author Friday November 08, 2013

    The Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) based in Gaza
    published its weekly report on Israeli violations in the occupied
    territories, in the period between October 21 and November 6 2013,
    and said that Israel army killed five Palestinians, and injured
    dozens of residents.

It stated that, on October 31, soldiers killed four members of the 
Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of the Hamas movement, during clashes 
that took place as the army invaded Palestinian areas between Al-Qarara 
and Bani Suhaila village, east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of 
the Gaza Strip.

Three of the slain fighters were in a tunnel that was bombarded by the 
invading soldiers, and their bodies were buried under the rubble.

Also on October 31, soldiers shot and killed a Palestinian civilian in 
Qabatia village, near the northern West Bank city of Jenin.

Furthermore, a Palestinian political prisoner identified as Abdul-Halim 
Torabi, died on November 5 at the Affoula Israeli hospital.

The army kidnapped him on January 7 2013 despite the fact he suffered 
from leukemia.

He was held at the Al-Affoula hospital after being moved from Majeddo 
Prison following a sharp deterioration due to the seriousness of his 
condition, resulting from the lack of adequate and specialized medical 

The PCHR said that the army conducted at least 50 invasions into 
Palestinian communities in the West Bank, and kidnapped 50 Palestinians, 
including seven children.

Among the detainees were some political leaders of the Hamas movement. 
Several Palestinians were also kidnapped on roadblocks across the West Bank.

It added that Israeli Navy boats continued to target Palestinian 
fishermen in Palestinian territorial waters in the Gaza Strip.

Furthermore, extremist Israeli settlers carried out dozens of attacks 
against Palestinian villagers and their lands in different parts of the 
West Bank, cut and uprooted more than 340 trees in Palestinian orchards.

Also, at least six Palestinians have been injured as the army continued 
to use excessive force against nonviolent activists, including Israeli 
and International activists, protesting Israel's illegal Annexation Wall 
and its illegal settlements.

One of the wounded is a Palestinian child; three of them were injured in 
Bil'in weekly protest, one Nabi Saleh weekly protest, near Ramallah, and 
one child was injured in Qotna village, near Jerusalem.
