Over 100 Palestinian youth shot by Israel live bullet for throwing stone within 3 days 

Is the third Intifada growing hot after decades of indignities and utter apartheid practices?

In just 24 hours, Palestinian Red Crescent: 77 Palestinians injured by live, rubber bullets

The Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS) says nearly 80 Palestinians have been injured from live rounds and rubber bullets in clashes with Israeli forces and illegal settlers in the past 24 hours.

The PRCS’s spokeswoman Errab Foqaha said on Sunday that a total of 77 Palestinians had been wounded in the past day.

According to the data, 18 Palestinians were injured from live rounds and 59 from rubber bullets.

Another 139 Palestinians have also been treated for tear gas inhalation and six for injuries sustained in beatings by Israeli security forces or settlers.

State of emergency

On Sunday, the Red Crescent also declared a level-three state of emergency in the West Bank and East al-Quds (Jerusalem), which indicates that the given situation requires a significant response from a humanitarian system.

It also reported at least 14 attacks against its staff and vehicles by Israeli forces and settlers over the past 72 hours.

Earlier in the day, Israeli police deliberately shot dead a Palestinian youth identified as Fadi Samir Mustafa Alloun near the Damascus Gate of al-Aqsa Mosque compound after accusing him of attempting to stab an Israeli settler. (Palestinians working for Israel telephone company were fired for posting the picture of martyr Alloun on Facebook)

This is while a video showing the moments leading to Alloun’s death show him running toward an Israeli police patrol as a group of settlers are chasing him.  (Trying for Israeli police protection!)

Following Alloun’s killing, tens of Israeli settlers stormed Palestinian homes and properties in the area, shouting anti-Arab and anti-Islam slogans.

They also stormed Alloun’s home and reportedly abducted three of his family members.

A day earlier, Palestinian sources said two Israelis were killed and two others wounded in a clash between a Palestinian youth named as Mohannad Rafiq Halab and Israeli settlers in the occupied Old City of al-Quds.

In recent months, Tel Aviv has applied harsh restrictions on entries into the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East al-Quds since.

Figures show that, on average, 39 Palestinians have been injured by Israeli forces per week since the beginning of the year.

Note: Apparently, France is about to lodge a complain to the UN against Israel settlement expansion and Obama has called on Netanyahu warning him that this time around he should not expect a US veto.

PRCS Declares a State of Emergency following the escalation of the attacks against Palestinians and its ambulances in the Past 72 hours

(Al-Bireh-4/10/2015): PRCS declared a level 3 state of emergency in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, in response to developments on the ground and increased attacks by occupation forces and settlers.

PRCS also activated its central Operations Room at its HQ in Al-Bireh, with all PRCS’ staff, teams and volunteers put on standby.

PRCS announced that fourteen attacks were carried out against its staff and vehicles by occupation forces and settlers in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip in the past 72 hours, in a serious escalation of violations against PRCS, its teams and the humanitarian services they render.

Amid a worrying escalation of violence in the West Bank, the Palestinian Red Crescent Society has declared a ‘State of Emergency’ following attacks against Palestinians and its ambulances over the past 3 days.

On Sunday the 4th of October, Israeli occupation soldiers attacked a PRCS’ ambulance in the line of duty in front of Al Quds University in Abou Diss, firing rubber bullets and tear gas grenades at it. (Palestinian university students are shared the uprising, possibly a third Intifada)

On the 2nd of October, occupation soldiers attacked an ambulance in Al Eissawiyeh to the North of Jerusalem.

They then proceeded to arrest an injured Palestinian from inside the ambulance.

In Boureen (Nablus Governorate), settlers prevented a PRCS’ ambulance from discharging its humanitarian duty and smashed its windshield.

The next day, 5 PRCS’ paramedics were beaten up by soldiers in Jerusalem.

That same day, another group of soldiers attacked with their batons another PRCS’ ambulance in the Old City of Jerusalem.

Also on the same day, occupation soldiers severely beat another ambulance crew in Jabal Al Taweel (Al-Bireh), wounding two paramedics.

They then kidnapped an injured Palestinian from inside the ambulance, firing tear gas grenades and rubber bullets at it.

PRCS underlines that these practices constitute a blatant violation of key IHL provisions, mainly the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949 on the protection of civilians in time of war, which legally applies to the oPt.

This Convention affords protection to the personnel engaged in the search for, removal and transporting of and caring for wounded and sick civilians.

It also calls for the respect of human life and dignity in times of military occupation. In particular, such practices constitute a crying violation of article 63 of the Fourth Geneva Convention which states that recognized National Red Cross (Red Crescent, Red Lion and Sun) Societies shall be allowed to pursue their activities.

PRCS urges the International Community, represented by the UN General Assembly and Security Council, to shoulder their responsibilities by taking the necessary steps to make Israeli occupation authorities comply with IHL provisions, and to put an end to the targeting of civilians and their properties.

It calls on these parties to compel Israel to respect IHL provisions regarding the respect of medical and PRCS’ emblems, and recalls that the occupying power is obliged to protect emergency, medical and relief personnel and to facilitate their safe access to the sick and wounded. End.
