3 More Palestinian Teens Dead after Alleged Stabbing
Monday November 23, 2015 18:52 by IMEMC News & Agencies
Israeli occupation soldiers shot and killed a Palestinian teenager on
Monday afternoon after he allegedly attempted to stab an Israeli soldier
at the Huwwara checkpoint south of Nablus, Israel's army said.
Israeli army spokesperson said that as the Palestinian approached the
checkpoint, he "drew a knife and attempted to attack a soldier."
She said that the soldier "responded to the immediate danger" and opened
fire on the Palestinian, "resulting in his death."
Palestinian Ministry of Health identified the alleged attacker to Ma'an
News Agency as Alaa Khalil Sabah Hashah, 16.
A Palestinian woman
identified as Samah Abd al-Mumen Ahmad from Ammuriya village was shot in
the head in the crossfire, witnesses said.
A bus driver, Adham
al-Sharfa, stated: “I saw what happened with my own eyes as Israeli
soldiers opened fire at a youth for attempting to stab an Israeli
soldier and then several Israeli soldiers arrived and shot the youth
more than 10 times and he fell to the ground.”
security sources said Samah was shot in the head while sitting inside
her car near where the incident occurred.
Her injuries were
reported as critical. No Israelis were reported injured during the
Huwwara checkpoint lies just south of Nablus on a major
thoroughfare for both Palestinians as well as Israelis living in illegal
settlements in the northern occupied West Bank.
On Sunday, an
Israeli settler ran over a 16-year-old girl at Huwwara checkpoint before
getting out of his car and shooting her dead, saying that he believed
she was about to carry out a stabbing attack at the checkpoint.
The settler was later identified by Israeli media as Gershon Mesika, the
former head of the Samaria Regional Council, which represents Israel's
illegal settlements in the northern West Bank.
Later on Sunday,
Israeli forces imposed a curfew on Huwwara village after a Palestinian
threw a Molotov cocktail at a settler's vehicle passing through the
village, Israel's army said.
Also on Monday,
Palestinian man was shot dead after stabbing and
killing an Israeli settler on Route 443 west of Ramallah,
Israel's army said.
An Israeli occupation army spokesperson said
that a "Palestinian murdered an Israeli and wounded another in a
stabbing attack" with the injured victim evacuated for treatment.
Israeli occupation forces responded on site to the incident and shot
dead the Palestinian attacker, the spokesperson added.
Palestinian Ministry of Health identified the suspect as Ahmad Jamal
Taha, 16, from the Qutna village near Ramallah.
The attack took
place at a gas station along Route 443 west of Ramallah, with the Magen
David Adom ambulance service treating the wounded at the scene.
The latest incident brings the total death toll on Monday to three
Palestinians and one Israeli after a 16-year-old Palestinian girl was
shot dead in Jerusalem
earlier in the day, after allegedly carrying out a stabbing attack
near the Mahane Yehuda market.
Israeli media initially reported
that two Israelis were wounded in the alleged attack, although a
spokesperson for Hadassah hospital later confirmed that one of those
injured was a 70-year-old Palestinian resident of Bethlehem, who had a
light stabbing wound in his back.
The other was a 27-year-old
Israeli security guard who was shot in the hand by friendly fire. An
Israeli security guard, who had been driving near the Mahane Yehuda
market on Jaffa Street, got out of his car when he saw the two girls and
quickly shot dead 16-year-old Hadeel Wajih Awwad and severely wounded
her cousin, 14-year-old Norhan Awwad.
Video footage showed both
girls running at the security officer, apparently waving scissors,
before the security guard and another Israeli managed to knock the girls
to the ground. Once on the ground, the security guard ran forward and
shot each of them several times.
Editor's note: In recent months,
a bizarre number of such incidents have been documented. Although many
reports would seem genuine at first glance, discrepancies in details and
outright admission of mistaken intent has caused many to question their

Israeli occupation soldiers' Night Raids Continue in Al
Monday November 23, 2015 20:04 by International Solidarity Movement
On Tuesday, 17th November, several groups of Israeli occupation
soldiers raided houses in the Wadi al-Hurriya neighborhood of al-Khalil,
an H1 district legally outside of Israeli control.
Israeli forces were present in the area, divided into groups of 7-12
soldiers and entering every house and business on designated streets. At
some of the residences they entered by force, violently smashing through
They checked every I.D card of the residents and also,
according to soldiers who confronted the ISM volunteers, searched for
weapons. Later in the night they informed the volunteers that they were
looking for weapons and collecting data in order to prevent potential
stabbings: “yes, some people are scared. But some people have reason to
Each group of soldiers patrolled different streets
and dark alleys, checking each house and entering with backpacks,
mapping equipment, bullet-proof vests, and cocked machine guns. On
entering houses, 2-3 soldiers remained outside to “secure” the entrance,
periodically pointing guns at passers-by and preventing vehicle and
pedestrian passage through the streets.
The raids lasted until at
least 12.30am, after which one unit was witnessed occupying the second
floor of a Palestinian house – the other half of which was inhabited by
a Palestinian family – and could be heard setting up sleeping equipment.
According to the soldiers questioned on site: “no, we are not inside a
Palestinian house, they are not living in this house.”
residence is located within 500 meters of an army base and checkpoint
bordering the H2 restricted area of al-Khalil. It was reported later
from residents who were in contact with ISM that furniture and property
was damaged on the night. This is typical of night raids on Palestinian
houses, and in other incidences money and other property has also been
stolen. While these raids have been used extensively in the al-Khalil
district in recent weeks as part of a tactic of intimidation, it is
unclear as to whether the policy of raiding the H1 district and
squatting family homes will continue.
