Palestinian youth shot dead by Israeli army a meter away

Mustafa Nimr, who was shot dead by policemen in the Shoafat refugee camp last month, was shot from around a meter away, according to a Tuesday report by Channel 10 News.

According to the report, Nimr was hit by two bullets when he was sitting in a car driven by his relative Ali Nimr.

According to the indictment against Ali Nimr, as he approached the checkpoint, police flagged them down with a flashlight and signaled that the road was closed and that they should turn back, but instead Ali accelerated.

Police fired sponge-tipped bullets at the car, but Ali sped up and rammed through the checkpoint. Ali was charged with causing Mustafa’s death, even though it was police gunfire that killed Mustafa and wounded Ali as well.

During a hearing in Ali Nimr’s case, the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court wrote that an examination of Mustafa’s body showed he’d been shot in the head by two bullets “from what looks like a meter away.”

Human rights groups have often sounded the alarm over the extra-judicial murder of Palestinian anti-occupation youth by the Israeli occupation army, often from a very close range.

Video of the Week Israel votes to cut off power to Gaza.

Video: Allegations have come forth that Mahmoud Abbas (self proclaimed Palestinian "president") will - on top of asking israel to cut Gaza's power to one hour per day (just approved)now declare Gaza a rebel zone! This (if true) will mean the cutting of all aid to Gaza, the shut down of all bank accounts, stopping of all entry/exit and the international arrest warrants of Hamas officials... Calls for war have already been shouted from the rooftops with cuts to Gaza salaries by the PA, restrictions on diesel fuel (due to the PA refusing to pay), the electricity being cut down again and again (causing various problems for life in Gaza) but now it seems like the final nails are being ever so violently hammered into the coffin. If this rumour is true then conflict with Hamas is inevitable and "israel" will have the perfect excuse to massacre innocents in Gaza due to having a legal means to arrest Hamas members (who will not just hand themselves in obviously). Mahmoud Abbas is ready and willing to collectively punish the entire population of 2 million (mostly children) in the Gaza Strip in order to gain more power and to please his own oppressors. If the aid is stopped, the 80+ percent of Gazans reliant on international food aid will starve, 97% of the water in Gaza is also undrinkable, so with none coming in what's the alternative? The current conditions in Gaza would make any sane person cry and feel sick to the pit of their stomach and the so called president of Palestine is dancing around in his expensive suits licking the feet of his people's oppressors!!! Mahmoud Abbas has to go! This is disgusting! #SAVEGAZA
