Euro-Med documents Israel’s killing of a young man on Gaza border

The Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights documented an Israeli soldier killing of a Palestinian youth during a Friday demonstration on the Gaza Strip border.

 

The Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights documented an Israeli soldier killing of a Palestinian youth during a Friday demonstration on the Gaza Strip border.

 

The Euro-Med stressed that pictures footage of the incident and witnesses’ testimonies show Israeli soldiers are avenging the lives of Palestinians.

 

This policy has been adopted by soldiers for years and has even received support from Israeli leaders, the Euro-Med said.

 

29-year-old Mohammed Mohaisen from the Gaza Strip, died of his wounds sustained after an Israeli soldier shot him in the chest at less than 50 meters.

 

According to eyewitnesses, Mohaisen was among dozens of protesters who gathered on the eastern border of Gaza City on Friday, opposing President Trump's Jerusalem declaration.

 

Journalist Saber Nour al-Din, who documented the incident, said: Muhammad did not pose any threat to the Israeli forces and did not even attempt to cross the border. But an Israeli soldier targeted him anyway."

 

The footage showed Mohaisen standing less than 50 meters away from Israeli soldiers in a military vehicle.

 

He appeared to have thrown stones at the soldiers from behind the fence. It clearly shows that he did not pose imminent threat of death to the Israeli forces; there was no justification for targeting him. The way Mohaisen was killed is not a today Israeli policy. It has been in place for years in the Palestinian territories, both in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, but it is more visible on the border with the Gaza Strip, where there is a separation fence between Israeli soldiers and demonstrators. However, Israeli forces do not hesitate to target demonstrators with live ammunition and in the upper parts of the body.

 

Since the outbreak of protests against Trump's decision, seven Palestinians have been killed and more than 600 were wounded on the Gaza border.
