Five more tragic deaths in Israel-Palestine. As Palestinian anger grows against Israeli forces that have killed 45 people so far this year, demolished 34 Palestinian homes, conducted over 1,500 raids on Palestinian spaces, arrested 638 Palestinians, destroyed olive trees, shot at fishermen, and continue to hold 4,700 political prisoners – today one Palestinian was killed after an alleged stabbing attempt (according to the Israeli military – this is unconfirmed), another died in prison of medical neglect, and a third was killed after taking 2 Israeli lives in a car ramming incident. The Palestinian death toll in 2023 stands at 45; 9 Israelis have also been killed (all by lone Palestinian attackers.)

Thursday morning, Israelis forces killed a young Palestinian man in a predawn raid on the Balata refugee camp. Hours later an Israeli settler committed a car-ramming attack against a Palestinian man near Ramallah, killing him.
A Palestinian couple follows Israeli soldier’s orders; one ends up in the morgue, the other in the hospital. Israeli military opened fire on their car near a checkpoint in Palestinian Territory, not Israel.
A young Palestinian husband and father is the victim of a car-ramming by an Israeli settler. It is not known whether this was an accident or a deliberate act, but it comes at a time when settler violence is rampant.
Palestinian Ahmed Erekat was shot, then he was left to die, and then mainstream media did its typical poor job reporting on the injustice of his death.
