Ramallah – Israeli forces shot and killed a 15-year-old Palestinian boy today in the northern occupied West Bank.

Imad Khaled Saleh Hashash, 15, was shot and killed by Israeli forces around 4 a.m. this morning as he stood on the roof of his home watching as Israeli forces conducted a raid in the Balata refugee camp located southeast of Nablus in the occupied West Bank, according to information collected by Defense for Children International – Palestine. Imad sustained a gunshot wound to the head and was taken to Rafidia hospital in Nablus where he was pronounced dead.

“Israeli forces continue to kill Palestinian children with impunity,” said Ayed Abu Eqtaish, accountability program director at DCIP. “Systemic impunity means Israeli forces can kill Palestinian children in their homes without fear of any consequences.”

Israeli forces raided Balata refugee camp to conduct search and arrest operations around 3 a.m., an eyewitness told DCIP. After being awakened by gunshots, Imad and his brother went to the roof of their home to observe the raid, according to information gathered by DCIP. Imad had taken out his cell phone and was attempting to photograph or film the raid, when he was shot in the head.

Imad’s brothers were initially unable to evacuate him from the home due to tear gas fired by Israeli forces, according to information gathered by DCIP. Imad was transported to Rafidia hospital in Nablus in a neighbor’s taxi, where he was pronounced dead.

Imad is the 12th Palestinian child shot and killed by Israeli forces in the occupied West Bank since the beginning of 2021. Israeli forces shot Mohammad Mo’ayyad Bahjat Abu Sara on July 28, while he was a passenger in his father’s car. Israeli forces fired 13 bullets at the vehicle as it retreated from the area in which they were deployed.

Israeli forces shot Mohammad Munir Mohammad Tamimi, 17, in the back on July 24. Mohammad underwent surgery at Salfit governmental hospital but succumbed to his wounds later that evening.

In June, Israeli forces killed two Palestinian teens from the occupied West Bank village of Beita located southeast of Nablus. Israeli forces shot and killed 15-year-old Ahmad Bani-Shamsa in the head with live ammunition around 5:30 p.m. on June 16 in Beita, DCIP reported. Ahmad did not present any threat to Israeli forces at the time he was shot. On June 11, Israeli forces shot and killed 16-year-old Mohammad Hamayel in the chest with live ammunition around 4:30 p.m. during a protest, DCIP reported.

Under international law, intentional lethal force is only justified in circumstances where a direct threat to life or of serious injury is present. However, investigations and evidence collected by DCIP regularly suggest that Israeli forces use lethal force against Palestinian children in circumstances that may amount to extrajudicial or wilful killings.

  1. Under international law, intentional lethal force is only justified in circumstances where a direct threat to life or of serious injury is present

    Yes; but the Zios pay no attention to international law. They figure it’s some kind of invention of the goyim and doesn’t apply to Jews. Every Palestinian child shot dead is “One less!” as they shouted gleefully at Kafr Qassem as they gunned down one villager after another. That was away back in 1967, but the Zios haven’t changed; they are still genocidal megalomaniacs who imagine that Jews are the master race.

    • Israel can only get away with their disgusting treatment of the Palestinians, because they control the USA Government, like an “Anaesthetised Donkey”, who are powerless against Israel……..

  2. I look forward to the day the khazar poison is extirpated from the land of Palestine. It will come, of that I have no doubt, as soon as the squatter welfare warfare demons are no longer funded by USSAN tax cattle in the inevitable and fast approaching collapse of the fiat filth Saudi Mercan toilet paper dollah. Then the problem of what to do with the surviving khazar thugs and their broods. Would you want these wanton zionazi killers in a ghetto anywhere near you and your loved ones?

    Onward to Palestine for the Semitic people of Palestine.

    Boycott everything that stinks of zion

    • They were given the Jewish Autonomous Region all to themselves in Eastern Russia by Jo Stalin in 1928. So they have no need to persecute the lovely, tolerant and forgiving people of Palestine. It is the size and beauty of Switzerland with 250,000 there, proving it’s o.k. and no Hamas ‘terrorists’ within 3,000 miles. Their claim to religious origins in the Holy Land is discredited by their irreligious, discriminatory, inhumane, violent and cruel treatment of indigenous people. And their genetic links have been revealed as fraudulent by evidence from the history of the Khazars, converts in 740AD, who comprise 90% of Israelis.

  3. The IDF is a criminal mafia. If what they were doing was legal they would not need to shoot a child taking photos of their crimes. It illustrates their cruelty, inhumanity, genocidal intent to ‘wipe Palestinians off the face of the Earth’.

  4. With the United States acting in a multitude of ways to protect Israel, enable Israel’s actions such as described here, with other countries, especially those of Europe, et al, Israel will continue to murder, to thieve, to destroy, to imprison, to torture its non-jewish citizens, and war upon and plunder its neighbors.

    America must come to know its alliance with Israel is such.

    To the author and those who voice opposition to Israel and its soiling of its allies, continue. Continue to object, to expose and oppose Israel and its allies.

    Otherwise, there is a complicity in not objecting, exposing and opposing. And fear not the evil beast that Israel was in its creation, its continued operation, its future objectives.
