Palestinian Worker Chased by Army, Seriously Injured near Jenin

Israeli forces, on Sunday, chased Palestinian workers, causing one to sustain a serious injury, near the apartheid wall near Rummanah village, northwest of Jenin, in northern occupied West Bank.

The family of the young man told Palestinian WAFA News Agency that the young man, Mahmoud Qasrawi, 24, from Misilyah village, suffered severe bleeding from his head after falling while he and other Palestinian workers were being chased by the army.

Qasrawi was transferred directly to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at the Rafidia hospital in Nablus.

No further information was available at the time of this report.

On March 25, Palestinian worker, Mohammad Mousa Abu Dalal, 23, from Shabtin village, fell to his death while being chased by Israeli police in Jaffa, Tel Aviv in Israel.

The Israeli police pursued the young construction worker, causing him to fall to his death down an elevator shaft.

According to the Middle East Research and Information Project;

“The number of Palestinian workers in Israel and Israeli settlements was an estimated 130,000 in 2019, according to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD)—but is likely to be higher due to the number who cross into Israel without permits.[1] Most Palestinians work in Israel’s construction sector, where it is estimated that they make up 65-70 percent of the workforce.”

Israeli Colonists Injure A Palestinian Near Salfit

Illegal Israeli colonialist settlers attacked, on Sunday evening, many Palestinian farmers on their lands in Kafr Ed-Deek town, northwest of Salfit, in central West Bank, wounding a young man, in addition to causing damage to a car.

Fares ad-Deek, a Palestinian researcher specialized in Israeli affairs, said many colonists came from the illegal Bruchin outpost, which was installed on stolen Palestinian lands, and started throwing stones at the farmers.

He added that a young man, identified as Salman Shawkat Ahmad, was struck with a rock in the head, suffering moderate wounds.

The colonists also caused serious damage to a car, owned by Rami Tahseen, after he parked it near his land.

Ad-Deek also said that the colonists carried out a similar attack on Saturday, causing damage to at least one shed, in addition to assaulting the farmers and trying to force them out of their lands.

It is worth mentioning that Israeli soldiers arrived at the scene and informed the Palestinians that they needed to leave their own lands because the colonists “were picnicking in the area, and “have the right to be there.”

The colonists recently demolished an agricultural shed, in addition to cutting and uprooting dozens of Palestinian olive trees and saplings.

Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention states: “The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.”

Israeli navy attacks Palestinian fishing boats in Gaza

Gaza (QNN)- Israeli occupation navy today’s morning attacked Palestinian fishermen sailing off the northern Gaza shore and damaged one boat.

WAFA reported that the fishermen were sailing within the allowed three nautical miles when the Israeli navy opened gunfire and water houses at them causing damage to one boat, forcing the fishermen to return to the shore.

However, no injuries were reported.

The Israeli navy deliberately targets fishing boats on a daily basis, preventing nearly 3600 fishermen from earning living. The Israelis open fire, use water cannons, and damage fishing nets and boats’ engines in their efforts to terrorize fishermen.

Lately, three Palestinian fishermen were killed when an explosive-laden Israeli drone blew up, as it was stuck in the fishermen’s fishing net and exploded while they were working in Al Qararah sea in the south of the besieged strip.

Israeli forces quell peaceful rally marking Palestine Land Day

Nablus (QNN)- Israeli occupation forces today quelled a peaceful rally marking the 45th anniversary of Land Day in Sebastia village in Nablus north of the occupied West Bank.

#Israeli occupation army and extremist settlers break into a Roman-era stadium and site in the village of Sebastia, north of the occupied West Bank, today.


The occupation forces fired tear gas canisters and stun grenades towards the participants commemorating Land Day, causing many to suffocate due to excessive tear gas inhalation.

The participants in the rally in Sebastia were commemorating Land Day because of Israel’s ongoing violations against the village and its indigenous, as Israeli occupation authorities are planning to open a police center in the archeological building in Sebastia, as a prelude to take over the land.

Palestinians today mark the 45th anniversary of the Land Day, by organizing rallies and marches in several Arab towns, mainly in the towns where Israeli occupation forces killed six Palestinians and injured hundreds on March 30, 1976.

Palestinians were protesting that day against Israel’s expropriation of thousands of donums of their lands. Since then, this day has been known as Land Day.

On this day, Palestinians emphasise their resistance to Israeli occupation and steadfastness. They remind the world that Israel’s colonisation of their land has been continuous since the establishment of the so-called ‘Israel’.
