    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.

    On Friday, the soldiers killed two Palestinians during the Great Return March processions, and later killed two members of the al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas.

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

    Le ministère gazaoui de la Santé a averti ce week-end que la santé de centaines de patients de la bande assiégée était menacée en raison du blocus qu’Israël continue d’imposer à des fonds vitaux en provenance du Qatar.

    Ashraf al-Qedra, porte-parole du ministère, a déclaré que plusieurs hôpitaux risquaient d’arrêter leurs générateurs électriques en raison de la crise du carburant.

    « Nous parlons de centaines de patients, dont 800 patients souffrant d’insuffisance rénale et des dizaines d’enfants prématurés, de plus de 250 interventions chirurgicales par jour et de grossesses dangereuses, dont 150 césariennes », a précisé Qedra lors d’une conférence de presse ce dimanche.

  • » 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.” (...)

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 ».

      Les familles de trois garçons palestiniens assassinés dans une attaque aérienne israélienne dénoncent les affirmations d’Israël selon laquelle ils installaient un engin explosif.

      Vivant près de la clôture, les trois garçons – Khaled Abu Said, 13 ans, Abdulhamid Abu Daher, 13 ans, et Mohammed Assatri, 14 ans – s’étaient retrouvés lundi pour installer des filets pour attraper des oiseaux, selon leurs familles.

      Monira Assatri, la mère de Mohammed âgée de 47 ans, pleure son fils unique parmi ses cinq filles. Elle a déclaré que le jeune homme de 14 ans avait pris une douche, s’était habillé et était allé voir ses amis le soir de son assassinat.

      « Quelques heures plus tard, nous avons entendu un bombardement suivi de beaucoup de bruit dehors, de sirènes d’ambulances et de gens qui criaient », a-t-elle réussi à dire, continuant de pleurer. « Je me suis précipité dans la chambre de Mohammed et il n’était pas là. J’ai dit à ma fille qu’il était possible que son frère ne soit plus des nôtres… »

      Les habitants de la région ont commencé à se rassembler près de la maison de la famille de Mohammed et à demander de ses nouvelles. Son père s’est donc rendu à l’hôpital.

      « Mohammed et ses voisins avaient l’habitude de chasser de temps en temps dans les terres proches de notre maison. Comme vous pouvez le constater, nous vivons très près de la zone frontalière, nos fils y vont donc pour jouer », a déclaré Assatri à Al Jazeera.

      On Friday afternoon, as Israeli soldiers from the other side of the fence were firing tear gas, rubber-coated steel bullets and live ammunition, Yaser Abu al-Naja and a few friends took cover behind a waste container away from the front lines of a protest in the Gaza Strip.

      As Yaser briefly peeked out from behind the bin, an explosive bullet hit him in the head. His skull was shattered, resulting a bloody pulp in one side, eye-witnesses said.

      Yaser was 11 years old.

      His killing on Friday made him the 16th Palestinian child to be shot dead by Israeli forces since the launch on March 30 of the Great March of Return protests calling for the right of refugees and their descendants to return to the homes and lands from which they were violently expelled from in 1948.
