Thursday-Friday: Israeli forces kill 5 Palestinians

Two articles describe how Israeli troops have killed 5 more Palestinians, one a youth riding his bicycle, another executed although he was unconscious and posed no threat. 12 others were shot; some are in serious condition. Israel has been responsible for the deaths of 89 Palestinians since the beginning of this year, including 17 children and one woman.

Israel’s “shoot first” policy leads to 2 more Palestinian deaths

Mohammad Ali, age 16, was fatally shot as he ran away from Israeli soldiers; Aref Lahlouh, age 20, was fatally shot after he allegedly tried to stab an Israeli soldier – the soldier was uninjured, but Lahlouh was shot and denied medical attention. These are the 18th and 19th Palestinian deaths at the hands of Israel in the first 25 days of 2023.
