Newspapers Review: Palestinians killed by Israeli gunfire focus of dailies

RAMALLAH, Thursday, June 2, 2022 (WAFA) – News about the Palestinians who were shot dead by the Israeli forces in several areas in the occupied West Bank hit the front pages of the three Arabic Palestinian dailies on Thursday.

Al-Hayat al-Jadida, al-Quds and al-Ayyam said Israeli forces Wednesday morning shot dead Ghofran Warasnah, 31, hitting her in the chest at the entrance of Al-Arroub refugee camp, north of Hebron.

The Red Crescent said that the Israeli forces prevented medics from approaching Warasnah until after 20 minutes of her injury. The bullet grazed Warasnah’s ribs, passing through the flesh under her left armpit and exiting from her right side. The Palestinian Red Crescent (PRC) medics said that the soldiers obstructed their ability to access Warasnah and took 20 minutes to allow medics to treat her.

The dailies also reported that a large Israeli military force, accompanied by 30 military vehicles and a bulldozer stormed the town of Yabad to the southwest of the occupied West Bank city of Jenin, as the army snipers climbed onto the roofs of houses in the town, firing live bullets and tear gas canisters at the town’s residents.

A youth who was identified as Bilal Kabaha, 24, was shot by live bullets in the chest and thigh, critically injuring him. He was transferred to Jenin Government Hospital, where he succumbed to his critical wounds.

Israeli forces cordoned off the three-storey family house of alleged Palestinian attacker Diya Hamarsheh in preparation to demolishing it as part of its collective punishment policy against the Palestinian people.

The papers said that Yaser al-Masry, 41, from the city of Deir al-Balah, central of the Gaza Strip, was Wednesday evening pronounced dead after succumbing to the wounds he sustained during the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip in May, 2021. He was getting treatment in Egypt.

Three Palestinian youth were shot and injured by live bullets, and dozens of others suffocated during clashes that erupted tonight in al-Arroub refugee camp, north of Hebron, in the southern occupied West Bank, as reported in the dailies, which added that Israeli forces tore down a number of dwellings and agricultural structures in Masafer Yatta, south of Hebron.

The dailies said that Israeli occupation forces evening delivered ten notices ordering to stop the construction work on houses and structures belonging to Palestinian residents in the village of Marda to the north of Salfit.

Israeli bulldozers Wednesday razed a Palestinian house in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of al-Issawiya, as reported in the papers, which further more reported that Israeli forces Wednesday seized agricultural tractors and other vehicles in several areas in the northern Jordan Valley.

Al-Hayat al-Jadida and al-Ayyam said that 15 US congress members Tuesday sent a letter to the US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and called on him to stop the Israeli government’s expulsion of Palestinian people from the villages of Masafer Yatta in the occupied West Bank.
