Occupation Forces Shoot and Kill One Palestinian Man, Injure Six Others, Near Jenin

Israeli occupation forces shot and killed, on Wednesday evening, a Palestinian young man and injured six others during a massive military invasion into Ya’bad town, west of Jenin in the northern occupied West Bank, local sources reported.

At least 30 military vehicles including a bulldozer, moved into the town to demolish the family home of Diaa Hamarsheh, who killed 5 Israelis in Tel Aviv, Israel, before being killed by Israeli police on March 30, 2022.

Israeli forces stormed the town, isolated the home, wired it for demolition, deploying sharp-shooters on the rooftops of civilian homes, firing live rounds and tear gas canisters at residents.

The military invasion sparked protests among local Palestinians, which the army responded to by shooting and injuring at least seven people with live ammunition, killing one, and injuring six more, three of whom were deemed serious.

Soldiers shot and critically injured the young man, identified as Bilal Kabaha, 24, with live rounds in the chest and thigh. He was subsequently transferred to the Jenin Government Hospital, and pronounced dead.

Six other young men were shot with live rounds, including three who sustained serious injuries to the face, neck, and abdomen.

Dozens of mourners marched the streets of the town carrying the body of the slain young man, chanting angry slogans.

Meanwhile, it was reported that Israeli forces detained Ahmad Hamarsheh, the father of Diaa, during the occupation’s clear act of collective punishment.

Article 33 of the Fourth Geneva Convention states;

1. No protected person may be punished for an offence he or she has not personally committed. Collective penalties and likewise all measures of intimidation or of terrorism are prohibited.
2. Pillage is prohibited.
3. Reprisals against protected persons and their property are prohibited.
