussein inflicting serious wounds before transferring him to the Israeli Beilinson Medical Center, where he succumbed to his wounds.

The slain man’s brother, Khaled Qawareeq, said the Israeli medical center officially informed the family of Hussein’s death.

The soldiers shot Hussein at the Huwwara military roadblock south of Nablus after the army claimed he did not heed their commands to stop. His family said Hussein had a mental illness.

Also Friday, the Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed that a Palestinian teenage boy, Amjad Nash’at Abu Alia, 16, was killed by Israeli fire in the al-Mughayyir village, northeast of Ramallah, and injured several others.

Mohammad al-Azizi

July 24, 2022: Mohammad al-Azizi, 22, was shot and killed by Israeli forces Sunday dawn, and nineteen were injured, including one who suffered a serious gunshot wound to the head, in the Old City of Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) confirmed that the soldiers killed Abboud Sobeh, 29, and Mohammad al-Azizi, 22, in the al-Yasmina neighborhood in Nablus’s Old City.

The PRCS added that the soldiers shot nineteen other Palestinians, including ten who were shot with live fire, among them one who was shot in the head and is in critical condition.

The incidents took place after undercover Israeli soldiers infiltrated Nablus before many armored military vehicles invaded it from several directions, resulting in exchanges of fire between the invading soldiers and Palestinian resistance fighters.

The soldiers surrounded a home where several Palestinian resistance fighters were located and exchanged fire with them for several hours before the army fired a few missiles at the property, killing the two young men, while the five others managed to escape unharmed.

The missiles caused excessive damage to the home and several surrounding homes, buildings, and managed cars parked on the sides of the street.

The soldiers withdrew from Nablus a few hours after killing the two Palestinians and wounding twelve, leaving massive destructed to homes and buildings.

Abu Rudeina, the spokesperson of the Palestinian President, denounced the invasion, the killing of the two Palestinians, and the injuring of the twelve and said that Israel is only interested in escalation and more violence.

Abu Rudeina added that the ongoing illegal Israeli occupation and oppression is meant to cause further escalation to avoid any peaceful solution to the ongoing conflict, based on all international legitimacy resolutions.

All the wounded Palestinians were shot with live rounds before the medics rushed them to Rafidia Hospital in Nablus.

They added that the medics had to take alternate and longer routes to reach the invaded areas after the army blocked many streets and refused to allow them to cross.

The Quds News Network said the attacks occurred when dozens of soldiers invaded the Old City, especially the al-Yasmina neighborhood, leading to protests before the army fired a barrage of live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, and gas bombs.

An Israeli army spokesperson said the soldiers invaded Nablus’s Old City to arrest Palestinians before Palestinian fighters exchanged fire with them.

The Palestinians used loudspeakers of several mosques calling for blood donations at the hospital and asking to help the families in the invaded areas.

The soldiers also invaded and searched several buildings overlooking the Old City and occupied their rooftops to use them as firing posts and monitoring towers.

During the invasion, the soldiers fired an anti-personnel rocket at a home they surrounded in the al-Yasmin neighborhood in the Old City.

The family was in the property and was pleading to be allowed to leave but the soldiers are surrounding their home.

Nablus has been subject to constant Israeli military invasions and violations, in addition to exchanges of fire, after the undercover Israeli soldiers assassinated three young men on February 8th, 2022.

On Saturday evening, the soldiers abducted six Palestinians from Shu’fat refugee camp, in occupied Jerusalem, after storming their homes and violently searching them.

Gheith Rafiq Yameen

May 24, 2022: Gheith Rafiq Yameen, 16, was shot and killed by Israeli forces in Nablus during a pre-dawn invasion. At least seventy-five Palestinians were injured during protests that took place after dozens of soldiers invaded Nablus in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

The Health Ministry said the child, Gheith Rafiq Yameen, 16, was rushed to Rafidia hospital in Nablus, suffering a serious headshot wound.

Gheith was instantly rushed to surgery but succumbed to his serious wounds, the Ministry added.

Ahmad Jibril, the head of the Emergency Department at the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS), said the soldiers shot fifteen Palestinians with rubber-coated steel bullets.

Jibril added that the army caused forty-one Palestinians to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation, one who suffered burns due to concussion grenades and another young man who fell while the soldiers chased him.

The soldiers also targeted a PRCS ambulance with gas bombs when the medics rushed a pregnant woman in labor to a Rafidia hospital in Nablus.

The protests and injuries occurred when the army accompanied many buses of illegal Israeli colonizers into Joseph’s Tomb, east of Nablus.

Media sources in Nablus said several Palestinian fighters exchanged fire with the invading soldiers.

ِAlso, illegal Israeli colonizers fired many live rounds and hurled stones at Palestinian cars in Huwwara town, south of Nablus.

Jews, Muslims, Christians, and Samaritans revere Joseph the patriarch; however, the Israeli military allows Jews to visit as part of organized pilgrimages, despite the site being in Area A, where the Palestinian Authority supposedly has full control. The Israeli military that governs Palestinians in the West Bank under martial law prohibits Muslims from worshiping at the site.

Ultra-orthodox and nationalist Jews constantly try to visit the shrine without approval, as many Jews believe the tomb to be the final resting place of the biblical figure in the Old Testament.

Palestinians believe that Joseph’s Tomb is the funerary monument to Sheikh Yousif Dweikat, a local religious figure.

Ihab al-Kilani

May 17, 2022: Ihab al-Kilani, 40, died due to complications from Israeli medical negligence while he was imprisoned by Israel.

The Palestinian Prisoner’s Society reported that Ihab al-Kilani, a resident of Nablus city, died a month after being released from Israeli imprisonment.

