Israel kills five Palestinians in less than one week

As Israeli moves with impunity, indiscriminately kill Palestinians – including minors – world leaders continue to turn a blind eye to the situation. With Trump’s newest Middle East Peace Plan, it has become clear that the US especially has no intention of protecting the rights and livelihoods of the Palestinian people.

Israel has killed four Palestinians in the West Bank, and one Palestinian in the Gaza Strip, in less than one week in the occupation’s latest human rights abuses. Several Israeli soldiers were reportedly injured during clashes as well.

One of those killed was Palestinian Shadi Banna, 45, from the city of Haifa. Banna reportedly opened fire at Israeli Border Police outside of Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, and was shot as he was trying to flee.

Two more Palestinians were killed during a home demolition raid, Isarel’s latest tactic at settler colonization. Israeli forces reportedly raided a home in the northern West Bank city of Jenin on early Thursday, belonging to the family of Ahmad Qanbaa. Qanbaa was previously imprisoned by Israel over an alleged attack on illegal Israeli settlers.

According to the Palestinian Center for Human Rights, eight family members, including two children, were living in the home that was demolished by Israeli authorities. When protesters gathered at the scene of the demolition, which remains a violation of the UN’s Fourth Geneva Convention, Israel shot and killed two of the young protesters.

Yazan Munthir Khalid Abu Tabikh, 19, was shot in the chest and killed immediately. Tariq Ahmad Luay Badwan, 24, was also killed when shot in the stomach. He was standing in the doorway to the police station, posing no threat whatsoever. Video footage of Badwan’s killing has been circulating online:

The fourth Palestinian was 16 year old Muhammad Suleiman Al-Haddad, who was shot numerous times in the chest during a protest in the city of Hebron on Wednesday. Israel’s excuse for killing the teenager point-blank was that he had reportedly thrown a molotov cocktail at Israeli soldiers.

Part of a wider movement of protests across Palestine against Trump’s new Middle East Peace Plan, Israel has been attempting to suppress the relatively peaceful protests with live bullets, tear gas, and even snipers, as in the case of the death of Al-Haddad.

The fifth Palestinian killed by Israeli forces was Khalil Al-Adham, who died on Thursday after being shot by Israeli soldiers during a small protest in the northern Gaza Strip.

As Israeli moves with impunity, indiscriminately kill Palestinians – including minors – world leaders continue to turn a blind eye to the situation. With Trump’s newest Middle East Peace Plan, it has become clear that the US especially has no intention of protecting the rights and livelihoods of the Palestinian people.
