BURIAL OF PALESTINIAN CITIZEN OF ISRAEL KILLED IN OCCUPIED EAST JERUSALEM

Israeli police handed the body of Ahmad Mohamed Mahameed(30) to his family on 01:00 am on Tuesday August 21st and his burial took place on 02:00 am in his home town of Umm al-Fahm in ethnically cleansed Palestine 1948.

After the human rights organization Adalah filed a petition in court against it, Israeli police dropped its original demand that the family would have to pay a bail of 100 000 shekels and make sure that no more than 50 people take part in his funeral.

Thousands of people are now claimed to have last night taken part in his funeral in the town of 60 000 people.

Three youths from Mahameed’s home town of Umm al-Fahm in ethnically cleansed Palestine 1948 who were arrested on Friday were reported to have been released on Sunday to a week-long home arrest.

Older articles have mentioned the arrest of several of Mahameed’s relatives during a raid on his home after he was killed, which might mean the youths in question. Israeli officials had suspected the youths in somehow aiding Mahameed in ‘planning’ the attack on Israel’s occupation forces, during which he was shot dead.

Ahmad Mahameed, a Palestinian citizen of Israel, was killed on Friday August 17th in the Old City of occupied East Jerusalem after he was captured on video trying to stab Israel’s occupation forces’ member. According to Israeli authorities, he had never been arrested and didn’t belong to any (political) groups.

According to his brother Nassim, Ahmad Mahameed suffered from ‘psychological problems’ and had tried ‘to commit suicide more than once’.

Nassim Mahameed blamed Israeli occupation police for shooting to kill and leaving his brother to die on the ground, saying that Ahmad could have been shot in leg instead and that he was killed only because he was an Arab.

Nassim Mahameed said that the family wasn’t aware that Ahmad had traveled to Jerusalem and at first couldn’t believe that he had been killed, thinking that his name must have been mistaken to that of someone else.

His brother was coming from the al-Aqsa mosque when he suddenly drew a knife and tried to stab a male Israel’s occupation forces’ member, who was able to evade the blade. Ahmad Mahameed was shot dead during a following struggle with occupation forces’ members.

ISRAEL’S OCCUPATION FORCES KILL ONE PERSON IN GUNFIGHT ON BESIEGED GAZA’S BORDER [Updated]

Israel’s occupation forces killed a young man either inside besieged Gaza Strip or just outside the small coastal enclave on Monday August 20th.
 
The victim was identified as 24-year-old Hani Mohammad Odah al-Majdalawi from Jabalia refugee camp by his family, who learned of his death when they saw his photograph spread by the Israeli press.
 
Hani al-Majdalawi was not a member of any political or armed group according to sources in social media.
 
The claims by Israeli occupation and Israeli media about the incident are to some extent contradictory and the video and few photographs in Israeli media offer little evidence either way; the video of the incident released by Israeli occupation is from a distance and reveals very little.
 
The incident took place either in the northern border of besieged Gaza or, in some Israeli sources, 500 meters inside ethnically cleansed Palestine 1948. In one version of the events by the Israeli occupation Hani al-Majdalawi would have shot at Israeli occupation forces’ patrol from a distance of 10-20 meters from the border fence without injuring anyone.
 
Afterwards al-Majdalawi would have been, in different sources, either shot dead by the occupation soldiers in the patrol or killed by a shell fired by an Israeli tank. An attack by Israeli occupation forces’ drone against the victim has also been claimed in connection with the latter claim and his killing by combined tank shelling and drone attack has become closest to an official Israeli narrative of the events.
 
The video and photograph show a sea shore with barbed-wire and al-Majdalawi laying apparently dead in a small ditch with what looks like a Kalashnikov rifle beside him. Another photograph shows two Israeli occupation forces’ soldiers with a body bag with his body assumingly in it – assuming that the latter photograph isn’t stock footage, but an original photograph of this incident.
 
Beyond these facts very little can be said. That this was a real attack on Israeli occupation forces seems very likely, but it also seems likely that this was an act by an individual, and not a planned operation by any organized resistance group – none of which to our knowledge have so far praised Hani al-Majdalawi’s actions.

ISRAEL’S OCCUPATION FORCES KILL ONE PERSON IN GUNFIGHT ON BESIEGED GAZA’S BORDER

Israel’s occupation forces killed a young man either inside besieged Gaza Strip or just outside the small coastal enclave on Monday August 20th. As of the writing of this the identity of the dead man is still unknown.

