Two little girls murdered by Israeli soldiers in Jordan valley
NABLUS, — Two little girls were killed Wednesday evening when the vehicle they were riding along with their father and brother was deliberately hit by an Israeli armored jeep in the Jordan Valley area in the West Bank.
Palestinian medical sources said that Jannah, eight years, and Massa, 10, died while their father Imad Faqha and their 11-year-old brother Hussein sustained serious injuries after Israeli soldiers crashed their armored vehicle into the tractor the victims were on board.
Eyewitness reported that the Palestinian family was returning from their agricultural field when Israeli soldiers accelerated their car into the tractor.
For his part, Dr. Ahmed Bahar, the first deputy speaker of the Palestinian legislative council (PLC), strongly denounced the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) for attacking the agricultural tractor in the Jordan Valley and killing the two girls.
In a press release on Wednesday, Dr. Bahar said that what happened was a deliberate crime perpetrated for racist purposes and malicious Zionist intents that do not understand the meaning of humanity or life.
The deputy speaker also deplored the IOF troops for attacking a peaceful march east of Gaza city and killing a teenager participating in the march.
The lawmaker appealed to the international community to necessarily intervene to protect the Palestinian people from the ongoing carnage perpetrated daily by Israel, noting that the current Palestinian situation has turned into hell because of Israel’s relentless violations.
