Israeli information center for human rights in 1948 Occupied Palestine B'Tselem documented the execution of a Palestinian youth,  Abdulfattah al-Sharif, by an Israeli soldier while he was on the ground after being shot by Israeli gunfire in al-Khalil city. 

A video recorded by a field researcher at the Israeli center showed that the injured Palestinian was moving while a soldier stepped forward and shot him directly in the head from a close distance leading to his immediate death. 

B'Tselem said, in a press statement, that the video, which was taken by Emad Abu Shamsiya, showed the neglect of Israeli soldiers and medics who were present at the scene. Israeli medics, however, offered aid to the Israeli soldier whose injury was slighter than the injury of martyr Sharif.

So-called Parliament of the Israeli Apartheid regime bill to deport families of Palestinian martyrs approved

March 24, 2016, OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)--

 So-called Parliament of the Israeli Apartheid regime (Knesset) passed on Wednesday a bill to deport families of Palestinians killed by Israeli forces and accused of carrying out attacks against Israelis.

The bill was initiated by Israeli Minister of Transport and Exploration, Israel Katz, and submitted to the Knesset by Deputy David Bitanem. It was supported by representatives from Likud, the Jewish Home, and other parties, including Yish Atid.

Israel’s legal adviser has previously rejected the bill, saying: “The deportation of families of attackers to Gaza or Syria might touch Israel’s position and lead to its global isolation.”

Katz also proposed another bill calling for the relocation of the families in the West Bank and putting more restrictions on their movement.

Speaking to the Israeli TV Channel 7, Katz said: “The bill got large support from the [ruling] coalition and from the opposition. We will put the bill for final approval next week. Terrorism will decrease as fast as we can approve this bill.”

He added: “This bill is not an alternative to the army, Shabak, police and security activities. It is a complementary measure to control the minors.”
