DAMASCUS, SYRIA (9:32 P.M)- Eighteen year old, Hamza Yusuf Zamarah, was executed by Israeli occupation forces this morning in al-Khalil (Hebron).
The IDF announced that it was justified in its actions, claiming that Hamza stabbed an illegal Israeli settler near the settlement of Ariel – located in a different area of the West Bank – and that this was a revenge attack carried out by the Israeli army.
Israeli occupation forces had for approximately 12 hours, carried out raids in Nablus the previous day, claiming that it was also searching for the ‘Ariel’ settlement attacker. The raids resulted in clashes in which Israeli forces murdered another Palestinian teen along with injuring at least 110 (according to the Palestinian Red-Cresent).
Nablus is to the North of the Ariel settlement, al-Khalil is to the South and no evidence has been presented by the Israeli military to confirm that either of the teens they executed were linked in any way to the stabbing.
