Several Palestinian citizens on Saturday morning suffered from their exposure to tear gas during clashes between local youths and the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) in Qaffin town, north of Tulkarem.
During its presence in the town, the IOF raided the house of Sheikh Majdi Ajouli, a prisoner in Israeli jails, and wreaked havoc on its furniture at the pretext of conducting a search.
Sheikh Ajouli, 50, was one of the detainees who released as part of the 2011 prisoner swap deal between the Hamas Movement and the occupation state, but he was rejailed in 2014 and his life sentence was reinstated.
The Israeli occupation police on Thursday rearrested Palestinian prisoner Mohamed al-Abbasi, a resident of Silwan district in east Jerusalem, immediately after he was released from the Negev jail.
According to an informed source, police officers arrested Abbasi and took him to the Moskobiya detention center in western Jerusalem after he completed his 45-month prison term and left the Negev jail.
However, the Israeli magistrate court in Occupied Jerusalem on Friday ordered his release on condition of not entering the holy city for 10 days.
A number of citizens were injured yesterday during the occupation forces’ suppression of a protest event in refusal to establish a settlement outpost in the northern town of Asira, north of Nablus.
Dozens participated in the march called by the northern municipality of Asira and the national action factions to hold Friday prayers in the Beit Zaki area of Jabal Ebal, which settlers are seeking to seize.
The occupation forces were present in the area, as well as buses of settlers, preventing the participants from reaching the site, and they fired bullets, sound and tear gas at them.
One of the participants was shot in the foot and taken to hospital, while others were suffocated by tear gas.
15 participants were injured in the Kafr Qaddum weekly march, in addition to injuries due to collective suffocation during violent confrontations in the village of Kafr Qaddum after the start of the weekly march and its entry into the tenth year of weekly confrontations and events.
The occupation soldiers used methods of repression against the participants, including live bullets, rubber, metal, and spongy, and tear gas canisters, and ambushes to arrest the participants, targeting water tanks, and seizing rooftops to snip the participants from them.
And due to the suspension of Friday prayers, the gathering took place in the square of the Omar Bin Al-Khattab Mosque at twelve o’clock and was launched, and leadership cadres participated in the march.
Murad Shtaiwi, coordinator of the weekly march, told Al-Quds: “The occupation army took revenge on the participants, which led to injuries in their ranks, at the beginning of the tenth year of the life of the weekly march calling for opening the main entrance, and the march became a title for the popular resistance, despite the bill that was paid. Detained, injured, and disabled, an elderly martyr, and financial fines.
Occupied West Bank (QNN)- Confrontations swept the occupied West Bank on Friday after the Israeli army repressed peaceful protests that went to the streets rejecting the Israeli annexation plans.
The Palestinian Red Crescent said that its teams have dealt with 15 injuries during confrontations in Kafr Qaddoum near Qalqilya. The injuries were caused by Israeli rubber-coated metal bullets and tear gas canisters.
The Red Crescent also dealt with six injuries during confrontations with the Israeli army in Asira ash-Shamaliya in northern Nablus. The Israeli army opened fire at medical teams, causing damage to an ambulance.
In the same vein, confrontations erupted between Israeli occupiers and native Palestinians in Bab Az Zawiyeh in occupied Hebron.
In Salfit, native Palestinians looked to a plan, threatened by Israeli confiscation plans, nd protested against the Israeli annexation.
Gaza (QNN)- Two infants have died due to the Israeli siege on the Gaza Strip while they were waiting for Israeli permits to get medical treatment in the occupied territories.
Medial permits for Gaza’s patients were suspended on May 19 when the PA announced stopping all forms of coordination with ‘Israel’. It was a protest movement against Israel’s plans to annex parts of the West Bank in July.
The first child died last week, nine-month-old Omar Yaghi, who awaited permission to exit Gaza for surgery for a cardiac abnormality last week. Anwar Harb died nine days after his birth, also from a cardiac disease on last Monday.
The United Nations Special Envoy to the Middle East Nickolay Mladenov said that on Wednesday “Both ‘Israel’ and the Palestinian Authority PA were responsible for the death of the child Omar Yaghi”.
Jehad Yaghi, Omar’s grandfather said “He would have survived if he had his remaining two surgeries which were supposed to be on May 21 at Sheba hospital in Israel”.
He added that “Omar would have been in his family’s arms by now if he had undergone surgery when it was scheduled. The doctors confirmed as much, however, he passed. An angel who had a charming smile, he passed away only because he was sick in Gaza”.
Omer was born with congenital malformations in his heart. Two hours after his birth he was moved to the intensive care unit at the Abdel Aziz Al-Rantisi Hospital for children in Gaza. After it became clear that no hospital in Gaza was capable of performing the surgery he needed due to the lack of medical supplements that resulted from the Israeli siege, his family got permits for four different surgeries in ‘Israel’.
Some Palestinians reached out to the Red Cross and Physicians for Human Rights imploring the aid agencies to urgently file permit requests. A few were successful in getting permits to get treatment in Israeli hospitals but it is still unclear if most Palestinians patients who need surgeries or chemotherapy scheduled in ‘Israel’ were successful.
According to the WHO before the pandemic began over 1,750 patients from Gaza sent permit applications each month for treatment in Israeli and West Bank hospitals each month. The huge numbers raise concerns about the deteriorating medical and living conditions in the besieged enclave and if the world is serious about taking any measures to end the Israeli siege.
The occupation army arrested at least 9 citizens, at dawn on Thursday, from Jenin, Tulkarm, Hebron, and Jerusalem.
Local sources in Jenin reported to “Al-Quds” the arrest of the former prisoner Muhammad Al-Jamal and the attack on his brother Rushdi Al-Jamal, the arrest of the former prisoner Nasser Al-Jada from Kharouba neighborhood, Muhammad Omar Zakarneh from the town of Qabatiya, and Wissam Sami Al-Masri (26 years old) from Tubas.
In Tulkarem Governorate, the young Mahmoud Abdel Rahman Khalaf was arrested after his house was raided in the southern neighborhood, and the young Khaled Adnan Salman from the town of Ramin.
The occupation forces also arrested the boy, Alaa Muhammad Al-Titi (17 years), from Al-Fawwar camp in Hebron, and Muhannad Hussein Al-Natsheh (18 years), from Hebron, in addition to the arrest of Ahmad Muhammad Derbas from the town of Al-Issawiya in Jerusalem.
