Report: Israel killed 22 Palestinians last month

The international Tadamun (solidarity) society for human rights said in its monthly report that Israel killed 22 Palestinians, all of them from the Gaza Strip, during intensive artillery and aerial attacks last April.

According to its report, the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) kidnapped more than 250 Palestinians, including 30 children, in different occupied Palestinian areas of Jerusalem and the West Bank.

They also kidnapped during raids on Nablus villages especially Awarta village more than 120 Palestinian women, mostly released after interrogation.

Among the women kidnapped during the reporting month was lawyer and human rights activist Suheir Ayoub who was imprisoned on allegation of working as a messenger for Islamic Jihad prisoners and leaders.

Researcher for Tadamun society Ahmed Tubasi condemned Israel’s persistence in committing crimes and violations against human rights in Gaza and the occupied Palestinian territories.

"We are very concerned about the continued violation of human rights in the Palestinian territories and the Palestinians’ right to live like other human beings, and we denounce Israel’s escalating arrest of citizens especially children and women," Tubasi stated in the report.
