ISRAEL KILLS 15-YEAR-OLD IN AN ATTACK ON THE DEFENDERS OF JABAL AL-‘ARMA

A child was killed and up to 115 others were injured, three of them critically, when Israel’s occupation forces attacked local people defending the Jabal al-‘Arma mountain from takeover by illegal Israeli settlers on Wednesday March 11th.Hamayel-678x455

Israel’s occupation forces arrived at dawn to the mountain to support the illegal settlers and attacked the defenders with both live and rubber-coated steel bullets, sonic grenades and tear-gas, launched both from armoured vehicles and a drone.

15-year-old Mohammad Abdul-Karim Hamayel was shot in head with a live bullet, according to some reports with a banned expanding bullet. The shooting was captured on video from a distance of a few dozen meters. He was taken to the Rafidia hospital in Nablus where he succumbed to his wounds.

ES09a5gXkAEEMxXThree other people, including a 17-year-old teenager, were shot in head with rubber-coated steel bullets, suffering critical injuries. The teenager, who was shot twice, and another person suffering from bleeding in the brain, are both in a life-threatening condition. The third person’s condition has stabilized.

43_0_15_11_3_20201A total of 112 people suffered injuries, 18 of them from being shot with rubber-coated steel bullets and 90 from inhaling tear-gas. There are reports of Israel’s occupation forces and illegal settlers hampering the operation of ambulances.

STRATEGIC MOUNTAIN

Jabal al-‘Arma is situated near the small town of Beita, south of the city of Nablus. It has an archaeological record of human habitation going back at least to the Bronze Age.

ESzyhRaXQAAcntKIllegal Israeli settlers have made three attempts to capture the mountain, strategically important because of its springs and cisterns. The first attempt on February 28th and a second one on March 2nd led to hundreds of people being injured.

Illegal Israeli settlers made a third attempt during the Tuesday – Wednesday night and were resisted by hundreds of locals who rushed to the mountain. The settlers want to establish an illegal colony outpost to the mountain to control the water, and to make it a tourist site for their fellow illegal settlers.

THE BIAS OF THE OCCUPIER: IS ISRAEL SUFFERING FROM THE DUNNING-KRUGER EFFECT?

David-Dunning-et-Justin-Kruger-600x338When we look at the behaviour of Israel’s regime and its supporters, it has some similarities to the cognitive bias what is called the Dunning-Kruger effect after professors David Dunning and Justin Kruger, who did pioneer work on it in 1999 while at the Cornell University.

The Dunning-Kruger effect describes people who perform poorly in a particular subject and are often incapable of recognizing their own limits.  Popularized, it’s often given the form “Incompetent people who think themselves competent”.

These subjects think they perform better than they do, they underestimate the capabilities and performance of others, which altogether gives them a sense of false self-confidence, which  strengthens their belief in themselves and this leads them to make more mistakes.

13370473904_c46e16d06e_bThis doesn’t mean that the people to whom the Dunning-Kruger effect refers to have low intelligence; their behaviour might be, but they themselves are not, ‘stupid’. Everyone has weaknesses they are incapable of noticing or admitting, and thus taking into account, which causes problems to them and others.

If you think you are doing better than you are, if you think others are doing worse than they are, then you will end up overestimating your own current situation and what you can achieve in future. The seeds of your future failure are sown by your inability to construct a realistic view of your current situation and your own ability to handle it.

DUNNING-KREGER EFFECT AND ISRAEL

We propose that the Dunning-Kreger effect can be applied to look at the behaviour of the leaders of Israel’s regime, which itself might be considered a kind of gestalt, and its supporters.

s_topTEMP425x425-1246
Netanyahu, his rival Gantz and president Rivlin

The current drive to annexation and permanent Apartheid by Israel’s regime shows many symptoms of the Dunning-Kruger effect. All words of warning are pushed aside, whether external or internal, and a vision of permanent 21st century Apartheid is seen as sustainabe and without real challenges.

As Israel has gotten away with war crimes and human rights violations for soon 72 years, all the time protected by shifting superpower backing, this has bred a belief that all the ‘successes’ in ethnic cleansing, occupation and land-theft are down to Israel’s superiority over Palestinians and its other neighbours.

israeli-kicking-reutersTo the Israeli elite and most of its majority population, Israel’s success is not down to super-power backing, 150 billion dollars in aid from the US alone and political protection in international areas by US and other allies, but instead it’s down to Israel just being better in everything because of its own, superior nature. Israel is not only more powerful, but its populace and leaders more intelligent and capable.

