RAMALLAH, Sunday, June 26, 2022 (WAFA) – The three Palestinian Arabic-language dailies focused today on the death of a 16-year-old Palestinian teenager by Israeli gunfire in the town of Silwad, northeast of Ramallah.
They said Mohammad Abdallah Hamed died on Friday-Saturday night of wounds sustained by Israeli occupation army gunfire. He was first taken away, wounded, by the occupation army before he was reported dead.
On a different subject, the dailies said the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) reaffirmed President Mahmoud Abbas as Chairman and President of the State of Palestine and the PLO Executive Committee.
Al-Hayat al-Jadida said in its main headline that the Central Committee of Fatah Movement convened last night in Ramallah, chaired by President Mahmoud Abbas, and affirmed that “our people will not stand idly by in the face of the Israeli occupation’s crimes that have crossed all red lines.”
It said the Central Committee of Fatah Movement affirmed that “the Israeli occupation will be held to account before international courts, on top of which is the ICC.”
Al-Ayyam also highlighted: “The Central Committee of Fatah: Peace can only be achieved though a political horizon ending the occupation, and our people will not stand idly by in the face of the Israeli crimes.”
Al-Quds also reported on the Fatah Central Committee meeting in Ramallah.
Al-Ayyam said a group of extremist Israeli settlers yesterday attacked Palestinian farmers working in a land near the town of Turmus-Ayya, northeast of Ramallah, injuring one farmer by a stone in his head and setting a vehicle on fire.
Al-Hayat al-Jadida said Palestinian detainee Ra’ed Rayyam remains on hunger strike for 80 days in a row today in protest of his detention without charge or trial by the Israeli occupation authorities.
Al-Quds said Ismail Haniyeh, the Head of the political bureau of Hamas, and Ziad Nakhaleh, the Secretary-General of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, warned during a meeting in Beirut that the Israeli occupation was trying to “cut the arteries of communication between the Palestinian people and the rest of the Arab and Muslim world.”
