Summary

Israeli occupation forces (IOF) continued to commit crimes and multi-layered violations against Palestinian civilians and their properties, including raids into Palestinian cities that are characterized with excessive use of force, assault, abuse, and attacks on civilians, turning the West Bank into isolated blocks of land. Dozens of Israeli settlers attacked Palestinians in Hebron under Israeli military protection.

The Israeli settlement expansion works continued on Palestinian lands and properties. Meanwhile, the Gaza Strip enters its 15th year under closure, exacerbating the humanitarian hardships across the territory.

IOF shooting and violation of right to bodily integrity:

IOF killed 6 Palestinians, including a child, and wounded 17 others, including 3 children and a journalist in separate incidents across the West Bank, including occupied East Jerusalem.

In Nablus, IOF killed on 24 September 2021 Mohammed Ali Khabisa (28) from Beit, and wounded two others, including an elderly man, while attacking a peaceful anti-settlement protest in Beita, southeastern Nablus.

In Jerusalem, IOF killed on 26 September 2021, 3 Palestinians after raiding a country house in Bidu village in an extrajudicial execution. Eyewitness statements confirmed there were no clashes in the area, and that IOF killed those civilians in cold blood, and detained their dead bodies. Also on the same day, IOF killed Usama Yaser Sobeh (22) and 16-year-old Yusuf Sobeh; and wounded 6 others during clashes in Jenin after IOF besieged a house in Burqin. IOF detained Yusuf Sobeh’s body and claimed that the incident occurred during an armed clash while arresting activists. Both killings were conducted with the approval of the highest political level in Israel, allegedly while targeting activists who planned violent action.

PCHR documented 4 casualties in IOF attacks on a peaceful protest in Kafr Qaddum, 3 in Jenin and a journalist in al-Bireh, as well as a child in al-Aroub refugee camp in Hebron.

In the Gaza Strip, IOF opened fire 3 times at fishing boats in the Gaza Sea, and four times on agricultural lands in eastern Gaza.

IOF incursions and arrests of Palestinian civilians: IOF carried out 126 incursions into the West Bank, including occupied East Jerusalem. Those incursions included raids of civilian houses and shootings, enticing fear among civilians, and attacking many of them. During this week’s incursions, 73 Palestinians were arrested, including 5 children and two women.

In the Gaza Strip, IOF conducted two limited incursions in northern and central Gaza.
