RAMALLAH, Thursday, February 11, 2021 (WAFA) – The three Palestinian Arabic dailies published today highlighted the car ramming and killing of a Palestinian man in the north of the West Bank by an Israeli settler and the Israeli army demolition of the house of a Palestinian prisoner, also in the north of the West Bank.
The papers said Azzam Amer was killed when he was run over by a settler near his Haris village, north of Salfit, in what the governor of Salfit, Abdullah Kmeil, said the incident was premeditated, according to al-Ayyam daily.
Further north in the village of Tura, near Jenin, the Israeli occupation army blew up the home of Mohammad Kabaha who is accused of killing an Israeli settler in December.
Al-Hayat al-Jadida daily said the army also dismantled five Palestinian-owned tents used as homes and other structures in the south of the West Bank, and ordered a halt on construction of 11 houses and a playing ground in Yasouf village in the north of the West Bank.
Al-Quds daily said soldiers also shot and wounded a Palestinian worker in the town of Bartaa, in the north of the West Bank.
It also said in another story that Israel has started to give Israeli names to several areas of the old town of occupied Hebron in the south of the West Bank with an intention to make them Israeli areas.
It said that Israel has started to build a bypass road for Palestinians only that links Anata and Izzarieh towns, east of Jerusalem, in order to remove al-Zaim army checkpoint to allow free access to Jerusalem for Israeli settlers.
Al-Ayyam said Israel has drawn a plan to build 900 new housing units in the illegal Israeli settlement of Pisgat Zeev, north of Jerusalem.
The three papers also reported on the aftermath of the meeting of the Palestinian factions in Cairo in which they agreed to hold the elections as planned.
Al-Hayat al-Jadida quoted Fatah Central Committee member, Jibril Rjoub, saying that the Central Committee will meet on Saturday with President Mahmoud Abbas to discuss the results of the meeting.
Al-Quds quoted Hamas leader Saleh Arouri saying that the preferred choice of Hamas is to participate in the elections through one unfitted national list.
The three papers also reported on coronavirus and its toll at home, the region, and the world, as well as on the implications of the ruling by the International Criminal Court to start an investigation into Israeli war crimes in the occupied Palestinian territories.
