Israel’s occupation forces have today killed in East Jerusalem’s Damascus Gate Siham Ratib Nimer(49), the mother of Mustafa Nimer, who himself was killed by Israeli occupation forces on September 5th 2016 aged 27.
Israeli occupation claims that Siham Nimer would have tried to commit ‘a stabbing attack’ with ‘pair of scissors’ and was ‘neutralized’. (At first it was claimed that she would have had ‘a knife’.)
Medical crews were not allowed to reach her but were turned away by Israeli occupation forces, which didn’t give her any first aid themselves.
Whether she could have been saved with immediate medical aid, can’t be known at this point.
But what can be known is that the claim of ‘stabbing attack’ must be scrutinized with utmost scepticism – because Israeli occupation was proved to have lied when it killed her son, and to have planted in a knife in the car in which he was as a passanger.
Israeli occupation has arrested Siham’s husband Talal and their daughter, who witnessed her mother’s killing. Mother and daughter are said to have been returning from a visit to the al-Aqsa mosque compound when Siham was killed.
According to family members, Siham had suffered from depression after her son’s death.
THE KILLING OF MUSTAFA NIMER
Mustafa Nimer was killed on September 5th 2016 in Shuafat refugee camp in occupied East Jerusalem, when returning from a shopping trip in a party of four, travelling in two cars. He was on a visit from Palestine 1948’s Ramat Gan, where he lived with his Jewish girlfriend.
Israeli occupation claimed that Mustafa and his cousin and brother-in-law Ali Nimer who was the driver and survived the shooting, had tried to commit ‘a ramming attack’ against occupation forces.
Israel showed a photograph of a knife on Mustafa’s seat, atop his blood as ‘evidence’ of a planned attack.
But then a video of the shooting was published and it showed that the car had been moving at a slow speed and not towards the occupation soldiers when they opened fired and showered the car with sixty bullets.
Faced with this Israel had to admit that there was no ramming attack, but it put Ali Nimer on trial for supposed ‘reckless driving’, accusing him of Mustafa’s death. Threatened with a long sentence, he had to ‘confess’.
Not a single media organ in the so-called ‘West’ dared to mention the planted knife – we assume that they don’t dare to do more than cut and paste Israeli occupation claims this time either.
Neither son nor mother will get justice from those who prattle endlessly about press as ‘the fourth estate’ and the importance of ‘investigative journalism’ and declare ‘Je Suis Charlie’.
