Saheeb Abu Kashef, 16, died succumbed to wounds sustained when Israeli forces shot him on August 3.

16-year-old Palestinian succumbed to his wounds on Saturday night that he had sustained during “The Great March of Return” protests in Khan Younis in the southern besieged Gaza Strip over a month ago.

Medical sources confirmed that 16-year-old Saheeb Abed Al-Salam Abu Kashef succumbed to his wounds at the European Hospital in Gaza City.

Sources pointed out that Saheeb was shot and injured by Israeli forces during protests on August 3, east of Khan Younis.

Meanwhile, mass protests continued on Saturday in various places in the Gaza Strip.

Israeli forces opened fire and threw tear-gas bombs at the Palestinian protesters along the Gaza border, causing dozens of them to suffer from tear-gas inhalation.

Reports also confirmed that Israeli forces fired live ammunition and tear-gas bombs east of Gaza City, injuring two Palestinians.

They were immediately transferred to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Over 170 Palestinians in Gaza have been killed since protests erupted along the fence separating Israel from the besieged strip, on March 30.

WHO Strengthens Trauma Care Services in Gaza.
September 16, 2018

The World Health Organization (WHO) released a report stating that with support from the European Union, it is replenishing stocks of urgently-needed trauma medicines in the besieged Gaza Strip and providing hands-on training for health staff working in frontline Trauma Stabilization Points (TSPs).

Dr. Gerald Rockenschaub, WHO’s Head of Office for Gaza and the West Bank, said in the report that life-saving medicines and medical supplies to treat more than 100,000 people have been delivered to hospitals and TSPs, filling critical gaps before supplies rapidly deplete as a result of increasing numbers of casualties in the ongoing protests known as “The Great March of Return,” which began on March 30.

The report stated:
“The role of health workers at Trauma Stabilization Points is crucial. Health staff in TSPs are usually the first to see wounded patients, and their capacity to resuscitate, stabilize, and treat patients with serious injuries can significantly increase patients’ chances of survival before they are referred to hospital for further medical care.”

The report added:
“More than 18,000 people have been injured from March 30, until the beginning of September 2018, due to the ongoing protests in Gaza. Of the 18,000, more than 8,600 individuals were managed and directly discharged at TSPs, while almost 9,500 referred by TSP health workers to hospitals for specialized care.”

To ensure a comprehensive and coordinated approach to the provision of trauma care in Gaza, WHO has established a dedicated Trauma Working Group with different trauma sub-groups, focusing on areas such as reconstructive surgery and rehabilitation, bring together expertise and knowledge that will ensure quality emergency and trauma care for all injured.

The official PA daily portrays the teenage terrorist who murdered Israeli Ari Fuld on Sunday as a victim of an unprovoked shooting by a settler.

By: By Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik, Palestinian Media Watch

On Sunday, a Palestinian teenager, Khalil Jabarin, stabbed and murdered Israeli Ari Fuld in the parking lot of a supermarket. Before succumbing to his wounds, Fuld, together with another civilian, shot and wounded Jabarin, which led to his capture.

Today, the Palestinian Authority (PA) is portraying terrorist murderer Jabarin as a victim of an unprovoked Israeli shooting. The headline in the official PA daily indicated that he had not even attacked anyone.

The headline says: “The shooting and wounding of the boy Khalil Jabarin and his arrest, claiming that he killed a settler next to ‘Etzion.'”

The report continues to insinuate this, stating that Jabarin “stabbed a settler according to the Israeli occupation’s version,” and even accuses Israel of neglecting the injured terrorist, claiming he was “left bleeding on the ground for more than 20 minutes.”

“The boy Jabarin was wounded by a number of bullets fired by the occupation’s soldiers (sic., by two Israeli civilians, one of whom Jabarin had just stabbed and mortally wounded) next to the ‘[Gush] Etzion’ Junction, and this was after he stabbed a settler according to the Israeli occupation’s version. He was left bleeding on the ground for more than 20 minutes and then was transferred to the hospital. Jabarin is an 11th grade student in a science study track.” [Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 17, 2018]

This is a typical example of the PA’s modus operandi whenever a terrorist is killed or injured while committing a terror attack. The PA routinely describes Israel’s self-defense measures to stop the terrorist as an attack on the Palestinian terrorist who is portrayed as an innocent “victim.” Palestinian Media Watch reported extensively on this PA tactic during the terror wave in 2015/16, when the PA and Fatah claimed that the many terrorists committing stabbing attacks were “innocent” victims.

What one reads or believes, will be more propaganda - more denial, by sources promoting ethnic cleansing of Palestine, same tactics of misinformation, racist cover up, and lack of accountability - as long as one does not want to recognize that there are uncomfortable truths...

believing propaganda, as some do, not knowing, or not willing to see or hear, does not change the reality or facts on the ground - that some are invested on hiding, by hook or by crook..

Israel Military Must Release to Gaza Medical Supplies from Gaza Flotilla.

Petition Text

Please sign our demand that the Israeli military release 114 boxes of medical supplies-sterile gauze and sutures- to the Gaza health system.

Why is this important?

For 22 consecutive Fridays, Palestinians have gone to the border with Israel demanding the end to the horrific Israeli blockade of Gaza. Israeli snipers have wounded by gunfire 6729 including 1140 children, 203 women, 78 journalists and 103 paramedics. Among those wounded, 422 are in serious condition and 69 persons' lower or upper limbs were amputated. Thousands of others suffered tear gas inhalation and sustained bruises. The Gaza health facilities need medical supplies.

Two boats of the 2018 Gaza Freedom Flotilla carried 114 boxes of medical supplies-sterile gauze and sutures-for the Gaza health system. By international law, Israel must deliver them to the Gaza border. One month has passed since the Israeli military hijacked the boats, arrested, imprisoned and deported 34 persons on the boats. While the amount of medical supplies is small compared to the massive need, it is critical to force Israel to abide by international law and let medical supplies into Gaza.
Please sign the petition to put pressure on the Israeli government to deliver the 114 boxes of medical supplies to the Gaza health system.

And call the Israeli Embassy in your country and your Ministry of Foreign Affairs/Department of State demanding the release of the medical supplies.

In the U.S., call the Israeli Embassy at 202-364-5500 and the Department of State at 202-647-4000 and ask for the Office of Israel/Palestine Affairs.
