A climax of violence erupted this Thursday across the West Bank and East Jerusalem, resulting in the deaths of two Israeli Occupation soldiers and the execution of three Palestinians.

The “escalation of violence” reported upon across the Western Press, this Thursday, was rooted in a recent campaign of violent raids by the Israeli Army, which resulted in the murder of two Palestinians.

In the Tulkarem refugee camp, on the 4th of December, during a series of violent raids conducted by the Israeli Army, Mohammed Hossam Hbali was shot in the back of the head by an Israeli soldier. The twenty two year old suffered with mental health problems.

Late this Wednesday, following the recent events, Israeli forces pursued and executed Salih Barghouti, in his car, close to his home in Ramallah.

Later, on Thursday morning, Ashraf Na’Awla, was also killed in the Askar refugee camp, by Israeli soldiers who entered his home. His body was stolen and his entire immediate family arrested.

Both Ashraf Na’Awla and Salih Barghouti, were allegedly behind seperate attacks upon Israeli settlers, according to the Israeli Army.

Palestinians then took to the streets, across the West Bank. Israeli occupation forces, as well as illegal settlers, also began a series of violent attacks upon Palestinians.

A Palestinian man from Jerusalem, Majd Muteir, was later shot dead, following a knife attack upon Israeli police in East Jerusalem, resulting in two reported injuries.

All three previous killings took place, within a 6 hour time period.

Israeli police forces blocked the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, Thursday morning, preventing Palestinian worshippers from performing their morning prayer at the site.

Another Palestinian man was then killed, in Al-Bireh near Ramallah. The 60 year old man, Hamdan Tarfiq Ardah, was a victim of a Israeli settler car ramming attack. Israeli military forces prevented Palestinian ambulances from reaching the elderly man.

Later that day, unidentified Palestinian gunmen opened fire upon several Israeli soldiers, at a bus-stop near the Ofra (illegal Jewish Settlement), killing two and severely injuring a third. Hamas, claimed responsibility for the attack. The Israeli military later admitted the deaths of its soldiers and released their identities.

Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, has announced his governments plans to legalise more illegal West Bank settlements. The military has also launched an additional large scale program of home demolitions, throughout the West Bank.

Over 300 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces this year alone.

Many are anticipating further escalations. Israeli media are spreading fears amongst their population of a possible third intifada, mounting severe pressure on Netanyahu.

Ethnic cleansing at its worst.


End 1970/early 1971, king Hussein of Jordan killed 27,000 fakestinians after Arafat tried the same kinda shït in his country 😉
Israelis are too nice. I don’t think Bashar would take gloves like ’em, would Palis start doing their usual shït in Syria 😉 Thus, PLO and Hamas are banned in Syria 😉

@BSD, Ethnic cleansing is when all Palestinian people in the area are sent to Muslim Arab countries such as KSA. Go and get Your BSD treated.