This is combined in the Israeli psyche with the idea that past success can only lead to more success, and that failures on the part of Israel’s oppressed victims – with the odds stacked against them – can only lead to more failures and defeat on their part. The past is a map of the future, and all the warning Cassandras can be dismissed.

This, identifying a false pattern or a pattern that can’t be sustained endlessly, is also connected to the Dunning-Kruger effect, strengthening the person’s false belief in their own competence. This mentally locks them into a behaviour which in the end can be self-destructive.

WallIsraelPal.12SEpt2016Incompetence backed by overwhelming brutality can seem like success for a long period of time, especially when the incompetent brute will be protected from consequences of (and thus finding out) their own incompetence by powerful backers. In this case, the current iteration of those backers, the Trump administration, is itself a troupe full of persons exemplifying the Dunning-Kruger effect.

Can you now see how Israel’s behaviour brings to mind the people that Dunning-Kruger effect describes? Israel overestimates the stremgth of its own current unnamedsituation and its ability to sustain the current reality of oppression and segregation, while it underestimates the Palestinians and the possibility of change in the attitudes and behavour of rest of the world.

As a Zionist society Israel has successfully convinced itself that the only thing ever needed is more of the same: Occupation, illegal colony building and segregation.

THE DUSTBIN OF HISTORY

Israel is little different from a sheltered, at best a mediocre progeny of a wealthy, powerful family, whose protective relatives ease his way in the world while obstructing those who stand on his way. He will end up seeing himself as an eminently successful person, who has earned his station thanks to his superiority to those who he Wooohas pushed aside.

He will believe that before him awaits only more success, and that nothing, and no one can stand on his way. This sets him apart from the truly competent people who tend to underestimate themselves and overestimate others’ capabilities. As a human being he will look like Donald Trump or Jared Kushner, and as a political entity like Israel.

MIDEAST ISRAEL PALESTINIANSBut what happens when the protective shell around him, constructed by his powerful protectors, fails? What happens when he has to face the challenges unaided, just depending on his own real, and not exaggerated, abilities?

The Dunning-Kruger effect proposes that the more people learn about their real circumstances, the better they eventually are responding to the challenges they face. Israel has been able to avoid this collision with facts, but eventually the moment comes when the Potemkin’s Facades erected with the help of the ‘West’ will fall away.

Then the reality bites in, and the person or state has to rapidly come into terms with the reality around them and adjust to it – or face the dustbin of history. Nothing indicates that Israel is capable of the former.

HOW MANY VICTIMS OF THE HOLOCAUST ROSE FROM THE DEAD WHEN AUSTRIA CONDEMNED BDS?

How many Jewish victims of Austrian Fascism rose from the dead when the Austrian parliament on Thursday February 27th unanimously voted to condemn the BDS movement as ‘antisemitic’ and call that no support to the boycott of illegal Israeli colonies on occupied Palestinian land should be given?

dt.common.streams.StreamServer

None.

Just like no Jewish victims of German fascism rose from the dead when Germany’s parliament passed a similar resolution, or when the German government wrote to the Internatuonal Criminal Court that it must give Israel’s regime immunity from prosecution by declaring that Palestine, a member state of the Rome statutes since 2012, is not under its jurisdiction.

unnamed (1)Ash clouds didn’t form around the crematoriums in Auschwitz, pouring down inside them, the doors of the ovens used to burn a million people didn’t open from the inside and resurrected people, dead almost eighty years, didn’t crawl out, restored to life by the human sacrifice of Palestinians by Germany and Austria.

These resolutions bring only more death, Palestinian deaths mainly but also Israeli Jewish ones, and they don’t reduce the German and Austrian guilt one bit. If the German and Austrian politicians think it eases their consciences, then there is something very wrong with them: You don’t atone for the past atrocities committed by your country by aiding ongoing war crimes.

outsideThe Austrian and German parliaments voted to support illegal colonies on land brutally occupied for 53 years, they declared that the occupied people living under Apartheid rule are ‘antisemitic” for calling for the boycott of their oppressors, and those companies, Israeli and international, which profit from their oppression and suffering.

Hitler in 1938 with the Austrian chancellor Arthur Seyss-Inquart, executed for war crimes in 1946.

