PA Minister of Justice: Israel is carrying out “crimes of summary executions … [Israel] is using the excuse that they tried to stab... and other baseless excuses" as a pretext to kill Palestinians

Headline: “The [PA] Minister of Justice: The executions of the Al-Rajabi Martyrs is proof that Israel is continuing to commit war crimes and conduct organized terror”
     “[PA] Minister of Justice Ali Abu Diyak said that the crime of the executions of child Martyr (Shahid) Amir Jamal Al-Rajabi (17) and Martyr Muhannad Jamil Al-Rajabi (21) (i.e., terrorist stabbers, wounded 1) next to the Ibrahimi Mosque (i.e., Cave of the Patriarchs) in Hebron today (Monday) [Sept. 19, 2016] is organized state terror, and additional proof that Israel is continuing to commit war crimes and crimes against humanity…
The minister of justice added in a statement that he published: ‘Israel is waging a one-sided campaign against our people, and is intensifying the crimes of murder and aggression (sic., Israel is responding to an escalation in Palestinian terror attacks). In less than a week, it has committed many crimes of summary executions; occupation forces killed Martyr Muhammad Abd Al-Fattah Sarahin (i.e., wanted terrorist), who was shot and died as a Martyr in his house in the town of Beit Ula last Thursday [Sept. 15, 2016], and after him came a procession of Martyrs on Friday and Saturday.
On Friday young Muhammad Thalaji Kayed Al-Rajabi (18) (i.e., terrorist stabber, wounded 1) in the Tel Rumeida region in the center of Hebron, and Martyr Firas Musa Muhammad Al-Khaddour (18) (i.e., terrorist who carried out a car ramming attack, wounded 3) from Bani Na’im that is next to the entrance to the settlement of Kiryat Arba in Hebron, died as Martyrs.’
He continued: ‘Likewise, the young Jordanian Sa’id Hayel Al-Amru (28) (i.e., terrorist stabber) died as a Martyr… He entered Palestine in order to pray at the Al-Aqsa Mosque on Thursday, and died as a Martyr on Friday, Sept. 16, at the Damascus Gate in occupied Jerusalem. Afterwards Hatem Abd Al-Hafiz Abd Al-Rahim Al-Shaloudi (25) (i.e., terrorist stabber, wounded 1) died as a Martyr last Saturday in the Tel Rumeida neighborhood in Hebron.
Abu Diyak clarified that the West Bank has turned into a scene of constant crime by the occupation forces. He emphasized that most of the victims of these crimes are youth and children, and that the occupation is using the excuse that they tried to stab or throw rocks at the occupation soldiers, and other baseless excuses.”

PMW Note: The rate of terror attacks by Palestinians against Israelis increased again in mid-September 2016. As a result, the rate of Palestinian terrorists being injured or killed in response to these attacks has increased. The following are some examples:

Sept. 16

• Sa’id Al-Amru – 28-year-old Jordanian journalist who attacked Israeli border police officers with a knife in each hand, trying to stab them at the Damascus Gate of Jerusalem’s Old City on Sept. 16, 2016. The officers shot and killed Al-Amru, and found additional knives on his person as well. Jordan condemned the officers’ killing of Al-Amru and denied that he tried to carry out a terror attack. However, Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs presented security camera footage of the incident clearly showing Al-Amru trying to stab the officers.

• Muhammad Kayed Al-Rajabi – 15-year-old Palestinian terrorist who stabbed and wounded an Israeli soldier at the Jilbar checkpoint in Hebron on Sept. 16, 2016. In response Israeli soldiers shot and killed Al-Rajabi.

• Firas and Raghad Al-Khaddour – Palestinian terrorists, an engaged couple, who carried out a car ramming attack against 3 Israeli youth, injuring them, at the entrance to Kiryat Arba on Sept. 16, 2016. Firas was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers and Raghad was injured and transferred to an Israeli hospital. Raghad left a will stating her reason for participating in the attack was that her sister, Majd Al-Khaddour, was killed at the same junction on June 24, 2016, when she carried out a car ramming attack.

• Rocks thrown at an Israeli bus on the road between Jerusalem and Ma’ale Adumim, injuring the driver.

Sept. 17

• Hatem Al-Shaloudi – 25-year-old Palestinian terrorist who stabbed and injured an Israeli soldier in Hebron on Sept. 17, 2016. Al-Shaloudi was shot and killed in response by Israeli soldiers. Security camera footage of the incident clearly shows Al-Shaloudi stabbing the soldier.

Sept. 19

• Ayman Al-Kurd – 20-year-old Palestinian terrorist with Israeli resident status who stabbed and wounded 2 Israeli police officers near Herod’s Gate of Jerusalem’s Old City on Sept. 19, 2016. One of the officers shot and wounded Al-Kurd.

• Amir Jamal Al-Rajabi and Muhannad Jamil Al-Rajabi – two Palestinian terrorists and relatives, aged 18 and 21 respectively, who on Sept. 19, 2016, stabbed and wounded an Israeli border police officer next to the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron. The two terrorists were shot and killed by Israeli officers during the attack.

Muhammad Abd Al-Fattah Sarahin – a wanted Palestinian terrorist who was killed while resisting arrest on Sept. 15, 2016. Israeli special forces arrived at Sarahin’s home in Beit Ula northwest of Hebron to arrest him, and when he tried to escape the forces shot and killed him. PMW has been unable to verify the nature of his crimes.
