Israel kills Palestinian civilians on a daily basis

Israeli forces have killed 52 Palestinians in August, including twelve children and fifteen who were assassinated in targeted killing operations.

The Palestine Liberation Organization’s (PLO) department of national relationships also revealed on a Wednesday report that five Palestinians died at military checkpoints, three due to the delay in arriving at hospitals and two were shot dead at the checkpoints.

102 Palestinians were injured during Israeli incursion into Palestinian cities, villages and refugee camps, the report stated. 220 were abducted either from their homes or at checkpoints. Nine Palestinian homes were demolished and nineteen were damaged.

The PLO reported that the Israeli forces deliberately assassinated children, such as ten-year-olds Sara and Yayha Abu Ghazal, and twelve year-old Mahmoud Abu Ghazal. The Israeli forces targeted the children with missiles while they played in fields near Beit Hanoun, in the northern Gaza Strip.

The Israeli forces also killed a mentally disabled man; 24-year-old Muhammad Abu Sha’ar, in Khan Younis, southern Gaza.

The report related the increasing suffering of Palestinians in the West Bank that are forced to travel through Israeli checkpoints. Young men were ordered to undress in public at ‘Atara checkpoint, north of Ramallah, in the central West Bank.

Israeli settlers continue to vandalize and destroy Palestinian land and property with the protection of the Israeli forces, particularly in Hebron, in the southern West Bank, the report noted.

(in case anyone wonders, this is a PLO report, whose main faction is Fatah – the big (and only) US and Israeli “ally” among the Palestinians – VS)
