Several Israeli Soldiers Wounded in Shooting Attack on Bus

In the Jordan Valley, in the eastern part of the West Bank near Jericho on Sunday, unknown assailants opened fire at an Israeli bus transporting soldiers to a military base, injuring five soldiers and the civilian driver of the bus.

The injuries of two of the men were described as moderate (including the driver, who sustained a gunshot wound to the face), and the other four had injuries that were described by medical personnel as ‘mild’.

The two men with moderate injuries were transported by helicopter to the Ramban Medical Center in Haifa.

The Hamas resistance movement issued a statement that they were in support of this attack, which was in response to the “Zionist occupier and their settlers’ crimes and aggression against Al-Aqsa Mosque and prisoners”. This is a reference to the ongoing and frequent invasions by Israeli soldiers and settlers into the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the third-holiest site in Islam, and to the detention of thousands of Palestinians in so-called ‘administrative detention’ in which Palestinians are imprisoned by Israeli authorities without any charges or access to legal representation.

The bus that was shot at was carrying soldiers from the Kfir Brigade in the Jordan Valley. According to Israeli media sources, the shots were fired from a passing truck. It is unclear how the shots were fired from a passing vehicle, since photos of the bus show a number of bullet holes in the front part of the windshield, not on the side.

According to the Israeli sources, the Palestinian men who shot the bus then tried to throw bottles stuffed with rags and ‘kerosene to try to light the bud on fire, but one of the bottles ignited their truck on fire. They then allegedly drove another kilometer and pulled over when their vehicle caught fire. continuing on foot.

Two men were arrested by Israeli forces under suspicion of involvement in the attack. They have been identified as Mohammed and Walid Turkman from the Jenin area in the northern West Bank. They were found to be seriously injured from the burning vehicle, and taken to the burn center at Sheba Medical Center in Tel Hashomer, where they were interrogated by Israeli soldiers.

The attack took place on Route 578, as the soldiers were traveling between B’qaot to B’qaot junction near Hamra illegal Israeli colonial settlement.

Israeli sources reported that a soldier in the Lions of the Jordan Valley Battalion, told them that “Within a few minutes, we arrived at the location and began searching. Through my binoculars, we identified two suspects from a distance and we operated to stop the suspects and apprehend them for further investigation”.

Surrounding Palestinian villages remain on lockdown as Israeli troops punish the entire Palestinian civilian population for the actions of the two men who shot at the bus.

Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid issued a statement that “Security forces acted quickly and decisively to treat the wounded and apprehend the terrorists. We will continue and put our hands on anyone who tries to harm the citizens and soldiers of the State of Israel.”

Israeli Army To Demolish A Home In Occupied Jerusalem

On Sunday, the Israeli occupation army handed a demolition order to a Palestinian in the al-Isawiya town, in the occupied capital, Jerusalem, in the West Bank.

Media sources said the Palestinian, Fadi Obeid, built his home seven months ago to shelter himself and his family.

The City Council in occupied Jerusalem refused to grant the Palestinian a construction permit and informed him that he must demolish his property at his own expense, or the city would demolish it using its workers and equipment and impose excessively high fines and fees in addition to the demolition cost.

While Israel continues to build and expand its illegal colonies, Palestinian communities and towns in occupied Jerusalem and various areas in the occupied West Bank continue to be denied the right to build homes and property.

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”.

WAFA: “Israeli Settlers Demolish Mobile House Near Nablus”

NABLUS, Sunday, September 4, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers today demolished a Palestinian-owned mobile home on the road connecting the occupied West Bank cities of Jenin and Nablus, according to a local activist.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activities in the northern West Bank, said that a group of settlers, under the protection of Israeli forces, demolished a mobile home placed inside a land owned by a local resident on the road between Jenin and Nablus.

He added that settlers also cut off and stole the entire fence surrounding the land.

In many cases of settlers’ attacks against Palestinians, Israeli forces offer protection to settlers and turn a blind eye to attacks committed against locals.

Settlements are illegal under international law as they violate Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention, which prohibits the transfer of the occupying power’s civilian population into occupied territory.
