Three Palestinians including UN relief worker killed by Israel

Palestine’s Ambassador to the UK has condemned the Israeli raid on a refugee camp near East Jerusalem that resulted in the death of three Palestinians including a UN relief worker and the injuring 16 including 5 children.

 

The Israeli occupation forces entered the Qalandia Refugee camp in the early morning of August 26 in search of Yousef Al-Khalib, former Palestinian prisoner who was released in 2011, for questioning. As the forces searched the home of Abdul Al-Khatib they caused a stir that resulted in the gathering of several young men and boys throwing stones. The forces responded with the firing of live ammunition, sound bombs, and tear gas canisters.

 

Both Yunis Jamal Jahjou, 23, and Jehad Mansour Aslan, 21, were shot and killed instantly. Rubin Abdul Rahman Zayed, 33, a staff member for the UN’s Relief and Works Agency and father of four, was hit several times by live bullets in the chest and also killed. Of the 16 civilians that were wounded, 5 were children and 6 are still in a critical condition.

 

In a statement to The Muslim News Palestinian Ambassador to London, Manuel Hassassian, said, “Once again Israel, the occupying power, carries on its flagrant policy of aggression by using excessive and indiscriminate force against our people. These actions fuel tensions on the ground and reveal Israel’s true intentions to undermine the current peace talks.”

 

He added, “We urge the UK Government to end Israel’s impunity and intervene immediately to prevent the collapse of the international peace efforts by pressuring Israel to cease the killing of Palestinian civilians and comply with international and humanitarian law.”

 

The latest violence comes in the wake of the news that the Israeli Government has approved the construction of 1500 illegal settlement units in occupied East Jerusalem, an expansion that will result in the confiscation of 580 dunams of Palestinian land. These actions by the Israeli Government continue to obstruct and impede the progress of the negotiations and peace talks that have been futile so far.
