‘Israel’ detained over one million Palestinians since Nakba in 1948

Occupied Palestine (QNN) – Over one million Palestinians have been detained by the Israeli occupation forces since the Nakba in 1948, Palestine Center for Prisoners’ Studies said on Sunday.

The center stressed that the case of Palestinian detainees in Israeli jails is one of the key issues resulted from the Israeli occupation of Palestine since the Nakba in 1948.

It indicated that a quarter of the Palestinians living in the occupied Palestinian territories have been detained by the Israeli occupation forces since the Nakba, pointing out that it’s the highest detention rate in the world.

Director of the center Riyad al-Ashqar said that the Israeli occupation authorities continue violating international laws and conventions concerning the rights of the prisoners, using illegal policies such as random detentions and internationally banned torture.

Al-Ashqar added that the Palestinian detainees are exposed to severe physical and psychological torture throughout detention.

He pointed out that the Israeli occupation does not distinguish between children, women, young and elderly people, MPs and dignitaries, patients, or even persons with disabilities, indicating that all of them are exposed to brutal crimes.

About 4,700 Palestinians, including 32 women and 160 children, are currently languishing in Israeli detention jails.

Al Jazeera reporter shot, killed by Israeli forces in West Bank city of Jenin

Israeli occupation forces shot dead Al Jazeera Arabic correspondent, Shereen Abu Aqleh, during a military raid in Jenin refugee camp in the occupied West Bank on May 11, 2022

Occupied Palestine (QNN)- Israeli forces shot and killed a veteran Al Jazeera Arabic correspondent during a military raid on Wednesday in Jenin refugee camp in the occupied West Bank.

According to the Qatar-based news channel and the Palestinian Health Ministry, Shereen Abu Aqleh was shot in the head while she was covering an Israeli military raid into the Jenin refugee camp despite wearing a press vest.

She was rushed to Ibn Sina hospital in critical condition and was announced dead soon afterwards.

Another journalist identified as Ali Asmoadi who works for the Jerusalem-based Al-Quds newspaper was also shot in the back by Israeli live bullet during the same raid and he is in a stable condition.

Middle East Eye reporter Shatha Hanaysha said she and a group of six journalists, including Abu Akleh, were together when they came under fire by Israeli occupation snipers and that there was no fighting in the area.

The [Israeli] gunfire didn’t stop. Although Shereen was lying on the ground, the gunfire didn’t even stop. People also couldn’t reach her from the other side,” Hanaysha said.

“People were trying to reach her, even the private vehicle that took her to the hospital was hardly able to reach her [due to the continuing Israeli gunfire]”

“One young man jumped off a wall and pulled me out. He then pulled Shereen out. This proved to me that we, journalists, were deliberately targeted,” Hanaysha confirmed.

“We were a group of journalists. We were wearing a press vest. Until this moment, I’m still in my press vest. Shereen was even wearing a press-marked helmet. She was wearing a helmet.”

“This means he who fired at her was intending to shoot her in an area of her body that’s uncovered. I consider what happened an assassination of all of us, journalists.”

“If my colleague Mujahed and I had tried to reach her, we would’ve been directly targeted by gunfire. People were warning us that the [Israeli] snipers were not far away from us. We were opposite to the building where the Israeli snipers were positioned. This man was present there and he told us that the snipers were there. He was seeing them. The Israeli soldiers were opposite to us and were seeing us.”

“We were standing in an area where the soldiers could identify us as journalists. I told one of my colleagues: “let’s go out of this area.””

“But he insisted that we remained in the same area so that the soldiers could identify us as journalists.”

“And then we would advance. We stood in an area opposite to the Israeli soldiers. We stood as a group and then we advanced. The gunfire started after we reached an area where we could not pull back.”

“This means that if the gunfire was not aimed at our killing, then the snipers would’ve started the gunfire before we reached that area,” Hanaysha said.

“What we know for now is that the Palestinian Health Ministry has announced her death. Shereen Abu Akleh, was covering the events unfolding in Jenin, specifically an Israeli raid the city, which is north of the occupied West Bank, when she was hit by a bullet to the head,” Al Jazeera’s Nida Ibrahim said, speaking from the Palestinian city of Ramallah.

“As you can imagine, this is a shock to the journalists who have been working with her.”

Speaking through tears, Ibrahim said Abu Akleh was a “very well respected journalist” who has been working with Al Jazeera since the beginning of the second Palestinian Intifada in 2000.

Al Jazeera’s bureau chief in Ramallah, Walid al-Omary, said that there had been no shooting carried out by Palestinians, disputing an Israeli statement that claimed the possibility.
