BREAKING: #Israeli forces have #shot dead a #Palestinian in the occupied West Bank after what the army called an “attempted ramming attack”, but the Palestinian authorities have accused Israeli police of intentionally killing the man, identified as Muhammad Ali Hussein Awad. Image
“The Israeli police deliberately shot Awad, with the aim of killing him, after his vehicle collided with a police vehicle in a traffic accident,” the Palestinian foreign ministry said Saturday.
The 36-year-old from the West Bank town of Beit Ijza, near Jerusalem, was a “defenceless Palestinian” who was not “posing any danger”, the ministry added.

The #Israeli military investigated the Israeli military and found that the Israeli military did nothing wrong.

That’s a quick summary of an internal army inquiry into the killing of prominent Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh.

🧵
She was gunned down while covering Israeli raids in Jenin in the Israeli occupied West Bank in May.

The military concluded she was likely to have been unintentionally shot by an Israeli soldier but was not deliberately targeted.

Case closed, they say. No further questions.
It’s hardly the first time we’ve seen something like this.

The Israeli military has a long track record of whitewashing grave violations, and victims of Israeli abuses have faced a wall of impunity for years.

Ground realities continue to shift the #Israeli-#Palestinian conflict away from the two-state solution that the #EU has long pursued.

The 🇪🇺 badly needs to update its approach.

[Thread] 🧵👇
crisisgroup.org/middle-east-no…
Events in 2021 put Europe’s outdated policy in sharp relief:

The outbreak of violence, including the 11-day #Gaza war, showed how volatile the conflict remains.

Meanwhile, #Israel rejects a negotiated two-state solution & Palestinian leader #Abbas cancelled overdue elections.
Europe blindly hews to its modus operandi: bolstering a faltering #Palestinian Authority against the Islamist group #Hamas, while shying away from serious efforts to encourage change in #Israeli policy.

Cease-fire in #Gaza holding and #Israel submitted to the first condition imposed by the Islamic Jihad: Karm abu Salm Crossing is open this morning and fuel is supplied to #Gaza's electric power and hospital following a long siege.

#SlavaGaza
After 55 hours of fighting following the initial aggression imposed by #Israel, the "strongest country in the ME" is reduced to fighting one simple Palestinian organisation (Islamic Jihad) under siege, to beg for a cease-fire, knocking the doors of #Egypt, #Qatar & the #UN.
#Israel failed to eliminate or cripple the sieged Palestinian Islamic Jihad that launched missiles and rockets against 58 settlements, including Tel Aviv. #Israeli should ask their political warmonger leaders: This is the life they are offering to boost their party's election?

32 Palestinians were killed, of which 6 children and 210 were wounded by #Israel's bombing of #Gaza following the Israeli initial beginning of the round of violence, assassinating Tayseer al-Jaabari.
Gaza Electric power plant has ceased working and hospitals may stop in 72 hours.
#Israel closed the two crossing into #Gaza, Karm Abu Salem and Beit Hanoun, imposing a siege on the city which could push Hamas to join the fight, overtly, initiated by #Israel.
#Israel is offering the possibility to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad to prove that it is equal to #Hamas in #Gaza in confronting the Israeli army, conducting and leading the highly organised retaliation against many Israeli settlements and cities.

Significant statement from caretaker PM @yairlapid: "Two-state solution is a strong guarantee for a democratic state of #Israel with a #Jewish majority."
Interesting moment during the @JoeBiden-@yairlapid presser in #Jerusalem when #Saudi news outlet @AlArabiya correspondent asked @POTUS what the #US is offering #Gulf states on #Iran's malign activity in region, and Lapid on where #Israel disagreed with Washington on Iran policy.

On Monday, the @UN Security Council will address the implementation of #SCR2334, with @UNSCO_MEPP presenting the biannual implementation report. In the lead-up to the debate, @NRC_Norway briefed most Council Members; here is what I had stressed:
The resolution demanded that #Israel immediately and completely cease all
settlement activities in occupied #Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem,
and that it fully respects all of its legal obligations, including under the Fourth Geneva Convention #IHL.
In blatant disregard of the authoritative guidance of the #UNSC and peremptory norms of international law, consecutive #Israeli governments established 279 settlements, transferring 800K of its nationals to the territory of #Palestine; 1 out of 10 Israelis is now a settler.

Israeli officials believe American counterparts talked to NYT timesofisrael.com/us-leak-finger… via @TimesofIsrael
This US leak to NYT alleging #Israeli responsibility for an attack on #Iran is a repeat of petulant #Obama leaks that signaled to Ayatollahs that US had no role.
#Israel just went on alert, suspecting Iran feels it must retaliate.

US leak of Israeli responsibility serves to tell #Iran that the hit was not a repeat of the assassination of Qasem Soleimani done by Trump Admin.

#Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz says no approach for a joint investigation was made to #Palestinian authorities till after it was already announced to journalists as part of PR scramble around the killing of Shireen Abu Akleh. Click image to see whole text. Image
Israel has claimed that it is 'probable' or 'likely' or 'possible' that the bullet that killed Abu Akleh was fired by a Palestinian. Everything is 'possible' until we know more, but these claims are to stall in the hope that attention dies down before evidence can be produced.
Deliberate killing or not, Israel hates @AJEnglish as the only mainstream global channel that reports regularly and truthfully about the abuses Palestinians suffer. Remember how Israel destroyed Al-Jazeera's Gaza offices. aljazeera.com/news/2021/5/15…
