2 Palestinians run over then detained by Israel soldiers

Israeli forces in the West Bank on 11 April 2022

Two Palestinians drivers were run over and detained yesterday by Israeli occupation officers who hit them with their vehicle near the town of Al-Khader to the south of occupied Bethlehem, reported Wafa news agency.

Local eyewitnesses said Israeli officers hit the Palestinians, who were riding on their motorcycle. The pair, from the Dheisheh Refugee Camp, suffered severe injuries.

Following treatment at the Palestine Red Crescent Society, the two were detained by the Israeli soldiers during a night raid.

Night raids by Israeli occupation forces are a near daily practice in the occupied West Bank. Israel claims that such raids are essential for intelligence purposes, but rights groups have slammed the practice, insisting that the goal is to oppress and intimidate the Palestinian population and increase state control. Like checkpoints and the illegal Separation Wall, the raids are part of the DNA of the occupation, say critics.

Israel has occupied the West Bank since 1967. Human rights abuses against Palestinians and breaches of international law are daily occurrences.

Israel ‘exploits’ Palestinian prisoners’ deteriorating health

People, holding photos of Palestinian prisoners and Palestinian flags, stage a demonstration demanding that the corpses of Palestinian prisoners who lost their lives in Israeli jails be returned to their families in front of International Committee of the Red Cross building in Gaza City, Gaza on May 23, 2022

More than 4,500 Palestinian prisoners have been enduring harsh detention conditions inside Israeli jails, including 600 sick detainees who do not have access to proper healthcare, Safa news agency reported yesterday.

Safa reported sources close to the prisoner issue saying that 200 of the 600 sick prisoners are suffering from chronic diseases and are not undergoing the necessary medical treatment.

A recent statistic issued by the Palestine Prisoners’ Club (PPC) stated that six prisoners inside Israeli jails have been diagnosed with cancer since June 2021, bringing the total number of prisoners suffering from cancer to 23.

Meanwhile, Safa reported that the Israeli prisoners of war held captive by the Palestinians have proper detention conditions and receive the best healthcare, citing the video footage of the Israeli prisoner who suffered from a sudden deterioration in his health.


However, former Palestinian prisoner Raafat Hamadouneh told Safa that the Israeli occupation “exploits the suffering and pain of the prisoners inside the interrogation rooms to grab false confessions.”

In addition, he said, the Israeli prison services do not recognise that a Palestinian prisoner is sick, “but when a prisoner starts complaining from pain, it reinterrogates him to get new confessions.”

Hamdouneh cited several cases, including children who suffered injuries caused by Israeli army fire being handcuffed and chained to their beds.

He also highlighted the case of a former female prisoner who gave birth while she was handcuffed and tied to her bed.

The former prisoner, who is active in support for prisoners’ issue, said that 228 Palestinian prisoners have died inside Israeli jails since 1967, including 72 who died as a result of a lack of proper healthcare.

Soldiers close The Entrance Of Al-Jalazoun Refugee Camp

On Thursday morning, Israeli soldiers closed the main entrance of the Al-Jalazoun refugee camp, north of the central West Bank city of Ramallah.

Local sources said several army jeeps invaded the area and blocked the main entrance of the refugee camp before preventing the Palestinians from entering or leaving it.

They added that the Palestinians had to take alternate, rough unpaved routes to leave the refugee camp on their way to their destinations.

It is worth mentioning that the Israeli army started, several weeks ago, building sections of the illegal Annexation Wall east of the refugee camp, an issue that led to frequent closures and obstruction of Palestinian traffic.

In the southern part of the West Bank in Hebron, Israeli military bulldozers demolished an agricultural shed owned by Azzam Ahmad Abu Rajab in the Barouq area, east of Yatta town, south of the city.

On Thursday dawn, the soldiers abducted ten Palestinians, including two guards of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, in several parts of the West Bank.

Also, the soldiers injured sixty-four Palestinians, including children and an infant, in Nablus, in the northern part of the West Bank.

Updated: “Israeli Soldiers Injure 64 Palestinians, Including Children, In Nablus”

On Thursday dawn, Israeli soldiers injured sixty-four Palestinians, including children and an infant, in Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

Ahmad Jibril, the head of the Emergency Department at the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) in Nablus, said the soldiers shot a young man with a live round in the thigh before the medics rushed him to a hospital in the city.

Jibril added that the soldiers shot sixteen Palestinians with rubber-coated steel bullets, including four who were hospitalized for further treatment.

PRCS medics also treated forty Palestinians who suffered the severe effects of tear gas inhalation, including four children and an infant who were rushed to Rafidia hospital for further treatment.

