Newspapers Review: Israeli killing of a Palestinian from Jerusalem focus of dailies


RAMALLAH, Thursday, November 26, 2020 (WAFA) – The Israeli occupation forces killing of a Palestinian man from East Jerusalem was highlighted on the front page of the three Palestinian Arabic dailies published today.

Al-Ayyam described the shooting at a car driven by Noor Shuqeir, 36, from Silwan neighborhood, at an army checkpoint east of Jerusalem and killing him as an “execution.”

Al-Quds and al-Hayat al-Jadida said that in addition to the killing of Shuqeir, the Israeli occupation authorities demolished several Palestinian-owned structures in various areas of the occupied West Bank.

Al-Quds quoted European diplomats saying after visiting Palestinian residents of Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in Jerusalem that evicting the residents from their homes in order to turn them over to the settlers is an obvious violation of international law.

It said the Israeli government is preparing a plan to legalize the illegal settlement outposts in the occupied territories.

Al-Ayyam said Egypt has condemned Israeli approval of the construction of thousands of settlement units in the occupied Palestinian territories.

Coronavirus in Palestine and the hike in numbers following the announcement of nine deaths and 1720 new cases in the West Bank and Gaza was the second important topic highlighted on the front page of the three dailies.

A-Ayyam said that three deaths and 140 new corona cases were recorded in East Jerusalem over the past two days.

Al-Hayat al-Jadida quoted Fatah movement saying that the stance of President Mahmoud Abbas and Fatah leadership regarding Jerusalem is firm and that they will not accept the fait accompli policy.

It also quoted Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh calling for a change in the fait accompli situation and giving priority to the Palestinian question.

It said European Parliament members called for imposing sanctions on Israel.

Al-Quds quoted Hamas leader Saleh Arouri saying that the Palestinian reconciliation did not return to square one.

Al-Ayyam said that the commission-general of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine refugees (UNRWA) has met with representatives of the agency’s employees in Gaza to discuss the financial situation and the possibility of the employees not getting paid but without any progress in the talks over the salaries.
