Israel’s occupation forces soldier was found stabbed to death on the occupied West Bank on Thursday August 8th.
The body of corporal Dvir Sorek(19) was found by the illegal Gush Etzion colony bloc at 02:30 am Palestine time after his family in the illegal colony of Ofra had reported him missing.
Sorek, although described as being in active duty, was living in the illegal colony of Ofra where he was a student in a religious school and had left to divided Jerusalem on Wednesday and had been expected back the same day.
According to Israeli occupation Sorek would have been kidnapped alive from somewhere else than where his body was found, transported in a car and killed before his body would have been left on the site.
Israeli occupation, which accuses Palestinians of the corporal’s killing, also speculated that kidnapping might have been at first the goal, not killing. A car used in the incident has been possibly found.
The town of Beit Fajjar, closest Palestinian population centre to where the body was located, was raided by Israeli occupation forces in the aftermath of the body’s finding.
Israel’s illegal settlers have been attacking Palestinians in the occupied West Bank using the death of corporal Sorek as an excuse. As we write this, @PalInfoAr is reporting that illegal settlers from the illegal colony of Kiryat Arba having attacked Palestinians and their vehicles in Hebron while the Hawara-Nablus -road has been closed by Israeli occupation forces while illegal settlers are attacking in the area.
Corporal Sorek’s grandfather had been killed in a resistance attack in 2000.
Various resistance factions have praised the killing of corporal Sorek.
On July 31st 2015 illegal Israeli settlers’ arson attack in the occupied West Bank village of Duma left the married couple of Riham(28) and Sa’ad Dawasheh(32) with fatal injuries which claimed their lives in the coming weeks while their younger, 1.5 y/o son Ali burned alive in his crib.
Their older son Ahmed, then 5, survived with severe burns, scars of which he will carry rest of his life along with the mental ones left by the loss of his parents and baby brother. He had been carried out of the family’s burning home by his father.
There has been no convictions in Israeli courts for this attack on July 31st 2015, for which three illegal settlers are suspects, or for the later arson attack on the home of the main eye-witness Yassir Dawasheh on May 11th 2018.

A young Palestinian political prisoner has died after having been kept in solitary confinement by Israeli occupation since the day he was detained. During his captivity he was allegedly being tortured during interrogations.
31-year-old Nassar Majed Taqatqa was found dead at the morning of Tuesday July 16th. He was being kepy in solitary confinement in Israeli occupation’s Ramla prison. Autopsy showed that the cause of death was ‘severe pneumonia’, which is being blamed on deliberate medical negligence on behalf of Israeli occupation prison authorities.
Taqatqa, from Beit Fajjar in the Bethlehem district of the occupied West Bank, had been kidnapped by Israel’s occupation forces from his home on June 19th. Before his kidnapping and captivity he had no known medical issues.
He was beaten by occupation soldiers when he was kidnapped and is claimed to have been tortured in several occasions during his imprisonment, all of which he was kept in solitary confinement, shackled from hands and feet through interrogation and into his bed in his cell. Marks from this were observed during the autopsy.
Nassar Taqatqa was moved between different Israeli occupation interrogation centres until he was moved to the notorious Ramla prison clinic on July 14th.
It’s alleged that even there his pneumonia would have gone untreated. That a sick man died alone and was found dead by Israeli occupation prison staff at morning seem to indicate negligence in itself.
No reason or excuse for his kidnapping, imprisonment and torture has been put forth by the Israeli occupation. Taqatqa had not been previously detained by the occupation. Photographs from the mourning tent raised at Beit Fajjar show that at least his family is affiliated with president Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah movement.
According to Palestinian officials, Nassar Taqatqa is the 220th Palestinian political prisoner to die in Israeli occupation captivity since 1967. His death has led to protests in the Israeli occupied Palestinian territories.
Israel’s occupation forces killed an underage boy and wounded a young man in the occupied West Bank on Friday May 31st.
Abdullah Louai Gheith, aged 15 or 16, and Mu’men Abu Tbaish(21) were shot by Israeli occupation soldiers positioned to an occupation military checkpoint when they were allegedly trying to cross the illegal Wall into occupied East Jerusalem without a permit.
Gheith, said to be his parents’ only son, was shot in chest with the bullet damaging his heart. He was left to bleed by Israeli occupation for an undefined time before he was allowed to be taken away in an ambulance.
According to a local hospital in nearby Bethlehem he was “in a very critical condition” when he arrived there, but was soon pronounced dead. An earlier report claimed that he ‘died instantly’. His funeral took place in his home town of Hebron in the late afternoon.
Abu Tbaish, from Hadabat al-Fawwar near the city of Hebron, is said to have been critically wounded, but later reports say his condition in hospital in Beit Jala has stabilized.
According to phrasing of some news articles and direct mention by one, the victims were part of a larger group of people when they were shot.
The area where the incident took place, that of Wadi Abu al-Hummus near villages of al-Khas and al-Numan, is a place known for regular crossing by people who lack permits from Israeli occupation.
Israel has banned access to East Jerusalem without permit for Palestinian males aged 13-39 for the duration of Islamic holidays.
