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 arrests against civilians. The Israeli occupation released new guidelines for its soldiers “loosening restrictions” on shooting against Palestinians who throw stones on IOF, according to Kan 11, despite the fact that IOF actual shooting policy reflects unjustifiably loose shooting standards against Palestinians. As per the new guidelines, the occupation allows its soldiers to shoot at Palestinians who throw rocks and Molotov cocktails even after they -Palestinians- stop their action and leave the area.

Meanwhile, the Gaza Strip is in its 15th year under closure, as Israel exercise the worst known collective punishment in human history, exacerbating the humanitarian hardships across the territory.

IOF shooting and violation of right to life and bodily integrity:

During the reporting period, IOF killed 2 Palestinians following the new loose shooting standards guidelines issued for Israeli soldiers. On 21 December 2021, IOF killed Abdulazizi Hikmat Mousa (22) after opening fire on him while inside his vehicle; killing him and setting his car on fire. Mousa’s body was burnt black. IOF alleged he attempted a runover attack near a checkpoint at the entrance of Yabad, southwestern Jenin.

On 22 December 2021, Mohammed Issa Abbas (26) died a short while after IOF shot him in the back, after attacking the vehicle he was in, which was parked at Amari refugee camp’s roundabout in al-Bireh. IOF claimed that the vehicle was involved in a shooting on “Psagot“ settlement, which is hundreds of meters from the crime scene.

IOF attacks rendered 12 Palestinians wounded, including 4 children and a journalist, in the West Bank, including occupied East Jerusalem: 4 wounded, including 2 children, in IOF attacks on 2 peaceful protests in Kafr Qaddum; a photojournalist was wounded in Jerusalem; a child in Hebron, a Palestinian male in Bethlehem, and another near the Annexation Wall in Jenin. Two others, including 1 children, were wounded in IOF attack on Ramallah.

In the Gaza Strip, IOF opened fire 7 times on agricultural lands in eastern Gaza Strip.

IOF incursions and arrests of Palestinian civilians: IOF carried out 128 incursions into the West Bank, including occupied East Jerusalem. Those incursions included raids of civilian houses and shootings, enticing fear civilians, and attacking many of them. During this week’s incursions, 72 Palestinians were arrested, including 13 children and a woman.

In the Gaza Strip, IOF arrested 2 Palestinians attempting to cross the border area in northern Gaza. IOF also conducted a limited incursion into eastern Khan Younis.
