Terrorists killed by Israeli police after resisting arrest were “murdered in cold ‎blood”‎

     ‎“PLO Executive Committee Member and Head of the Department for Jerusalem Affairs ‎Ahmed Qurei ‘Abu Alaa’ condemned the execution of Jerusalem citizen Yussuf Al-‎Ramouni, 32, after he was attacked by a group of Jewish extremists inside a bus ‎belonging to the Israeli Egged company… and warned of the possibility that the gangs ‎of extremist Jews and settlers would continue their crimes and systematic terrorism ‎aimed against each and every Palestinian Arab in Jerusalem. He added: ‘This is not ‎the first crime the Jewish extremist gangs have committed. They have committed ‎several [other] crimes that reflect the Israeli terrorist mentality… with the murder of Abd ‎Al-Rahman Al-Shaloudi of Jerusalem, the youth Mutaz Hijazi, Ibrahim Al-Akari and ‎dozens of Jerusalem residents whom Israel has murdered in cold blood.’”‎

Notes:‎ Yussuf Al-Ramouni – Arab bus driver from East Jerusalem who was found hanged at a bus ‎terminal in Jerusalem on Nov. 16, 2014. Although an autopsy performed by the Israeli ‎Abu Kabir Forensic Institute and a pathologist chosen by the family of Al-Ramouni ‎revealed no signs of violence, Palestinian media immediately presented the incident as ‎a murder perpetrated by Jewish settlers. The Palestinian pathologist later changed his ‎mind, claiming that there were signs of violence on the body.‎

Abd Al-Rahman Al-Shaloudi – On Oct. 22, 2014, Al-Shaloudi drove his car into a light-‎rail station in Jerusalem, killing three-month-old Israeli-American Haya Zissel-Brown ‎and Karen Mosquera, 22, of Ecuador, and injuring 7 others. He was shot by police while ‎attempting to flee the scene, and later died of his wounds.‎

Mutaz Hijazi – Islamic Jihad member and released prisoner who attempted to ‎assassinate Rabbi Yehuda Glick, a prominent activist working to assure rights for Jews ‎to visit and pray on the Temple Mount, on Oct. 29, 2014. Glick was seriously wounded in ‎the attack; Hijazi was killed soon afterwards when he opened fire on an Israeli police ‎force that was attempting to arrest him.‎

Ibrahim Al-Akari – Hamas terrorist from East Jerusalem who deliberately ran over people at a light-rail station in Jerusalem on Nov. 5, 2014, killing Jidan Assad, 38, and Shalom Aharon Badani, 17, and injuring at least 13 others. Al-Akari was shot and killed by Israeli police officers who arrived on the scene.
