Video shows Israel’s shooting deaths of Palestinian teens

Israeli soldiers shot dead teenagers Mohammed Odeh Abu al-Thaher and Nadim Siyam Nawara during a protest coinciding with the 66th anniversary of the Nakba outside Israel’s Ofer prison near the West Bank city of Ramallah.

Israel had claimed it fired rubber bullets during the May 15 protest to disperse the protesters.

But footage released by the Defence for Children International (DCI) captured from a security camera at a nearby house shows the youths, believed to be aged 16 and 17, being shot dead as they calmly walked.

The video shows the first victim walking in the opposite direction of the occupation forces before he is struck by a bullet in the back. Onlookers immediately rushed to his aid.

The second victim is shot in the chest in the same location as he walked slowly. He falls to the ground and struggles to get back up as others assist him and signal for the occupation forces to cease fire.

Both children were unarmed.

“Israeli forces continue to use excessive force and recklessly fire live ammunition and rubber-coated metal bullets on unarmed protesters, including children, killing them with impunity,” Rifat Kassis, executive director of DCI-Palestine, said in a statement.

The report said a third, 15-year-old victim was shot in the back and left lung during the protest and is recovering at a Ramallah hospital.

International human rights groups have repeatedly condemned Israel’s use of deadly force against Palestinian protesters and civilians in the West Bank and Gaza.

“The Israeli army and border police used excessive, including lethal, force in response to rock-throwing protesters who could not have posed a threat to the lives of the soldiers and policemen in or near the fortified military camp,” Amnesty International said in a statement last Thursday.

    Nothing more than demons walking-on-two-legs, and THIS is what the human-race faces, and has faced, for millennia. Mark-my-words: WE ARE ALL PALESTINIANS IN their EYES, EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US WHO ARE NOT ONE OF them.

    @ Lindsey,
    Those are demonic monsters, I call them creatures. You have a better name for them – demons-walking-on-two-legs. Their evil is beyond human capability. You are right, we are all Palestinians in their eyes.

    I cannot bear to watch these videos anymore. I am physically ill. I have done it the past, not because i am sadistic, but because i do not want them to suffer alone. I am aware that they shall come after my children and i next. These creatures are not human beings, i honestly do not know where they come from. They are demonic. So they have satan in them. We shall have to conquer them and not be afraid. We must remember that there is life after life. I have come across many vicious characters. When i tell them what i think of them, then they are very revengeful and do what they can to destroy me, cowards that they are. There shall be justice someday. We continue what we do to expose them. They shall also die some day shall be in the ground like the rest of us. There is nothing they can do about it. From our our side we shall keep on being righteous.

    I coined the term “demons walking-on-two-legs” over two, and going on, three years ago, now, and it was because there was simply no term that described the BEHAVIOR of these creatures better than that, and in a detailed way that no one could not understand. I am very pleased that people are now, finally, not only understanding the term, but are now using it various ways, just like another term that is now being used much more often, “the cabal”.
