Abdul-Jawad Hamdan Saleh

July 07, 2023: Abdul-Jawad Hamdan Saleh, 24, was killed by Israeli soldiers in Um Safa village, north of Ramallah, in the occupied West Bank’s central part.

The Palestinian Health Ministry said the slain Palestinian Abdul-Jawad Hamdan Saleh succumbed to profoundly serious wounds at the Istishari hospital in Ramallah.

The Health Ministry added that soldiers shot Abdul-Jawad, from Aroura village, northwest of Ramallah, with a live round in the chest.

It is worth mentioning that dozens of soldiers invaded the village before noon Friday, anticipating a procession against establishing an illegal colonialist outpost at their village’s southern entrance.

Bahar said the soldiers installed roadblocks, invaded buildings, and used their rooftops as monitoring towers before attacking the nonviolent protesters who marched following noon prayers.

Also, paramilitary Israeli colonizers tried to assault several Palestinians with batons and hurled stones at them before the Israeli soldiers shot a young Palestinian man with a rubber-coated steel bullet in the arm.

It is worth mentioning that, on June 22, the colonizers installed an outpost on the stolen Palestinian lands, built barns, and brought dozens of cows, and the village has been subject to constant attacks by the soldiers who burnt homes, cars and opened fire at the Palestinians and their property.

In related news, a young Palestinian man, Mahdi As’ad Al-Hilo, 20, was killed in an accidental explosion in Tulkarem, in the northwestern West Bank.

The Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad, said Mahdi was one of its members, and added that he was killed during “preparation and readiness.”

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) said the situation in Jenin refugee camp is very dire, especially since the Israeli army is preventing its ambiances from entering it and has constantly opened fire at medics and ambulances.

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 offensive on Jenin.

He 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.

Hundreds of Palestinian families 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.

Noam Raz

May 13, 2022: Noam Raz, 47, was killed by Palestinian fighters when Israeli soldiers carried out a dawn invasion into the village of Burqin and Jenin refugee camp, in the Jenin governorate, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

The Times Of Israel said, “Raz was one of the founding members of Kida,” an illegal colony near the central West Bank city of Ramallah.

Raz was part of a squadron of troops that attacked the family home of Mohammad al-Dab’i in the village of Burqin in a pre-dawn raid.

The soldiers besieged the home for hours, while Palestinian resistance fighters gathered inside to try to protect the home. Some of those inside the home eventually came outside with their hands raised and were taken by the soldiers, but Israeli forces continued the siege and began to open fire on those that remained inside, wounding eleven.

During the invasion of the Palestinian village, the invading Israeli soldiers came under fire from Palestinian resistance fighters, one of whom apparently fired a bullet that hit Raz. Israeli soldiers shot 11 Palestinians during their assault on the village.

During the invasion, the soldiers shot and seriously injured Daoud Zobeidi, 40, the brother of the famous Palestinian prisoner Zakaria Zubeidi, who was one of six prisoners who managed to escape from a high-security Israeli prison last year by digging a tunnel with spoons. Daoud died from his wounds two days later.

The high-profile prison escape was a source of embarrassment for the Israeli government, which prides itself on its security measures — arms and security equipment are Israel’s biggest export.

After he was shot, Raz was taken to the Rambam Hospital in Haifa with critical gunshot wounds, and later died of his wounds.

Raz died on the same day that a Palestinian who was wounded by Israeli soldiers last month while praying during the Holy Month of Ramadan died of his wounds, and just two days after a world-famous Palestinian journalist, Shireen Abu Akleh, was shot execution-style by Israeli soldiers while standing with other journalists in front of a stone wall in Jenin.

Shireen was shot with a live round in the head while wearing her press vest and helmet when an Israeli army sharpshooter fired one round at her.

The Ministry added that the soldiers first shot journalist Ali Sammoudi with a live round in the back, just as the journalists from various media agencies gathered in an open area in a clear line of sight from Israeli soldiers when the army committed its heinous crime.

Sammoudi, who was shot in the back, said that he, Shireen, and several other journalists gathered near a UNRWA-run school near Jenin refugee camp and were all wearing press vests and helmets before the soldiers shot him in the back and then shot Shireen with a live round in the head.
