PALESTINE POST: ‪#‎Briefing‬ March 6th

(Summary of Israel War Crimes in the Occupied Palestinian Territories – OPT) ‪#‎Extrajudicial_Execution‬

1. Ahmad ‪#‎Dawabshe‬ to meet Real Madrid’s Player

Football Federation President Gen. Jibril Rajoub said in a press release this Saturday morning that the Spanish club Real Madrid will receive the Palestinian child Ahmed Dawabsheh on March 17. Rajoub said that the Spanish club, in coordination with the Ambassador of the State of Palestine to Spain, will receive the child Dawabsheh and two of his family members, as well as a member of Real Madrid Association in Palestine on March 17. He stressed that the club management has rapidly sympathized with Ahmad Dawabsheh situation/reality, following the spread of pictures of the child, dressed in the club’s shirt, while receiving treatment in the hospital. Ahmad is the only member of the Dawabsheh family who survived the Israeli terrorist arson attack on his home in Duma near Nablus, northern West Bank, which killed his 11-month-old brother, Ali, and both his parents, July last year. Ahmad is still recovering from third-degree burns in the hospital.

2. Extrajudicial Execution of Palestinian Mother of 4 

Palestinians in the occupied West Bank village of Husan late Friday mourned the death of a 34-year-old mother of four little children who was extrajudicially executed earlier in the day after allegedly ramming her car into an Israeli soldier at the Gush Etzion junction, who was “lightly wounded.” However no evidence of the accusation is known.
Locals said that the Israeli forces returned the body of Amani Husni Sabatin shortly after she was killed. Her body was then taken to Beit Jala Hospital for an autopsy.

3. Field Executions of Palestinian Children: Report

Forty-one Palestinian children have been killed in the occupied Palestinian territory since October, Defense for Children International’s Palestine branch (DCIP) reported Friday.
All were killed as a “direct result of intensified violence,” DCIP said in a statement, and all but one were killed by Israeli military forces. The number includes 31 Palestinians under the age of 18. Some were accused of knife or gun attacks, while others were executed during unarmed protest of illegal Israeli military presence in the OPT. The Israeli Military reports are not reliable or trusted, as they notoriously lie to the public to cover their continued occupation crimes.

4. Abductions & Live Fire

a.) Israeli occupation soldiers injure three Palestinian youth during clashes on Saturday in Beit Sira village, west of Ramallah, and they also abducted three others from their homes in al-Khalil.

b.) The Global Movement for the Defense of Children in Palestine said that the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) killed with live bullets 41 Palestinian children since the outbreak of the Jerusalem Intifada in the beginning of last October. 16 of the total children were killed since the beginning of this year. The Movement accused the Israeli occupation authorities of adopting the shoot-to-kill policy against children.

5. Increased Home Demolitions

a.) The national bureau for defending the land and resisting settlement on Saturday said that Israel has escalated recently the demolition policy it pursues against Palestinian homes and property in the West Bank and Jerusalem.

b.) An Israeli municipal crew escorted by policemen on Friday handed Palestinian citizens demolition orders issued against their homes in Silwan district, east of Jerusalem, according to the Wadi Hilweh Information Center – Silwan. The Israeli municipal authority in Occupied Jerusalem carries demolitions against Palestinian homes and structures almost on a daily basis at the pretext of unlicensed construction.

6. Political Prisoners & Hunger Strike

a.) The family of Palestinian prisoner Yazan Hanani has held the Israeli occupation authority fully responsible for his life, affirming that he has been on hunger strike for 18 days. Hanafi Hanani, the brother of the prisoner, said that his brother went on hunger strike in protest at his illegal administrative detention without charges or guilt.

b.) The Israeli Salem military court extended the detention of the injured prisoner Mohamed Zakarneh, 19, from Qabatia town in Jenin, for the second time in a row. Quds Press quoted family sources as affirming that Israeli authorities extended Zakarneh’s detention for eight days for the second time, pointing out that he is currently held in Afula hospital as he was earlier shot and injured by Israeli gunfire.

7. Uprooted Olive Farms For Illegal Settlement Expansion & Attacks on Farmers

a.) Israeli bulldozers uprooted at dawn Saturday dozens of olive trees in Beir Ballout town west of Salfit. Eyewitnesses said that a group of settlers stormed the area with bulldozers and uprooted dozens of olive trees as a prelude to confiscating the agricultural lands for expanding Leshem settlement.

b.) Palestinian farmers were forced to leave their fields early Saturday after Israeli forces opened fire east of Gaza City in the northern Gaza Strip, witnesses said.
Witnesses said that Israeli soldiers stationed on the Israeli side of the borderline opened fire on the farmers while they were tending to their land. No injuries were reported.

1. Attempted Murder at an Illegal Israeli Checkpoint

A Palestinian youth was shot and injured by the Israeli occupation troops. Tel Aviv accuses him of stabbing an Israeli soldier near the central bus station in Ashkelon city, in western 1948 Occupied Palestine, on Sunday morning. But we doubt those accusations. Knife stabbing is the most common cover-up for the new Zionist “shoot to kill” policy, which seemingly exempts Israeli’s from all punishment for their Extrajudicial Executions of Palestinians.