To pretend that occupied Palestinians are ‘antisemitic’ for calling for the boycott of those who profit from their suffering is as disgraceful as the myth that Austria was ‘the first victim of Nazism’. Austria, after all, became a fascist dictatorship before Germany, was allied to the Fascist dictatorship of Mussolini before he and Hitler joined forces, and the ruling Austrian Fascists allowed the Austrian Nazis to the Austrian government years before the Anschluss.

Fascist Austria was not a victim of the Nazis. Adolf Hitler was an Austrian himself. Anschluss in 1938 was not a real invasion, but a fusion of two Fascist states: There was no Austrian armed resistance at any point to the Nazi rule. Just like there is no Austrian support for Palestinian liberation now.

Palestinians are not antisemites for calling for the boycott of their occupiers and oppressors. To compare boycott of companies profiteering from war crimes to attacks on Jewish shops during the Kristallnacht is a monstrous act against the occupied Palestinians and the memory of the Jewish victims of the Nazi rule.

It’s not the role of Palestinians to be sacrifical lambs so that ER3jmUcXUAE1TIQEuropean politicians and parties – in Austria and Germany most of the latter including as founders former Nazis – can massage their bad consciences by helping to spill Palestinian blood, and denouncing them for not accepting to be oppressed slaves of an Apartheid state forever.

REALITY BITES: NO ALTERNATIVE TO RIGHT OF RETURN

UNRWA-pr-May19The United States government under Donald Trump, controlled in this regard by the pro- Greater Israel billionaire Sheldon Adelson, has waged a brutal campaign against the rights and survival of Palestinian refugees since 2017, cutting US aid to both American and international organizations like UNRWA that have supported them, and trying to defund UNRWA and end the refugee status of Palestinian refugees. This is based on a kind of magical vein in Zionist thinking – that if you ignore a serious issue, it will cease to exist; even when it takes the form of millions of people.

A MAGIC WAND TO MAKE PALESTINIAN REFUGEES TO DISAPPEAR

It has been Zionist and ‘Western’ illusion since 1948 that Palestinians would just ‘disappear’ among the Arab populations of the Middle East: If you ignore them, they won’t exist.

LEBANON-BARBERThis has basis in underestimating the strength of Palestinian identity and it also oddly overestimates the eagerness of the host countries of Palestinian refugees in the Middle East to accept and assimilate them. United States’ presidents one after the another have declared how it is impossible for Israel to accept large number of returning Palestinian refugees, while taking it for granted that neighbouring countries can and are willing to assimilate large number of refugees after marginalizing them for over 70 years.

Yarmouk_0We hear it repeated still by those, like the various members of the Trump administration, who demand that UNRWA should be closed and Palestinian refugees’ refugee status removed. This, according to people who otherwise declare that people who themselves practice Judaism, or whose ancestors did, have a right to return to Palestine after 1900 years, would solve the Palestinian refugee problem.

Just wave a magic wand and all Palestinian refugees disappear!

NO ALTERNATIVE TO RIGHT OF RETURN

Israel, which has treated Palestinian refugees with extreme hostility, campaigns for this, expecting other states to put aside their own demographic fears and embrace those whose homes and homeland Israel itself stole.

DTvDOCpW4AAEhPuThe other states across the Middle East have no intention to do so. Nor are those ‘Western’ states, which have been successfully courted by Israeli regime to support them in international diplomatic arenas, have any interest in receiving any Palestinian refugees themselves for settlement. The solution, according to them, is again just to forget that Palestinian refugees exist: 5 900 000 registered refugees will, apparently, just vanish into thin air if you take away their refugee status.

At best the other Middle Eastern states will continue to tolerate Palestinian refugees to differing extent, but they won’t naturalize them, and Palestinian refugee camps will continue to be marginalized enclaves of poverty and possible sources of instability to societies which host but refuse to naturalize or fully integrate their inhabitants. The Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon, whose populations have greatly increased with arrival of both Palestinians and non-Palestinian Syrians from Syria since 2011, are an example.

1432139327This is not a sustainable situation in the long term and it’s barely sustainable today, as the situation of Palestinian refugees in Syria for example show. Over 4000 have died in the war, over 300 are missing and hundreds of thousands have had to become refugees again either inside Syria or abroad. Palestinians rank among the most common refugees trying to cross the Aegean into Europe from Turkey.

