BLOOD IN THE DARK: RECENT DEATHS ON THE GAZA BORDER

Conflicting claims have been made about the five young men killed by Israel’s occupation forces in two separate occasions during the weekend of August 11th – 12th in the besieged Gaza Strip. Four youths were killed on the early hours of Saturday in the central part of the border at Deir al-Balah and a fifth on Sunday in the north at Beit Hanoun. EBnBILZXoAAvs8F

A claim has been made that most, if not all, would have been members of Hamas’ armed wing, the al-Qassam Brigades and especially of its group operating on the border with ethnically cleansed Palestine 1948, the so-called ‘Restraint Force’ which is intended to manage the border region and stop people from crossing or approaching too close to the border fence.

Further it is alleged that in the Saturday’s incident three of those killed (Ahmed al-Adaini, Abdullah al-Ghamri and Abdullah al-Hamaydeh) would have tried to stop the fourth person (Ahmad Tarabin or Abdullah al-Masri according to different reports) from attacking Israel’s occupation forces or would have been targeted by Israeli occupation forces after the fourth person would have opened fire at occupation forces after crossing the border.

There are doubts about the details, and overall whether the young men (aged from 18 to 20) did belong to that particular group of al-Qassam Brigades; the solitary man killed on Sunday in another sources is claimed by a relative to have been a member of al-Qassam Brigades but his role is not elaborated further.

This victim, Marwan Khaled Nasser is further reported to have tried to carry out an attack on the Israeli occupation forces on himself, both for political and personal reasons. After taking part in the Great Return March demonstrations he would have been experiencing difficult relationship with his family, which would have moved him from presence in demonstrations to a plan of a solitary attack.

There has now been three attempted attacks on Israeli occupation forces in August on the border, in two cases with solitary persons acting on their own, and none apparently with any support from any of the armed resistance factions. In Nasser’s case his relative, interviewed by the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, claimed that he acted on his own. There is little reason to doubt that, but to what extent these kind of individual and small group desperate actions are influenced by previous examples is open to debate.

The amount of equipment in the Saturday’s case where the four young men were killed at least implies significant preparation, while the two other examples – the other beyond Nasser being that of Hani Abu Salah(20) on August 1st – could have been made based on little planning and could be driven by examples of similar acts. ea6iifwwkaiocw0
