The Israeli occupation forces continue to use extrajudicial killings, of political assassinations and the physical liquidation of Palestinians.
Last week, Israeli occupation forces killed three Palestinians in the occupied West Bank city of Nablus. Palestinians condemned the operation, describing it as “assassination” and “execution,” while Israelis said it was part of an operation to “combat terrorism.”
Eyewitnesses stressed that an Israeli force in a civilian vehicle opened heavy fire on a vehicle in the area. The Special Force withdrew after being confirmed that people inside the car have been killed.
Those killed are Ashraf Al-Mubaslat, Adham Mabruk and Mohamed Al-Dakheel, and a large protest took place in the different governorates of the occupied.
The Government called on the United Nations and international human rights organisations to “condemn the heinous crime and to bring the perpetrators to justice.”
All the Palestinian factions stressed that the crimes of occupation would not have escalated, if the international community did not remain quiet.
Continued establishment of new settlements In Nablus
At the same time five Palestinians, including 2 journalists, were wounded after the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) opened fire at the Palestinian-Organized weekly peaceful protest against the establishment of the “Evyatar” settlement outpost in Bita village east of Nablus, north of the West Bank.
It should be noted that IOF killed 9 Palestinians and injured tens, including journalists, since the beginning of the weekly peaceful protest organized against the establishment of “Evyatar” settlement outpost on the Palestinian lands of Bita village 10 months ago.
Amnesty International Accused Israel of Being an “Apartheid” State, Amnesty International called on the International Criminal Court to regard the crime of apartheid in the context of its current investigations in the occupied Palestinian territories. In the same context, Amnesty International Secretary-General Anjama Kalamar called for “holding Israel accountable for the crime of “apartheid” against Palestinians living in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories, as well as refugees displaced in other countries.”
The United Nations’ Comments on Israeli Crimes
The United Nations expressed mere concern at the recent developments in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including the killing of three Palestinians in the northern West Bank city of Nablus.
These crimes, like other war crimes committed by the Israeli occupying forces against the Palestinians are increasing dramatically, in light of the silence of the international community and the High Contracting Parties to the Fourth Geneva Convention, and the failure to hold the Israeli occupation accountable.