IMG_0059-minNeighbouring Lebanon, which has had no census since the French rule in 1932 for domestic political reasons, will not allow Palestinians to become full Lebanese civilians with equal rights, not only because it would create a precedent for Syrian refugees but also because up to 470 000 new, largely Sunni, citizens would call into question the delicate power-sharing arrangement existing since the end of the civil war. Trump offering Lebanon $6 billion dollars for signing into his ‘Deal of the Century’ has received condemnation across the political board, from Maronite Christians to Shiite groups like Amal and Hezbollah: No major political group will accept naturalization of Palestinian refugees.

maxresdefaultThe Hashemite kingdom of Jordan’s extended leadership fears it would not long exist (or at least keep its status and privileges) if all Palestinian refugees would be given equal rights – which, of course, would have to mean a larger process of democratic reform. Few billions of dollars from the USA would be a little comfort then. The old Israeli claim, repeated daily in social media, that “Jordan is Palestine”, is too well known – even when the same anti-Palestinian Israeli politicians, who repeat it like a religious mantra, have been one of the pillars on which the clay-feet Hashemite rule has rested for the last fifty years.

imagesThe memory of the conflict of 1970, when king Hussein II humiliatingly turned to ‘Western’ and Israeli support against Palestinian resistance groups, lies heavy over the authoritarian kingdom, and its elite has heard often enough the joke that US State Department officials from generation to generation keep telling: That the United States will hand West Bank to Israel and Jordan to Palestinians. When the regimes on which you depend for your political survival demand that you accept refugees, while joking what will happen to you if you do so, what is the Jordanian autocracy to think?

burj2For the Palestinian refugee problem there is only one solution – returning the exiled Palestinians back home to their own, native land. There is no alternative to right of return. No one can claim it would be a painless process, but the longer it is delayed, the larger regional problem it becomes. For the sake of justice, the Jewish populations that have been forced, or have emigrated more or less willingly, since 1948, should of course be offered similar right. But Israel has not been keen to pursue the Jewish right of return when it would take this form.

DOZENS INJURED IN ISRAELI OCCUPATION ATTACK TO MAKE WAY FOR ILLEGAL SETTLERS

ER3iI1CXsAAmb2_On Friday February 28th Israel’s occupation forces injured up to 134 Palestinians in an effort to gain illegal Israeli settlers’ control of a strategic mountain and its springs.

After public calls by illegal Israeli settlers to establish an illegal colony outpost on the Jabal al-‘Arma mountain, near the village of Beita south of the city of Nablus, hundreds of villagers from Beita and the neighbouring areas gathered on the mountain late on Thursday and stayed there over the night.

ER3iJCxXYAIuVtqOn Friday Israeli occupation forces attacked the demonstrators to make way for the illegal settlers, injuring up to 134 people. The occupation troops removed a flagpole and a large flag of Palestine raised there,  and forced the demonstrators to leave the mountain.

A 16-year-old child was shot in the back with a live bullet, one person was wounded in the head by a tear-gas grenade and another in thigh, while two people were shot in head with rubber-coated steel bullets.

Altogether at least 53 people were shot with rubber-coated steel bullets and at least 76 others suffered from ill effects f1d90a9467a1f04397e08b2f9724c32789708b1427b13801c1e412a01d7bec12of inhaling tear-gas. Among those wounded by the rubber-coated steel bullets was a one photojournalist. 

One person suffered fractures and bruises when he fell while trying to avoid Israeli occupation forces’ fire. There is also a report about a person being beaten by Israeli occupation troops and suffering similar injuries, but these might refer to the same person.

Israeli occupation forces declared the mountain ‘a closed military zone’ afterwards for 24 hours so that Palestinians could not defend it from the illegal settlers, who have tried to take over the mountain and its springs before.

NETANYAHU CELEBRATES, GIVES HIS APPROVAL TO IBRAHIMI MOSQUE MASSACRE ON ITS ANNIVERSARY

Israel’s prime minister Benyamin Netanyahu made an extremely provocative (and deliberate) visit to the Ibrahimi mosque in occupied West Bank’s Hebron today Tuesday February 25th.

THE IBRAHIMI MOSQUE MASSACRE

26 years ago to the day, illegal American settler Baruch Goldstein(1956-1993), a follower of his fellow
ERlBu3xU0AEnI0GAmerican extremist Meir Kahane(1932-1990), killed 29 and wounded 150 Palestinians in the Ibrahimi mosque.

