On Friday dawn, medical sources at the Al-Ahli Hospital in the southern West Bank city of Hebron confirmed the death of a young man whom Israeli soldiers shot and seriously injured Thursday.

The sources said the colonizers shot Mohammad Ismael Jawabra, 22, in the Al-Arroub refugee camp north of Hebron.

They added that Mohammad suffered a serious headshot wound, causing a skull fracture, serious brain damage and hemorrhaging.

The medics rushed him to the Al-Ahli hospital before he was rushed to surgery and remained in a critical condition until he succumbed to his serious wounds.

The soldiers shot Jawabra while trying to help his neighbors in the refugee camp after the soldiers invaded it, leading to protests, and fired a barrage of live rounds at several homes.

The Palestinian Health Ministry said Jawabra’s death brings the number of Palestinians killed by Israeli soldiers and paramilitary colonizers to 65, including thirteen children, four elders, and a detainee who died from medical neglect.

On Thursday dawn, the Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed the death of Mohammad Nabil Fawzi Abu Sabah, 29, who was shot and seriously injured by Israeli soldiers in Jenin, in the northern West Bank, two weeks ago.

On Wednesday, Israeli soldiers killed eleven Palestinians, injured more than 102, six seriously, and caused more than  250 Palestinians to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation and other minor wounds.

The slain Palestinians are Adnan Sabe’ Ba’ara, 72, Anan Shawkat Ennab, 66, Jasser Jamil Qaneer, 23, Mohammad Farid Sha’ban, 16, Abdul-Hadi Abdul-Aziz Ashqar, 61, Walid Riyad Dakheel, 23, Mohammad Omar Al-Juneidi, 23, Husam Bassam Isleem, 24, Mos’ab Monir Oweiss, 26, Tamer Nimir Minawi, 33, and Mohammad Khaled Anbousi, 25

On Tuesday, Palestinian sources reported that a Palestinian, Mohammad Sami Abu Al-Omarein, 24, who Israeli soldiers shot and seriously injured in 2018 east of Jabalia in northern Gaza, died from his wounds.

NOTE: The entire West Bank has been under Israeli occupation since 1967; all its official entrances and exits are controlled by Israeli soldiers, making its Palestinian inhabitants virtual prisoners. Many are families that were ethnically cleansed from Israel during Israel’s founding war (see this and this and this). Israeli forces often invade them; one example is here.

Israel was established in 1947 through a war of ethnic cleansing of the indigenous population, both Muslims and Christians, and it continues to steal other people’s land for illegal colonies known as ‘settlements.’ While Palestinians most often use nonviolent resistance, a small number use armed resistance against the invaders.

Thanks to the pro-Israel lobby in the US, Congress disburses over $20 million per day of Americans’ tax money directly to and/or on behalf of Israel.
