  • Anger in West Bank after man, 58, is shot on his way home from morning prayers

RAMALLAH, West Bank: There was growing outrage in the occupied West Bank on Friday after Israeli troops killed another unarmed Palestinian man.

Saleh Sawafta, 58, was returning from dawn prayers at a mosque near his home in Tubas when he was shot in the head. Doctors fought to save his life, but Sawafta died from “critical wounds.”

The victim, who had been preparing for his daughter’s wedding next week — was not involved in previous clashes with Israeli forces and was not a target for arrest.

His death brought the number of Palestinians killed by the Israeli army since the beginning of the year to 135.

Hundreds of people attended Sawafta’s funeral on Friday afternoon as anger spread in the city.

How Israel’s ‘terror’ lies backfired

Tubas Governor Maj. Gen. Younis Al-Assi accused the Israeli army of using “excessive and unjustified force” against Palestinian citizens, and of shooting to kill.

He told Arab News that the Israeli army’s policy of killing, wounding and arresting Palestinian citizens was the main contributor to the “industry of terrorism,” and influenced young people to seek revenge for the deaths and assaults.

Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammed Shtayyeh said that the armed forces of the Israeli occupation would continue their “terrorism” unless the international community stopped displaying double standards over international law.

“As long as they can act with impunity, the crime continues in the absence of punishment. Children, women and the elderly are victims of the terror of the occupation in every city, village and camp,” the prime minister said.

The Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Sawafta’s killing was “part of a series of daily crimes committed by the Israeli occupation forces against Palestinian citizens,” and said the army was acting on instructions from Israeli politicians.

    ISLAMIC TEACHING SHOULD BE REFORMED, OTHERWISE THERE IS NO PEACE!!

    MUSLIM IRAN, HAMAS, HESBULLAH’S DOCTRINE
    QS.7:166. We said to him: “Be you despicable monkeys. And [remember] when your Lord told them that He would send them [the Jews] until the Day of Resurrection those who would inflict the worst punishment on them.
    Q.7:166

    EXPEL ALL JEWS
    Sahih Muslim 4366—”I will expel the Jews and Christians from the Arabian Peninsula and will leave no one but Muslims

    JEWS AND CHRISTIANS ARE WORST BAD HUMANS
    Verily the disbelievers, namely the people of the Book and the polytheists [will enter] the Hell of Hell; they stay in it. They are the worst creatures. (Q.98:6)

    That is why Muslims kill Jews and Jews kill Muslim Hamas and Muslim Iran.

    GOD SAY!
    Love all people and pray to those who persecute you and love your enemy as you love your self. WOOOWW.

    I love this teaching!❤️❤️❤️
