Updated: “Israeli Army Claims A Palestinian Snatched Weapon From Soldier”

Update: Ali Sha’rawi said his brother Mohammad, 25, did not snatch the soldier’s weapon, adding that what happened was that the soldier struck Mohammad with his weapon before it accidentally fell inside his car, causing him to panic and drive away.

“My brother was driving an unlicensed car, and when the soldier stopped him and asked him for his ID and registration, he only handed him his ID, an issue that angered the soldier who struck my brother with his gun before he lost grip of it, causing it to fall into Mohammad’s lap.” Ali said, “My brother panicked; he was afraid the soldiers would kill him and claim he was trying to attack them or take the weapon. So, he drove away to save his life from imminent death, just like how so many Palestinians were killed at roadblocks for simple traffic accidents or misinterpretation by the soldiers.”

Ali added that his brother went to a Palestinian Preventative Security Center in Hebron, where he handed the officers the soldier’s weapon and informed them of what happened before asking them to detain him.”

“My brother did not attack or attempt to attack the soldiers; he did not deliberately take the weapon,” Ali said, “Mohammad was just terrified and panicked. What happened was an accident that could have led to his death.”

The Israeli army said it is in pursuit of the Palestinian who according to the army “grabbed an M-16 rifle from the soldier and escaped.”

The army also said no soldiers were hurt and added that it does not believe the incident was a deliberate attack.

Israeli Colonizers Reinstall Output Near Nablus

On Wednesday dawn, a group of illegal Israeli colonizers installed an outpost on Palestinian lands near the northern West Bank city of Nablus, just hours after the army removed it.

Media sources said the colonizers gathered, shortly after midnight, in the al-Jneina area near the al-Lubban ash-Sharqiya village, south of Nablus, and installed the new illegal outpost on stolen Palestinian lands.

They added that colonizers reinstalled the outpost in the same area where, on Tuesday evening, the army evacuated it.

The outpost is in an essential location just half war near the main Nablus-Ramallah Road, used by thousands of Palestinians in their daily commute.

All of Israel’s colonies and the colonialist outposts in the occupied West Bank, including those in and around occupied East Jerusalem, are illegal under International Law, the Fourth Geneva Convention, in addition to various United Nations and Security Council resolutions. They also constitute war crimes under International Law.

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.” It also prohibits the “individual or mass forcible transfers, as well as deportations of protected persons from occupied territory”.
