On Friday evening, illegal Israeli colonizers inured a child, only four years of age, south of Hebron, in the occupied West Bank’s southern part.

Rateb Jabour, the coordinator of the National and Popular Committee against the Annexation Wall and Colonies in southern Hebron, said the colonizers attacked several Palestinians from the local Al-Haddar family in Susiya village.

Jabour added that the colonizers attacked and maced a child, Osaid Hamed Al-Haddar, 4, with pepper spray in the face before Palestinian medics rushed him to a clinic for treatment, suffering an injury to his face and suffocation due to pepper spray.

In related news, a young man was injured in Tana village, east of Beit Furik, east of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, after paramilitary colonizers attacked it.

Media sources said Israeli soldiers shot the young man with a rubber-coated steel bullet when the locals intercepted the colonizers’ attack.

On Friday morning, illegal paramilitary Israeli colonizers fenced Palestinians grazing lands, destroyed agricultural tools, and uprooted olive saplings in the Northern Plains and Nablus in the occupied West Bank.

All of Israel’s colonies in the occupied West Bank, including those in and around occupied East Jerusalem, are illegal under International Law, the Fourth Geneva Convention, in addition to various United Nations and Security Council resolutions. They also constitute war crimes under International Law.

Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention states: “The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.” It also prohibits the “individual or mass forcible transfers, as well as deportations of protected persons from occupied territory.”
