    The Israeli army killed, Saturday, four Palestinians, including a pregnant mother and her baby girl, in a series of bombings and air strikes targeting the Gaza Strip, wounding more than 30 civilians.

    Dr. Ashraf al-Qedra, the spokesperson of the Health Ministry in Gaza, has reported that the soldiers killed a pregnant Palestinian mother, identified as Falasteen Saleh Abu Arar , 37, and her baby girl, Saba Mahmoud Abu Arar , 14 months, after firing a missile at their home in Gaza city.


    The mother, who was also six months pregnant, suffered very serious wounds to the head and other parts of her body, and died from her wounds.

    Dr. al-Qedra added that the soldiers also moderately injured another daughter of the slain pregnant mother.

    Furthermore, the soldiers killed another Palestinian, identified as Khaled Mohammad Abu Qleiq , 25, after the army fired several missiles into areas in Beit Lahia, in northern Gaza.


    The soldiers also fired many missiles at homes in the neighborhoods of the Sheja’eyya, Tuffah and Zeitoun, in Gaza city, causing many injuries and serious property damage.

    At least thirty Palestinians have been injured in the ongoing Israeli bombardments, that caused damage to several homes in the Gaza Strip, including two residential, west of Gaza city.

    Among the targeting buildings was “Abdullah al-Hourani Center for Studies and Documentation” which is run by Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), in Gaza city.

    The Center is located in a residential building which was targeted by several Israeli missiles, Saturday.

    The Israeli bombardment also caused damage to several shops and stores, in addition to media agencies.

    Armed resistance factions in Gaza said they retaliated to the Israeli escalation by firing shells into several Israeli areas, including Ofakim, Asqalan (Ashkelon), Be’er as-Sabe’ (Beersheba) and Keryat Gat.

    Earlier Saturday, the soldiers killed one Palestinian, identified as Emad Mohammad Nosseir, 22, from Beit Hanoun, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.

    Besides killing the two four Palestinians, the soldiers also injured 82 Palestinians, including 34 children, two journalists and three medics.

    Palestinian medical sources have reported that a man died, on Monday morning, from complications resulting from wounds he suffered three weeks earlier, after Israeli soldiers shot him in southern Gaza.

    The sources said the man, Ghanem Ibrahim Sharab , 44, from Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, was shot by the soldiers three weeks ago.

    Sharab died from serious complications resulting from his injury, especially after the doctors had to amputate his left foot, on October 29th.

    Gaza Strip hospitals have been complaining from serious deficiency in urgent medical supplies and equipment in the besieged and improvised coastal region.

    The Health Ministry in Gaza issued numerous statements and appeals regarding the seriously deteriorating conditions in the hospitals, due to the thousands of injuries, including hundreds who suffered very serious wounds, since the Great Return March processions started on March 30th, and the ongoing Israeli siege on the coastal region.

  • » Israeli Military Claims to Open Investigation into Killing of Palestinian Medic
    IMEMC News - October 31, 2018 12:34 AM
    http://imemc.org/article/israeli-military-claims-to-open-investigation-into-killing-of-palestinian-med

    The Israeli military announced Tuesday that they have opened an investigation into the Israeli sharpshooters who targeted and killed 21-year old Palestinian medic Razan Ashraf al-Najjar during a massacre of civilians protesting at the Gaza-Israel border in May.

    This is a re-opening of the initial military probe, which claimed that she had not been shot intentionally. The Military Advocate General, Brig. Gen. Sharon Afek, said that the Israeli Military police should re-open the investigation. The initial investigation involved only interviews with the soldiers who were on duty at the border the day she was killed – no interviews with Palestinian eyewitnesses, no ballistics or physical investigation, no autopsy.

    Palestinian officials have called for independent, outside investigations into not only the killing of Razan, but all of the over 200 deaths by Israeli gunfire and the more than 20,000 injuries caused by Israeli forces firing into crowds of demonstrators at the border each Friday since March 30th.

