International Law and Geneva Conventions are trampled upon by the criminal Jewish entity — so-called Israel, while nearly all nations do nothing to force them to comply. I have abridged the following. (r.a. note)
PRESS TV Posted Tues., Oct.06, 2015
On Sunday, the PRCS declared a level-three state of emergency in the West Bank and East al-Quds, calling on the international community to take necessary steps and to force Israel to comply with international law.
A 13-year-old Palestinian teenage boy, identified as Abed al-Rahman Shadi Obeidallah, was shot by Israeli forces during clashes in the Aida refugee camp in Bethlehem on Monday.
He was taken to the Beit Jala hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly afterward due to the severity of the gunshot wound near his heart.
In a statement on Monday, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas slammed the Tel Aviv regime for the escalation of tensions. The statement from Abbas’ office said Israel has an interest “in dragging things into a cycle of violence” due to the turmoil in the al-Aqsa Mosque compound.
On Sunday morning, Israeli police officers shot dead a Palestinian teenager, identified as Fadi Samir Mustafa Alloun, near the Damascus Gate of the al-Aqsa Mosque compound, claiming that he had attempted to stab an Israeli settler with a knife, according to the Palestinian Ma’an news agency.
There are reports that Israeli settlers kicked Alloun’s body later on, and dragged it along the street.
Also on Sunday night, another teenager was killed during clashes in the occupied northern West Bank city of Tulkarm, located about 15 kilometers (9.3 miles) west of Nablus.
Israeli forces and Palestinians have been clashing at the al-Aqsa Mosque compound for weeks now.
‘Morally bankrupt approach’
Meanwhile, in an exclusive interview with Press TV’s website on Tuesday, Richard Silverstesin, a journalist and blogger, described the escalating tensions between Palestinians and Israelis in al-Quds as “very alarming.”
He stressed that Israel’s suppression of Palestinian protests rather than addressing them is simply exacerbating the situation.
“Israel’s approach to this issue will fail and the murder of Palestinians is a morally bankrupt approach… The rights of Palestinians to return to their own nation must be recognized, and the end of occupation must happen.”
“Without satisfying these elementary demands of Palestinians, this will go on forever until the international community intervenes in some meaningful way to force Israel to adhere to a reasonable settlement,” he said.
