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.
