The European Union calls for an investigation into the civilian casualties in the West Bank

On Friday, the European Union called for an investigation into civilian casualties in the West Bank and for ensuring accountability.

In a tweet published by the Jerusalem office on Twitter, the Union said, “Israeli forces have killed 10 Palestinians in the last 72 hours only, in what appears to be an excessive use of lethal force.”

The union expressed its “grave concern about the escalating level of violence in the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem,” noting that “2022 is the bloodiest year since 2006.”

Earlier Friday, a video clip of an Israeli soldier shooting a Palestinian from point-blank range sparked widespread domestic and international condemnation.

A video clip of the incident, taken by a Palestinian and circulated on social networks, and seen by Anadolu Agency, shows an Israeli soldier scrambling with a Palestinian who is trying to escape from him, as the soldier fired from zero distance at the Palestinian who was lying on the ground.

The Israeli Broadcasting Authority said, earlier today, that Israeli soldiers “opened fire on the Palestinian in Hawara (town) after he stabbed two Israeli soldiers.”

It added that the two soldiers were “slightly wounded after being stabbed,” without mentioning the fate of the Palestinian.

For its part, the Palestinian Red Crescent Society said in a statement earlier today, a copy of which Anadolu Agency received, that the Israeli army “prevented its ambulance from reaching the injured person.”

She added, “A person was shot in (the town of) Huwara, and the Red Crescent ambulance was at the site, and the occupation army prevented it from approaching the injured person.”

Separate areas of the West Bank witness weekly activities rejecting settlement on the contact lines with the Israeli army, which disperses them and pursues demonstrators inside their villages and towns.
