- Amid increasing violence in occupied Jerusalem and the rest of
the West Bank, Israeli forces executed a Palestinian youth in cold
blood early on Sunday morning.
Israeli forces have
that the Old City of Jerusalem will be open only to Jews and foreign
tourists for the next 48 hours. No Palestinians except residents
will be allowed in.
In a further escalation,
Naftali Bennett, the Israeli education minister who
openly boasts about how many Arabs he has killed,
announced he plans to spend Sunday night’s Jewish holiday of
Simhat Torah in the Old City.
Bennett heads the Habeyit Hayehudi (Jewish Home) party whose
senior member, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked, has openly
called for genocide of Palestinians.
Israeli authorities claimed that 19-year-old Fadi Samir Alloun
was killed after a
stabbing attack that wounded an Israeli teenager. They presented
no evidence connecting Alloun to the alleged stabbing.
But videos posted online show that the youth was executed in cold
blood as he was chased by a mob of Israeli Jews baying for his
As the video above begins, voices can be heard in Hebrew shouting
– apparently at police – “Shoot him! He’s a terrorist! Shoot him!”
and “Don’t wait! Shoot him!”
Alloun can be seen backing away from the mob, along the tracks of
the Jerusalem Light Rail.
The lights of a police car can then be seen and the sound of
seven gunshots heard. Alloun falls to the ground. At no time in the
video was he any threat to anyone.
Wattan TV says
the killing occurred in the Musrara area, just outside the walls of
the Old City, near the Damascus Gate.
Kill first, ask questions later
A police officer – apparently the shooter – can be seen
approaching Alloun. Meanwhile celebratory voices are heard shouting
“Yes! Yes! Son of a bitch!” and “Wow!” and “He’s an Arab!”
“Death to the Arabs!” others shout.
A police officer then asks, “Where are the injured?” This
suggests that the police shot first and only asked questions
It was a cold-blooded execution at the behest of a lynch mob.
It shows the mob clearly inciting for Alloun to be
killed as they chase him. The Palestinian youth is trying to escape.
After police shoot him dead, an officer can be
heard asking one of the mob, “Did
he stab anyone?”
The Israeli youth answers that Alloun did not.
While details about the alleged stabbing – and whether Alloun had
anything to do with it – are disputed, what is in no doubt is what
is visible in the video: he was shot dead in cold blood when he
presented no threat to anyone by police who were answering to a mob.
Friends and family
told the Quds
news site that Alloun was gifted with a beautiful singing voice.
He often gave the call to prayer from the Martrys
Mosque in the Jerusalem village of
Alloun’s family had long been victims of Israel’s
occupation policies in Jerusalem. According to Quds, his
mother had been a permit to return to Jerusalem from Jordan, where
she had gone after her father died. Israel refused to allow the
family to reunite, meaning Fadi and his father lived in Jerusalem,
while his mother and brother Muhammad remained in Jordan.
Friends said Alloun was a sensitive and quiet
person who never showed anger toward anyone.
The execution of Alloun comes as Israel escalates
its violent attacks on Palestinians in the wake of recent killings
of settlers in Jerusalem and the rest of the West Bank.
On Saturday, 19-year-old Palestinian Muhannad
fatally stabbed two Israelis in the Old City of Jerusalem.
Nehamia Lavi, 41, was a rabbi in the Israeli army and Aaron Benita,
21, was a combat soldier. Lavi lived in occupied East Jerusalem and
Bennett in the West Bank settlement of Beitar Illit.
Palestinian and Israeli media have reported a
sharp escalation in attacks on Palestinians and their property
across the West Bank by Israeli occupation forces and settlers in
The society said it had faced 14 attacks against
its medical staff and ambulances over the past 72 hours. It
News Agency that 96 Palestinians had been injured by Israeli
live fire, rubber-coated steel bullets and other weapons between
Saturday and Sunday evenings.
In Burin village, in the northern West Bank,
Palestinians had to defend their homes after Israeli settlers set
fire to trees and plants in the village and threw stones and bottles
Palestinians have attempted to prevent the entry
of Israeli occupation forces into the village of Surda, near
Ramallah, in order to destroy the Halabi family home.
Soldiers attacked Palestinians attempting to
protect the home, with teargas and stun grenades.
Summary home destruction is a form of collective
punishment, illegal under international law, that Israel only
applies to Palestinians.
Nowhere has been safe. Early Sunday, a group of
undercover Israeli agents entered the al-Arabi hospital in Nablus,
disguised as Palestinians escorting a patient, and kidnapped another
patient, 23-year-old Karam al-Masri, at gunpoint.
