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 a Palestinian child and wounded 4 civilians in excessive use of force in the West Bank: on 14 October 2021, IOF killed 16-year-old Amjad Usama Jalal Abu-Sultan from southeastern Bethlehem and detained his body. IOF also arrested another child that accompanied Abu-Sultan; it was alleged that the children were throwing Molotov cocktails at settlers’ vehicles west of Bethlehem. No eyewitnesses were available to refute or confirm the occupation’s narrative. However, given the nature of the crime site near a military checkpoint, the situation could have been handled using less force in accordance with proportionality and necessity shooting standards. PCHR also documented 2 Palestinians sustaining wounds in IOF assault on Kafr Qaddum weekly protest, and 2 others during a raid in occupied East Jerusalem.



In the Gaza Strip, 1 IOF shooting at fishing boats was documented in the Gaza Sea, and another on agricultural lands in eastern Gaza.



IOF incursions and arrests of Palestinian civilians: IOF carried out 104 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, 100 Palestinians were arrested, including 26 children and 3 journalists (1 female). IOF also confiscated a vehicle and sums of money during raids to civilian homes in the West Bank.

In the Gaza Strip, IOF arrested 2 Palestinians, including 1 child, while attempting to cross border area in eastern Rafah.
