People carry the body of 16-year-old Sanad Abu Atiya, who was shot and
killed by Israeli forces as he was attempting to render aid to another shot
Palestinian, during his funeral in the occupied West Bank city of Jenin on
31 March 2022.

Three Palestinians were killed by Israeli fire in separate incidents on
Thursday morning in the occupied West Bank, including a child.

Israeli occupation forces invaded Jenin refugee camp to conduct arrests
supposedly in connection with Tuesday’s incident near Tel Aviv where a
Palestinian from the Jenin area killed
five people before he was fatally shot.

Tel Aviv daily *Haaretz* reported
that the raid on Jenin refugee camp was carried out in part by Duvdevan, an
elite Israeli military death squad whose members often disguise themselves
as Palestinians in order to carry out extrajudicial executions

Israeli forces shot and killed two Palestinians in the camp.

An Israeli soldier exited the military vehicle, took up a shooting
position, and fired 15 rounds of live ammunition.

Yazid al-Saadi, 22, was shot in the back of the head.

As 16-year-old Sanad Muhammad Khalil Abu Atiya was approaching him to
render aid, he was fatally shot in the chest, according
to a field investigation by Defense for Children International-Palestine.

Abu Atiya’s killing brings to five the number of Palestinian children
killed by Israel since the beginning of the year.

Al-Saadi’s picture was circulated by local media:

A funeral procession was held for them in the camp on Thursday:

Israeli occupation forces, according to the ministry, also shot at least 14
Palestinians with live ammunition, injuring three seriously.

They also attacked a public hospital in Jenin with tear gas.

Medical staff suffered breathing difficulties and there was panic in the
nursery, pediatrics and surgery departments, the Palestinian health
ministry said. Babies had to be evacuated

Meanwhile, a Palestinian man reportedly stabbed an Israeli settler using a
screwdriver on a bus near the Efrat settlement, south of the occupied West
Bank city of Bethlehem.

Nidal Juma Jaafreh, 30, was shot and killed by an Israeli civilian on the
bus. His picture was shared on social media:

The settler is in serious but stable condition, according
to *Haaretz*.

This comes as Prime Minister Naftali Bennett encouraged Israeli citizens to
carry weapons.

“What is expected of you, citizens of Israel? Alertness and
responsibility,” he said <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPt3awMVb_Y> in a
video address on Wednesday.

“Whoever has a license to carry a weapon, this is the time to carry it.”

Israel’s routine killings of Palestinians pass largely without comment or
action from the so-called international community. Israel has already
killed more than two dozen Palestinians since the start of the year.

But as usual, it is only when the violence engulfs Israelis that a sense of
escalation and crisis prevails.

That is what has happened amid a string of Palestinian acts of violence
against Israelis inside Israel and in the occupied West Bank this month.

Now, the Israeli military is preparing for the possibility of large-scale
confrontations with Palestinians during Ramadan.

May will mark the first anniversary of last year’s uprising across historic
Palestine, when the Israeli military carried out an 11-day killing spree
<https://electronicintifada.net/tags/may-2021-attack-gaza> in the besieged
Gaza Strip and across the occupied West Bank.

In Gaza alone, more than 250 Palestinians were killed, including at least
67 children. Israel obliterated
entire families in their homes.

offensive that occurred between May 10 and 21, 2021.

On Wednesday, Israel deployed
large numbers of additional soldiers throughout the occupied West Bank and
around the Gaza Strip.

In a rare move, soldiers will also reinforce Israeli police operations
inside Israel, *Haaretz* said.

Israeli police have requested
that entry to the Al-Aqsa mosque compound in occupied East Jerusalem during
Ramadan be restricted to Palestinians over 60 years of age. Israeli
military policy recommends men 45 years and over be allowed to enter.

Any further tightening of Israel’s already draconian restrictions on
Palestinians’ freedom of movement and worship during Ramadan is likely to
be an additional source of tension and provocation.

As if to pour gasoline on the fire, Israeli occupation forces allowed
Itamar Ben-Gvir, an extreme-right Israeli lawmaker, to enter
the al-Aqsa mosque compound on Thursday.

Settler provocateurs like Ben-Gvir often go to the compound on the pretext
that it is a Jewish religious duty.

However, since <https://www.haaretz.com/1.4706117> Israel occupied East
Jerusalem in 1967, its top rabbis have consistently ruled that Jews should
not enter the area, which Jews call Temple Mount, both for religious reasons
and to avoid

However, more recently the Israeli government has been allowing
settler extremists whose goal is to destroy and replace the al-Aqsa mosque
with a Jewish temple to go there and pray.

Ben-Gvir was a central figure in settler provocations in the Sheikh Jarrah
neighborhood of East Jerusalem last year that stoked the full-scale

Even in Israeli terms he is a notorious racist.

One of Ben-Gvir’s heroes
is Baruch Goldstein, the American Jewish settler who murdered 29
Palestinian men and boys during Ramadan prayers in Hebron’s Ibrahimi mosque
in February 1994.
