Nazi forces have continued to commit crimes, inflicting civilian casualties.

During the reporting period, Nazi forces killed a Palestinian civilian and wounded 10 others, including a child and a young woman. Nine of them were wounded in the West while the young woman was wounded at Qalendia checkpoint, north of occupied Jerusalem. In the Gaza Strip, Nazi forces continue to target Palestinian fishermen and chase them in the Sea.

In the West Bank, on 27 July 2016, Nazi forces killed Mohammed Jubarah al-Faqih (29) from Dura, south of Hebron.  The aforementioned was killed when a large force of Nazi soldiers moved into Sorif village, northwest of Hebron, and surrounded a 3-storey house belonging to al-Heeh Family.  The Nazi soldiers ordered al-Faqih, who was holed up in that house, to surrender but he refused so.  An armed clash then broke out between al-Faqih and the soldiers, who heavily opened fire from all sides at him.

They also fired shoulder-fired missiles at the house in addition to destroying parts of it by their vehicles. Due to the shelling and levelling, the house was completely destroyed.  It should be mentioned that Nazi forces accused al-Faqih of being involved in a shooting attack at a settlers’ car and killed one of them