It pointed that al-Kilani was diagnosed with terminal cancer shortly after ending his 6-month administrative detention term, during which he was subjected to deliberate medical negligence.

The last time al-Kilani, a father of four – the youngest of whom is a three-year old girl, was arrested was in October 2021, and he spent four years and a half in Israeli imprisonment, mostly placed under administrative detention.

PPS presented statistics showing that 22 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli custody are suffering from different degrees of cancer, most notably Nasser Abu Hamid, a 49-year-old resident of Al-Amari camp who has been detained since 2002 and is serving seven life sentences and an additional 50 years in prison.

PPS added that 600 prisoners are sick, including 200 who suffer from chronic diseases while holding the Israeli occupation authorities fully responsible for al-Kilani’s death and its repercussions.

Israel’s widely condemned practice of administrative detention allows the detention of Palestinians without charge or trial for renewable intervals ranging between three and six months based on undisclosed evidence that even a detainee’s lawyer is barred from viewing.

The US State Department has said in past reports on human rights conditions for Palestinians that administrative detainees are not given the “opportunity to refute allegations or address the evidentiary material presented against them in court.”

Amnesty International has described Israel’s use of administrative detention as a “bankrupt tactic” and has long called on Israel to bring its use to an end.

According to the latest figures from Addameer, the Palestinian Prisoner Support, and Human Rights Association, there are currently 4,450 Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli prisons and detention centers.

This number includes approximately 530 Palestinians placed under “administrative detention”, which allows the detention of Palestinians without charge or trial for renewable intervals ranging between three and six months based on undisclosed evidence that even a detainee’s lawyer is barred from viewing.

Mass arrest of Palestinians is nothing new. According to a 2017 report by Addameer, over the past 50 years, more than 800,000 Palestinians have been imprisoned or detained by Israel, this figure is now believed to be closer to 1 million. This means that about 40% of Palestinian men and boys living under military occupation have been deprived of their freedom. Almost every Palestinian family has suffered the imprisonment of a loved one.

Fawwaz Ahmad Hamayel

April 14, 2022: Fawwaz Ahmad Hamayel, 45, died from serious wounds he suffered a day earlier after Israeli soldiers shot him with an expanding bullet in the chest in Beita town, south of Nablus.

The Palestinian Health Ministry has confirmed his death and said the expanding bullet caused excessive damage to his lung, kidney, liver, and diaphragm.

Fawwaz was rushed to The Specialized Arab Hospital in Nablus, where he underwent surgeries and remained in the intensive care unit until he succumbed to his serious wounds.

The Health Ministry said the expanding bullet caused excessive damage to his lung, kidney, liver, and diaphragm.

His aunt said Fawwaz was walking down the street when the soldiers shot him while invading the town.

His cousin said a large military force invaded the town at dawn before the soldiers stormed and violently searched many homes causing severe damage.

He added that Fawwaz was among many other Palestinians who tried to reach those homes to help the families with the damage caused to their properties by the soldiers.

On Wednesday morning, April 13, the soldiers killed a Palestinian lawyer, Mohammad Hasan Assaf, 34, after firing many live rounds at his car in the Industrial Area in Nablus city.

The soldiers also injured more than twenty-five Palestinians after shooting them with live rounds and rubber-coated steel bullets in several villages and towns in Nablus.

On Wednesday evening, the soldiers killed a child, Qussai Fuad Hamamra, 14, in Husan village, west of Bethlehem, in the occupied West Bank. The child was killed not far from where the Israeli soldiers killed Ghada Ibrahim Ali Sabateen, 48, on April 10, 2022.

Hamayel was an accountant and the director-general of the Youth Development Department in occupied Jerusalem. Hundreds of Palestinians marched in his funeral procession in Beita.

Nader Haitham Rayyan

Nader RayyanMarch 15, 2022: Nader Haitham Rayyan, 17, was shot and killed by Israeli forces who invaded Balata refugee camp, east of Nablus in the northern part of the occupied West Bank. In addition to killing Nader, the soldiers also injured three other youth with live rounds.

Medical sources in Nablus have confirmed that the soldiers fatally shot Nader Haitham Rayyan, 17, in addition to causing moderate-to-severe wounds to three other Palestinians. Palestinian medics rushed the slain child and the wounded Palestinians to Rafidia hospital in Nablus.

According to investigations conducted by the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights (PCHR) and an eyewitness statement, at approximately 06:00 on Tuesday, 15 March 2022, an Israeli special force from “Yamam Unit” sneaked into al-Quds Street adjacent to Balata camp, east of Nablus, via white Volkswagen “Shuttle” vehicle and surrounded ‘Ammar ‘Arafat (22)’s house. A few minutes later, several Israeli backup patrols moved into the camp, while “Yamam Unit” arrested ‘Arafat and slowly withdrew towards Huwwara military checkpoint. During their withdrawal, Palestinian young men chased the patrols and threw stones at them, while Israeli soldiers opened fire at the Palestinians, wounding 3 of them, including a child.

At around 06:30, a motorcycle carrying two children was passing behind the Israeli patrols and traveling on the left side of al-Quds Street near al-Quds School. Israeli forces opened fire at the motorcycle, so the two children got off and ran towards a sloping area near the school while Israeli soldiers continued to open fire at them. After the soldiers’ withdrawal, the body of Nader Haitham Fathi Rayyan (16) was found and taken to Rafidia Hospital in Nablus. It turned out that Rayyan sustained wounds in his abdomen after being shot with a live bullet that entered his abdomen and exited his chest. Also, he was shot with another live bullet that penetrated his chest from the right side.

Media sources said several armored military vehicles invaded the al-Quds Street in Balata, stormed and ransacked the home of Ammar Arafat before abducting him.
