On Friday, Israeli soldiers attacked a nonviolent procession near the Tayasir military roadblock east of Tubas in the northeastern West Bank.
The Palestinian Detainees’ Committee, the Palestinian Prisoners’ Society, the Tubas governorate, and the Wall & Colonization Resistance Commission organized the procession to protest the seriously escalating Israeli violations.
The Palestinians held noon prayers near residential structures Israel wants to demolish in the Al-Aqaba village and marched towards the roadblock while chanting against the Israeli violations and in solidarity with the Palestinian detainees.
Younis Al-‘Aasi, the governor of Tubas and the Northern Plans, said Israel continues to target the Palestinians, their homes, lands, and their holy sites and is escalating its crimes against the detainees in addition to the ongoing demolition of homes and structures, especially since just five days ago the army issues orders for the demolition of five structures in the Al-Aqaba village, east of Tubas.
Kamal Bani Odah, the head of the Tubas office of the Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS), said Israel is imposing serious restrictions on the political prisoners and stripping them from basic rights guaranteed by International Law and the Fourth Geneva Convention.
Also Friday, the soldiers shot two Palestinians with rubber-coated steel bullets and caused many to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation during the weekly procession in Kufur Qaddoum, east of the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia.
Furthermore, the soldiers injured several Palestinians, one seriously, in Hebron in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.
On Thursday dawn, the Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed the death of Mohammad Nabil Fawzi Abu Sabah, 29, who was shot and seriously injured by Israeli soldiers in Jenin, in the northern West Bank, two weeks ago.
On Friday dawn, medical sources at the Al-Ahli Hospital in the southern West Bank city of Hebron confirmed the death of Mohammad Ismael Jawabra, 22, whom Israeli soldiers shot and seriously injured Thursday.
On Tuesday, Palestinian sources reported that a Palestinian, Mohammad Sami Abu Al-Omarein, 24, who Israeli soldiers shot and seriously injured in 2018 east of Jabalia in northern Gaza, died from his wounds.
