Updated: “Soldiers Injure Two Palestinians, Including A Journalist, Abduct Three, Near Hebron”

On Saturday evening, Israeli soldiers shot two Palestinians, including a journalist, abducted three others, and caused dozens to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation in Tarqoumia town, northwest of Hebron in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

Dozens of Palestinians gathered in the at-Taybeh area, also known as al-Harsh, protesting the ongoing Israeli attempts to annex their lands illegally.

The soldiers attacked the nonviolent protesters with live fire, gas bombs, and concussion grenades, shooting a young man with live fire and a photojournalist, Abdul-Hafith Hashlamoun, with a concussion grenade in the head, and causing dozens to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.

The soldiers also abducted three young men and took them to an unknown destination before declaring the entire area a closed military zone.

The Palestinians marched to their land, threatened with illegal annexation, and were rehabilitating and tending them, building retaining walls, and removing weeds when the soldiers attacked them, leading to a scuffle.

It is worth mentioning that the Israeli army recently handed orders to ten Palestinians forcing them out of their lands, planted with olives and grapevines.

The Israeli army claims that lands, more than six hundred Dunams, are “state lands,” although the Palestinians privately own them.

Israel is trying to expand Adora and Telem illegal colonies by confiscating the Palestinian lands in the area to allow for the new constructions.

All of Israel’s colonies 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”.

On Saturday afternoon, Israeli soldiers and illegal colonizers attacked a nonviolent procession in Tarqoumia town, northwest of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

Suleiman Ja’afra, a member of the Land Defense Committee in Tarqoumia, said the Palestinians held the procession to protest the ongoing Israeli attempts to occupy their lands in the at-Taybeh area, also known as al-Harsh.

He added that the soldiers and many colonizers attacked the violent protesters after a verbal confrontation that took place when the colonizer tried to prevent the Palestinians from removing the weeds and building retaining walls on their lands.
