A Palestinian soldier killed in a shooting attack at a border crossing: Israeli Defense Forces and Israel’s “Breaking the Wave” operation
An IDF soldier was killed and another was critically injured by a shooting attack at the checkpoint, the army said in a statement. A solider was declared dead after being taken to a hospital for further treatment. We express our heartfelt condolences to the family.”
A suspect arrived at the Shuafat crossing and fired at the security forces, as well as a shot was fired from a passing vehicle. The Border Guard is looking for the suspects.
A male in serious condition and another female in mild condition were treated at the scene, according to Israeli emergency services.
The area surrounding the Shuafat Refugee Camp in East Jerusalem is considered occupied by most of the international community.
The statement expressed regret for any harm to uninvolved civilians, especially those in a combat environment and in close proximity to armed terrorists.
The Ministry of Health in the West Bank says that a 14-year-old was shot and killed near the separation wall with Israel.
When asked for comment about Daoud’s death, the Israel Defense Forces said “during IDF routine operational activity, IDF soldiers spotted a suspect who hurled Molotov cocktails at them adjacent to the city of Qalqilya. The soldiers responded with live fire. A hit was identified. The incident is being reviewed.
Dozens of Palestinians throwing bombs and Molotov cocktails at the soldiers and shots were fired at them. There was live fire towards the suspects by the soldiers. The hits were identified.
According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, two Palestinians were killed in a military operation on Saturday.
The IDF said forces were in the Jenin refugee camp to arrest an “Islamic Jihad operative” who it claims was “involved in terrorist activities, planning and carrying out shooting attacks towards IDF soldiers in the area.”
There has been an increase in violence between the Palestinians and Israeli security forces in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.
Israel says it is targeting militant and their weapon cache in the occupied West Bank before they have a chance to carry out attacks on Israel. After a series of attacks on Israelis the IDF launched it’s “breaking the wave” operation. At least 20 Israelis and foreigners have been killed in attacks targeting civilians and soldiers in Israel and the West Bank so far this year.
“The mounting violence in the occupied West Bank is fueling a climate of fear, hatred and anger. It is crucial to reduce tensions immediately to open the space for crucial initiatives aimed at establishing a viable political horizon,” Wennesland said.
A Justice Department spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment about Gantz’s statement. It was not immediately clear when the investigation might have begun and what it would entail. The probe by the U.S. into Israeli actions could shake the strong alliance between the two countries.
Israel won’t cooperate with any external investigation according to the statement made by the Israeli Defense Minister.
Palestinian officials, Abu Akleh’s family and Al Jazeera accuse Israel of intentionally targeting and killing the 51-year-old journalist, who was wearing a helmet and a protective vest marked with the word “press” when she was shot last May in the occupied West Bank.
She was a well-known face in the Arab world after she had covered the West Bank for Al Jazeera for two decades. Her death reverberated across the region.
Abu Akleh’s family did not immediately respond to requests for comment late Monday, nor did Palestinian Foreign Ministry officials. A spokeswoman for outgoing Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid declined to comment, and former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is expected to return to lead the country in the coming weeks, also had no immediate comment.
Israeli troops shouldn’t investigate the deaths of a child killed in occupied West Bank and Gaza, as seen by Palestinian protests on Monday
American citizens abroad who die or are injured are often investigated by the FBI or other U.S. investigators.
However, such separate investigations are not the rule and it is rare, if not unprecedented, for them to occur in a U.S.-allied country like Israel that is recognized in Washington as having a credible and independent judicial system.
Critics have accused the military of doing a poor job of investigating wrongdoing by its troops and rarely holding them accountable. Israeli authorities decided not to launch a criminal investigation after conducting an investigation into the death.
The girl who died was hit by stray fire intended for armed men on a roof in the area from which the force was fired upon.
“Twenty minutes after the soldiers left the neighborhood, her father went to look for her … He found her lying on the floor with a face full of blood,” Zakarneh said.
The Israeli Defense Minister spoke about the death of a person who had not been involved in terrorism if that was the case.
Several hundred peopletook to the streets of Jenin on Monday to protestIsraeli aggression after a general strike was declared on Monday.
In a statement on Monday, Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh called on the Special Representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations for Children and Armed Conflict, Virginia Gamba, “to investigate the crimes of the occupation and put Israel on the blacklist.” Gamba is in the West Bank and Gaza.
Zakarneh’s death brings the total number of Palestinians killed in the occupied West Bank so far in 2022 to 166, a level not seen in more than a decade, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health. Israel says that the majority of the killed have been people who engage violently with soldiers. But human rights groups say bystanders have also been killed.
On Thursday, a 16-year-old boy died after he was shot by Israeli forces in Ramallah, according to a separate statement by the Palestinian Ministry of Health last week.
The 16-year-old was shot in the back. The first exit was from his chest and the second was from his abdomen.
Elan Ganeles, 37, killed in the crossing of the Dead Sea from Jerusalem to the Beit Ha’Arava during his visit to Israel
It’s important that the government of Israel know that America is steadfast in its commitment to their security. That commitment is backed up by nearly 75 years of U.S. support. America’s commitment has never wavered, and never will.
Elan Ganeles of West Hartford, Conn., was visiting Israel for a friend’s wedding when he was killed, according to the Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford. The 27-year-old was shot on a road frequented by international tourists that passes through the West Bank toward the Dead Sea. He is a recent graduate of Columbia University. On Wednesday, he’ll be buried in Israel.
The attack took place on Route 90, north of the Beit Ha’Arava Junction, the MDA said. The location is normally peaceful and on one of the main routes for Israelis to visit the Dead Sea.
Michael Landau, a friend of the man from the Hebrew program said he was going to America to celebrate his friend’s wedding. “He was on his way to see a friend when he got murdered.”
Steve Charter, manager of a Hebrew language program that went to Ganeles, told CNN that the man was a gentleman and would make a good boyfriend for your daughter. Charter said Ganeles attended the five-month course at Kibbutz Sde Eliyahu in 2015 before joining the Israeli army.
Landau said that while he was aware of the security situation in Israel, he wasn’t worried about it. “He lived here in the past so he understands the situation,” Landau said. He never expressed concern over the fact that something was happening.
The US State Department said it was extremely concerned about the events this weekend and the violence happening in Israel and the West Bank.
Ganeles’s death came after a mob of Israeli settlers went on a rampage Sunday in Huwara, south of Nablus in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, killing one Palestinian, beating others with metal bars, and stoning a Palestinian fire engine after burning several homes.
The shooting deaths of two Israeli brothers on Sunday in Huwara came just days after an Israeli military raid in Nablus left at least 11 Palestinians dead.
Israeli settlers attacked and killed in the West Bank, killing a Connecticut native, according to a senior Israeli official after the earthquakes in Turkey
State Department spokesman Ned Price on Monday reiterated the US’ condemnation of the killings of Israelis over the weekend and the violence by settlers against Palestinians.
An Israel Defense Forces official condemned Sunday’s attacks by Israeli settlers as acts of “revenge” and “terror,” and said the IDF was sending three additional battalions to the area to try to deescalate the situation.
The person shot to death by a suspected Palestinian in the West Bank was a Connecticut native, according to the Israeli foreign ministry. A wave of violence has claimed the lives of Israelis and Palestinians.
He was back in Turkey where he volunteered to help victims of the earthquakes that hit there, according to his brother. He said Aqtash was a blacksmith and was standing outside his shop when the rioters approached and he was killed.