Israel’s occupation forces killed 21 other Palestinians, who protested the massacre, before the day had ended.

Goldstein himself was killed by his surviving victims when he run out of ammunition. He was buried in the illegal colony oF Kiryat Arba in Hebron, his sumptuous grave becoming a shrine for the illegal Israeli settlers.

Very different treatment from Israel’s regime than his remains would have reserved if he would have been a Palestinian, destined to be hidden in one Israel’s “Cemeteries of Numbers”.

NETANYAHU GIVES HIS OWN PERSONAL SEAL OF APPROVAL

ERnsfSPXkAE_h15Today Israel’s prime minister Benyamin Netanyahu visited the Ibrahimi mosque with his wife and illegal Israeli settler leaders, giving his personal seal of approval on the massacre on its anniversary.

It was a message on which kind of government and policies illegal Israeli settlers can expect, if he wins the Knesset elections in March, third within the year.

It was also a message what illegal Israeli settlers can do when he is in power: To follow ERnscmAWoAAMbJdthe ‘example’ of Goldstein.

Likud, Netanyahu told with his visit, is the party of Baruch Goldstein.

SHUHADA STREET

Israeli state gave its seal of approval immediately after the massacre, collectively punishing Palestinians in Hebron for being the victims by closing the main commercial street of the Old City, the Shuhada Street.

It remains closed to this day, a wound in the heart of the city.

This reward did little good for the then Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin(1929-1995). After a public campaign against him by illegal Israeli settlers and Benyamin Netanyahu, he himself in 1995 became a victim of the same movement he had fed only a year earlier.

MINOR DIES AFTER CLASHES BETWEEN PALESTINIAN SECURITY FORCES AND ‘GUNMEN’

ERIUc51X0AAxhXc17-year-old boy died on Wednesday February 19th, a day after he was shot in chest during clashes between Palestinian Authority security forces and ‘gunmen’ in the town of Qabatiya in the Jenin district of the occupied West Bank.

Security forces on Tuesday February 18th had moved to disperse a reception for political prisoner Ali Tayseer Ali Zakarneh, who was being released by Israeli occupation after 20 months imprisonment.

It has been claimed that former political prisoners had been shooting in the air and the security forces had moved to stop this, but the Hamas movement has taken advantage of the events, and claimed that the security forces’ action reflected their continuing security co-operation with the Israeli occupation.

The attempt to disperse the crowd led to clashes, and at some point to exchange of gunfire with ‘gunmen’ that the sources don’t directly identify, but which we hazard to guess could be al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade members based on the location and later ERIpaKFWoAAZsvfappearance of armed men in the boy’s funeral.

At least four people were wounded. The number of injured security forces’ members in sources differ from one – said to have been injured after being hit in his neck with a stick – to 15. Most suffered injuries from shrapnel, but one person – who in some sources is identified as Muntasser Zakarneh but also given different last names in others – was shot in foot, beyond the boy who was fatally shot.

ERHkvK9X0AAy4XKThis was 17-year-old Salah al-Din Muhammad Zakarneh, who was shot in chest, suffering critical injuries, and died of his wounds on the next day in hospital.

His family has publicly blamed security forces and Akram Rajoub, the governor of Jenin, for his death, which led to protests on Wednesday, including blocking of roads.

Based on the careful reaction of the authorities – president Abbas called the boy’s father, an official investigation committee was set up on the day of his death by the prime minister – they seem to agree, although warn people against believing and spreading ‘rumours’.

ERJjy1eX0AAw3SWWhen Salah al-Din Zakarneh was buried, there were present armed, masked men who escorted and carried his body part of the way. This time the security forces stayed away.

ISRAELI OCCUPATION KILLS A YOUNG MAN NEAR THE AL-AQSA MOSQUE COMPOUND

ERXr3auX0AAZV0FIsrael’s occupation forces shot and killed a young man near one of the gates of the the al-Aqsa mosque compound in occupied East Jerusalem late on the morning of Saturday February 22nd.

The victim has been identified as 33-year-old Maher Yusef Zaatara from the al-Salaa neighbourhood of Jabal al-Mukaber in the occupied East Jerusalem. He leaves behind three children aged 3, 4 and 6.

Palestinian eye-witnesses have denied the standard Israeli occupation forces’ claim that he would have ‘tried to stab’ Israel’s occupation forces’ members.

