27 Palestinians killed, 1400 injured in the past two weeks

PNN/ Ramallah/

The death toll of Palestinians killed by the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) since the outbreak of the uprising on Monday night hit 27, and left over 1,400 wounded by rubber-coated metal bullets and live ammunition. 

Three Palestinian citizens, including the child Hasan al-Manasra, were cold-bloodedly murdered by the Israeli occupation soldiers in three separate attacks in Occupied Jerusalem on Monday, bringing the number of Palestinians murdered since the outbreak of the Jerusalem Intifada to 27, the Palestinian Information Center said.

14-year-old al-Manasra was fatally shot by the occupation patrols, who left him bleeding on the ground with an unparalleled nonchalance.

Observers said such scenes, captured on and documented by live video shots, are barefaced proofs of Israelis’ inherently sadistic character and terrorist impulses.

18-year-old Mustafa Aadel al-Khatib breathed his last after he was hit by more than 10 bullet shots by the Israeli occupation officers in southern Occupied Jerusalem as soon as he got out of his car for inspection.

16 Palestinians were killed in the occupied West Bank and 11 in blockaded Gaza so far.

Health Minister Jawad Awad said 1/3 of those killed since the start of October are children. Eight children were killed by the Israeli occupation army and another baby was killed in the womb of his expectant mother, herself slain in a strike that also took away the life of her two-year-old girl Rahaf Yahya Hassan.

The minister further spoke out against Israel’s preplanned terrorism against Palestinian children and the deliberate targeting of their upper body parts.

He added that hundreds of other civilians have been held in hospitals to be urgently treated for their critical wounds.

According to official data by the Health Ministry, 25 Palestinians were injured Monday by the Israeli occupation army in the West Bank provinces of al-Khalil, Ramallah, Nablus, and Tulkarem, 21 among whom shot with live ammunition.

A nine-year-old child fell down and was injured as he had been chased down by the heavily-armed occupation soldiers.

236 have, meanwhile, been left wounded in blockaded Gaza in a week’s time while the number has hit 1,400 in both the West Bank and Gaza.