The claims by Israeli occupation and Israeli media about the incident are to some extent contradictory and the videos and few photographs in Israeli media offer little evidence either way; the video of the incident released by Israeli occupation is from a distance and reveals very little.

The incident took place either in the northern border of besieged Gaza or, in some Israeli sources, 500 meters inside ethnically cleansed Palestine 1948. In one version of the events by the Israeli occupation the young man would have shot at Israeli occupation forces’ patrol from a distance of 10-20 meters from the border fence without injuring anyone.

Another photograph shows two Israeli occupation forces’ soldiers with a body bag with the killed man’s body in it – assuming that the latter photograph isn’t stock footage, but an original photograph of this incident.

Beyond these facts very little can be said, especially as long as the victim’s identity is unknown. That this was a real attack on Israeli occupation forces seems very likely, but it also seems likely that this was an act by an individual, and not a planned operation by any organized resistance group.

PALESTINIAN CITIZEN OF ISRAEL KILLED BY OCCUPATION FORCES IN EAST JERUSALEM WAS ‘SUICIDAL’

Quds News Network reports that Israel would hand the body of Ahmad Mahameed(30), who was killed on Friday in occupied East Jerusalem, if the family pays a fine of 100 000 shekels and promises that no more than 50 people take part in his funeral.
 
Earlier report on Sunday had said that no date for handing over the body had been given to the family of Mahameed, a Palestinian citizen of Israel shot dead by Israel’s occupation forces.
 
Three youths from Mahameed’s home town of Umm al-Fahm in ethnically cleansed Palestine 1948 who were arrested on Friday were reported to be released on Sunday to a week-long home arrest.

PALESTINIAN CITIZEN OF ISRAEL KILLED IN OCCUPIED EAST JERUSALEM INCIDENT

30-year-old Ahmed Mohamed Mahameed from the town of Umm al-Fahm in ethnically cleansed Palestine 1948 was shot and killed by Israel’s occupation forces in occupied East Jerusalem on Friday August 17th.

The Palestinian citizen of Israel was shot after he tried to stab Israel’s occupation forces’ member with a knife in the Old City of the occupied Palestinian capital. The beginning of the incident and its aftermath were captured on video.

Based on the latter, Ahmed Mahameed would have died on the scene as a blanket is seen in one video being apparently thrown over his body.

There were early reports that the occupation forces’ member would have been injured or that a member of occupation police officer would have been injured in friendly fire in connection to the incident. Later articles no longer reported this.

In the aftermath Israeli occupation forces closed entrances to the Old City of East Jerusalem and the gates to al-Aqsa mosque compoud, forcing people to leave the compound and not allowing them later in for days’ final prayers.

2 KILLED, 270 INJURED AS ISRAEL ATTACKS GREAT RETURN MARCH PARTICIPANTS

On Friday August 17th Israel’s occupation forces attacked the 21st Great Return March demonstrations held in the besieged Gaza Strip. 2 people were killed and at least 270 other people were injured, of which 75 needed treatment in hospitals and 60 were shot with live ammunition.

ISRAEL DESTROYS AL-ARAQIB VILLAGE FOR 132ND TIME

On Thursday August 16th Israel’s regime destroyed the Bedouin village of al-Araqib in the Negev desert of ethnically cleansed Palestine 1948. This was no one off event, but the 132nd time the village has been demolished by Israeli forces since July 27th 2010.

Houses, barns and tents were demolished and taken away from the land owned by the villagers and at least three persons, sheikh Siyam at-Touri, his son Aziz at-Touri and Salim Abu Ashraf were arrested.

Israel’s regime refuses to recognize village, wanting its resident move to one of the segregated townships where it wants to seclude the remaining Bedouin population in the Negev so that their villages could be replaced with towns where only Israel’s Jewish citizens could live.

As part of this policy of continuing Nakba, the inhabitants of the four dozen remaining unrecognized Bedouin villages in the Negev receive no services from the state of Israel – but they do receive court orders to pay for the destruction of their own homes, like rest of the occupied Palestinians living on the other side of the Green Line.

Many of the villages were established by Israel’s regime itself, like the village of Umm al-Hiran in 1956, when Palestinian Bedouins were forcibly moved from their old homes to make place for Jewish settlement. In case of Umm al-Hiran, the Bedouins were forced to ‘agree’ to giving up their old homes for the new site – only for Israel’s Supreme Court to rip up the deal decades later based on Israel’s regime accepting a petition from a Zionist organization which wanted the site for a Jews-only town.