ERXs7SAWoAAYUQhIsraeli occupation claimed that Zaatara would have approached Israeli occupation forces’ members “rapidly” and “raised a knife to stab”. According to contradictory eye-witness claims, he was jogging beside a wall when shot or walking, his hands up, towards the occupation troops after having been commanded by them to do so.

Videos capture only the immediate aftermath of his shooting, with Israeli occupation police officer closest to him with a hand-gun in his hands, and Israeli occupation paramilitary border guards approaching from another direction.

ERYIazZWsAAtVlRNo effort to check on the Maher Zaatara and give him first aid is shown in the videos and photographs that show him slumped on the ground beside a wall after he was shot.

Later photographs show his body being removed from the scene of the incident. Israeli occupation has so far published no photographs of the alleged knife.

ERYH8FjX0AMOWQVMaher Zaatara’s home in Jabal al-Mukaber was raided by Israeli occupation forces after he was killed. At least one person was seen as being kidnapped by Israel occupation troops.

A female illegal Israeli settler is said to have been slightly wounded from the shrapnel of bullets that Israeli occupation troops shot at Zaatara.

RAS KARKAR VICTIM OWNED SECURITY CAMERA THAT CAPTURED 2014 THE NAKBA DAY KILLINGS

On yesterday Monday February 17th Israeli occupation announced that it had found the body of Fakhr Mahmoud Abu Zayed Qart, who it accused of committing a shooting in which an Israeli occupation forces’ soldier was injured on Thursday February 6th.

Nadiom Nawara and Mohamed Abu Daher

Today it was revealed that it was Fakhr Qart’s security camera – outside his store in the town of Beitunia – which captured the 2014 Nakba Day shootings of teenagers Nadim Nawara(17) and Mohammed Abu Daher(17) by Israel’s occupation forces.

The Israeli occupation Border Guard member Ben Deri who shot Nawara was later convicted to nine months in prison for shooting him. He had used live bullets without an official order.

The video camera footage played a role in bringing enough publicity for Deri to be charged.

There were no charges for the killing of Abu Daher.

QUESTIONS

Fakhr Abu Zayed Qart’s body would have laid all the time just one kilometer away from the site of the shooting near the Ramallah district village of Ras Karkar, in an area which offers little cover. According to one report, he would have been shot ten times, but is said to have made his way EQ_ygN6X0AUpjTRon his own to the location where his body was found.

His sons Haytham(19) and Muhammad(16) were kidnapped in an Israeli occupation raid on his home five days before his body was found, so at some point Israeli occupation would have become aware of his identity.

EQ_o74EXYAELoIj
Haytham & Muhammad Aby Zayed Qart

 

Qart’s car was also taken away by Israeli occupation, which claimed originally that the occupation soldier was shot from a speeding car. Which does not fit the claim of Fakhr Abu Zayed Qart being apparently on foot (assuming that he, dead or dying, would not have been abandoned by a theoretical accomplice).

Faklr Qart, who was aged 51, 52 or 53 according to different sources makes perhaps a somewhat unlikely resistance guerilla.

ISRAEL CLAIMS TO HAVE FOUND THE BODY OF A MAN WHO WOUNDED OCCUPATION SOLDIER

Israeli occupation forces claimed on Monday February 17th that it found the body of a man who would have wounded Israel’s occupation forces’ soldier eleven days earlier.

Israeli occupation soldier was shot and wounded near the village of Ras Karkar and the illegal Israeli colony of Dolev on Thursday February 6th. The occupation soldier was air-EQHZHzEXsAYOcV7lifted by a military helicopter to a hospital in the ethnically cleansed Palestine 1948.

Early Israeli occupation claim was that the occupation soldier would have been shot at from a passing car.

Now Israeli occupation says that body of a man would have been found just one kilometer away from the site of the shooting. US-made M-16 assault rifle and a hand-gun would EQ_Y3q9WsAABoYFhave supposedly been near his body.

The man is said to have been dead at least for several days and Israeli occupation claims now that he was wounded in the incident and made his way to the location in which he was found, perishing there of his injuries.

The dead man has been identified as 51-year-old Fakhr Mahmoud Abu Zayed Qart from the town of Beitunia.

Israeli occupation used a bulldozer to move the body.

EQN732yVUAAqY-qOn Friday February 7th, a day after the shooting, Israeli occupation closed entrance to the village of Ras Karkar as an collective punishment, which is forbidden by the laws of war.
