Newspapers Review: Israeli army killing of three young Palestinians in Jenin focus of dailies

RAMALLAH, Saturday, June 18, 2022 (WAFA) - The Israeli army killing of three young Palestinians yesterday morning in the northern West Bank city of Jenin was highlighted on the front page of the three Palestinian Arabic dailies - al-Quds, al-Ayyam, and al-Hayat al-Jadida - published today.

“Three martyrs in Jenin,” was the main front-page headline in al-Quds daily.

Al-Ayyam said in its main front-page story on this topic that the three young people were assassinated after they were ambushed by the Israeli occupation forces.

The third daily, al-Hayat al-Jadida, said “the days are still red,” in reference to the Palestinian blood being shed by Israel in the occupied territories.

Here are the main headlines:

It said the presidency has condemned the assassination of the three young men.

The three dailies also reported on the weekly anti-occupation, anti-settlement protests in the occupied territories and the Israeli army's brutal crackdown that usually leaves dozens injured from rubber-coated metal bullets or tear gas inhalation.

They said settlers have also attacked Palestinian civilians in different places.

Al-Quds reported about a new Israeli settlement plan in occupied East Jerusalem intended to separate al-Musrara area from Damascus Gate.

It said in a report by its correspondent that Washington is still calling on Israel to reveal what information it has regarding the killing of journalist Shireen Abu Akleh last month.

Al-Ayyam quoted Abu Akleh’s brother, Anton, saying his family is currently focusing its efforts on bringing his sister’s assassination to the International Criminal Court and al-Hayat al-Jadida quoted him saying accusing Israel of killing Shireen.

Al-Ayyam said three Palestinians were killed in crime-related incidents in Nazareth and Kufr Qari Arab towns inside Israel, while al-Hayat al-Jadida said a total of 40 Palestinians were killed in crimes inside Israel since the beginning of the year.

The dailies also reported on the latest in the Russian war on Ukraine and its impact on the world, as well as on the resurgence of Covid19 in Israel and elsewhere.