    Razan Ashraf Najjar, 22, was a female volunteer medic who was shot and killed by Israeli forces while helping treat wounded protesters at a ‘Great Return March’ protest on Friday June 1st, 2018. On the same day, Israeli forces injured 100 Palestinians, including 40 who were shot with live fire.

    The Palestinian Health Ministry said the soldiers resorted to the excessive use of force against Palestinian protesters, participating in the Great Return March, and marching for breaking the ongoing deadly Israeli siege on the Gaza Strip.

    Dr. Ashraf al-Qedra, the spokesperson of the Health Ministry in Gaza, stated that the Razan was killed by live Israeli army fire after the soldiers targeted five medics providing treatment to wounded Palestinians in the “Return Camp,” east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip. Prior to her injury, Razan, managed to render aid to many wounded Palestinians, including an elderly man who suffered the effects of teargas inhalation.

    Razan, who was wearing a clearly-marked medic vest, was at least 100 meters away from the eastern border fence when she was shot while providing aid to wounded Palestinians and attempting to evacuate them to the field clinic.

    Razan was killed when an Israeli sniper shot her in the back, and the bullet went through her heart.

    Dr. Rasha Abdul-Rahman Qdeih said she was with Razan when they were trying to help wounded Palestinians, but five army jeeps came close to the fence, before two soldiers left one of the vehicles and pointed their sniper scopes at them.

    “I shouted at my colleagues to take cover and remain alert,” she said, “The soldiers fired several rounds, and some minutes later, we managed to evacuate the wounded, before the soldiers started firing gas bombs.” (...)

    • Israël : l’enquête sur la mort de la secouriste Razan al-Najjar va se poursuivre
      Par RFI Publié le 30-10-2018
      De notre correspondant à Jérusalem, Guilhem Delteil
      http://www.rfi.fr/moyen-orient/20181030-gaza-secouriste-razan-armee-justice

      La mort de Razan al-Najjar avait entraîné une vague de condamnations et l’émissaire des Nations unies pour le processus de paix au Proche-Orient avait enjoint Israël à « calibrer son usage de la force ». La secouriste palestinienne a été tuée le 1er juin dernier par un tir israélien alors qu’elle intervenait professionnellement dans les rassemblements organisés le long de la barrière de séparation. Un décès sur lequel l’avocat général de l’armée demande désormais une enquête approfondie.
      (...)
      Rapidement après les faits, l’armée israélienne avait ouvert une enquête. Ses conclusions l’ont conduit à considérer que la jeune secouriste n’avait pas été victime d’un tir intentionnel et qu’un « nombre limité de balles avait été tiré lors de l’incident ».

      Elle dénonce de manière continue ces rassemblements comme des « émeutes violentes » et souligne que ce jour-là, un véhicule militaire avait essuyé des tirs palestiniens. Mais l’avocat général, principal avocat de l’armée, souhaite un examen plus en profondeur des circonstances et a demandé à la police militaire de poursuivre l’enquête.

  • Palestinian killed, dozens injured during Gaza’s 14th naval march

    http://www.maannews.com/Content.aspx?ID=781636

    GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — A 27-year-old Palestinian was shot and killed by Israeli forces, while dozens of others suffered from tear-gas inhalation, on Monday, during the 14th naval march at the northern borders of the besieged Gaza Strip.

    A Ma’an reporter confirmed that Muhammad Abed Abu Ubada , 27, was killed by Israeli forces during the 14th naval march, which set off from the Gaza seaport, in protest against the nearly 12-year Israeli siege.

    According to local reports, Abu Ubada was transferred to the al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza City, where he was declared dead.

    During the naval march, Palestinian protesters ignited tires to blur the vision of Israeli snipers deployed at the northern Gaza border, while Israeli forces repeatedly fired live bullets, rubber-coated steel bullets, and tear-gas bombs towards the protesters.

    As a result, dozens of protesters suffered from tear-gas inhalation.

    Many attempts have been made throughout the years to draw the public’s attention to and break the on-going siege of the Gaza Strip whether via ships attempting to sail into Gaza or ships attempting to sail from Gaza.
