Israeli occupation forces shot over 2,600 with live and rubber bullets in October


Israeli forces shot and wounded at least 2,617 Palestinians with live and rubber-coated steel bullets through October, the Palestinian Red Cross said Sunday, as clashes carried on into the new month.

A Red Crescent spokesperson told Ma’an that at least 760 Palestinians were shot with live rounds across the occupied Palestinian territory, while another 1,857 were hit with rubber-coated steel bullets.

He said that a further 5,399 Palestinians were treated for excessive tear gas inhalation during the period, while another 246 were injured in other ways, including assault by Israeli soldiers and burns from tear gas canisters.

The spokesperson said that it brought the total injured during October to 8,262 Palestinians. For most parts of the occupied Palestinian territory, October was also the deadliest month since the Second Intifada, with at least 69 Palestinians killed by Israeli forces.

While 26 were shot dead during clashes, another 40 Palestinians were shot dead after Israel alleges they attempted or carried out attacks on Israelis.

While Palestinians agree that a number of Palestinians were shot dead while carrying out attacks — ultimately claiming 10 Israelis’ lives — footage and witness testimony have raised serious doubts over the Israeli army’s version of events in many of the other cases.

This series of videos were taken in Bethlehem on Oct 29th. This is an example of what Israeli occupation tanks say when patrolling Palestinian neighborhoods.

Is this video we see clashes between Palestinians with stones and fully equipped Israeli occupation forces. The short video shows the moments a charging soldier is struck with a stone. The Palestinian man who threw it is then run over by a military vehicle.

The following video is moments after the scene above, when journalists and medics who converge on the scene are attacked. Several of the journalists and medics are directly pepper-sprayed by Israeli occupation forces.