Jibril stated that five Palestinians suffered burns from Israeli concussion grenades and gas bombs, and two were injured after falling while the soldiers were chasing them.

Two Palestinian families had to be evacuated from their homes due to the intensity of the Israeli gas bombs.

The Israeli army said three Israelis, including a military commander, were injured during exchanges of fire with Palestinian fighters near Joseph’s Tombs area, in Nablus after the army accompanied hundreds of colonizers into the site.

On Wednesday night, Israeli soldiers injured twenty-two Palestinians, including children and one infant, who suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation, in Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

Ahmad Jibril, the head of the Emergency Department at the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) in Nablus, said the medics rushed a family, including four children and an infant, to Rafidia hospital, due to the severe effects of tear gas inhalation.

He added that the soldiers also caused twelve other Palestinians to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation and three who suffered burns.

The injuries occurred when many army jeeps invaded the eastern area of Nablus city to accompany dozens of colonizers into Joseph’s Tombs, leading to protests.

Some protesters hurled Molotov cocktails at the military vehicles, including the armored bulldozers that invaded the city.

The army fired dozens of live rounds, gas bombs, and concussion grenades at the protesters and many surrounding homes, causing injuries among families.

The army said Palestinian fighters exchanged fire with the soldiers near Joseph’s Tomb, mildly wounding three Israelis, including the Commanding Officer of the “Shomron Regional Brigade” of the Israeli army, who suffered a shrapnel wound.

Following the exchange of fire, the army removed the colonizers and withdrew its soldiers from the area.

The army frequently invades the eastern area of Nablus to accompany the colonists into the historic site, an issue that leads to protests, in addition to the ongoing invasions of homes and the abduction of many Palestinians.

Jews, Muslims, Christians, and Samaritans revere Joseph the patriarch, however, the Israeli military allows Jews to visit as part of organized pilgrimages, despite the site being in Area A where the PA has full control and prohibits Muslims from worshiping at the site.

Ultra-orthodox and nationalist Jews constantly try to visit the shrine without approval, as many Jews believe the tomb to be the final resting place of the biblical figure in the Old Testament.

Palestinians believe that Joseph’s Tomb is the funerary monument to Sheikh Yousif Dweikat, a local religious figure.

Israeli Colonizes Assault And Injure A Palestinian Man Near Ramallah

On Wednesday, a group of fanatic illegal Israeli colonizers assaulted a Palestinian man near Ramallah in the central West Bank, causing serious wounds to his face, including his jaw, left cheek, and eye socket.

The Palestinian, Arafat Tahhan from occupied Jerusalem, was heading to his land in Turmus Ayya town, north of Ramallah, in the central West Bank, when the colonizes ambushed his car.

He was with his children when what appears to be a preplanned attack occurred after he was ambushed and trapped, unable to drive away.

“The colonizers started throwing stones at us; they threw stones at me and my new car, causing damage and wounding me in the eye,” Arafat told WAFA News Agency, “My children, 7, 9, and 14 years of age, suffered severe anxiety attacks.”

“I was heading to my land after hiring a contractor and two of his workers to bulldoze and clean sections of my land to prepare them for planting,” the Palestinian added, “At approximately 9 in the morning, we saw the colonizers coming down from the mountain and rushing towards us before they started throwing stones at us. We tried to turn around and drive away, but they already closed the road with rocks; we were trapped, we had no way to go, and the colonizers started assaulting us.”

“The colonizers also chased the contractor and assaulted him, in addition to burning his car. They also assaulted another Palestinian causing him to fall down an altitude of about six meters,” Arafat stated, “I suffered a skull fracture, an upper jaw fracture, a fracture to my eye socket, and my nose, and I will be undergoing surgery Thursday. The doctors want to install implants on the left side of my face.”

“We contacted the District Coordination Office and the Israeli police, but they didn’t send anybody to the area under their control. Imagine if we did this to an Israeli colonizer or a soldier. Do you think that would be the end of the story! Arafat concluded, “The army would invade the entire area, break into homes, and abduct dozens of Palestinians, and as they usually do, they would also demolish the homes of Palestinians they believe are responsible for the attack. However, because we are Palestinians, the army won’t do a thing to those colonizers who attack and hurt us; our lives do not matter to them.”

The fishermen jumped out of their boat before the navy fired a missile at it and destroyed it.

The boat was within the fishing zone allotted for the Palestinians to sail and fish in the Gaza Strip.

On Wednesday morning, Israeli soldiers invaded Palestinian farmlands in Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

On Sunday night, Israeli navy ships attacked Palestinian fishing boats near the shore of Rafah, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.
