ABOVE This is the first picture of Uday, 22, who was killed during protests over Israel’s occupation and settlement programme in Palestine. His sister Dania was killed by Israel on her way back from school a month earlier. Gaza remains surrounded by Israel’s military. At least 120 Palestinians have been killed by Israel since October 1.
JERUSALEM Israel has released the body of schoolgirl Hadeel Awaad, 14, who was shot dead by an Israeli policeman on November 22. Her cousin Norhan, 16, who was wounded has been charged with attempted murder. They lived in Qalandia Refugee camp in Ramallah. Hadeel’s brother was killed by Israel during protests two years earlier. Israel says they were attacking a man they thought was an Israeli with scissors. Israel’s occupation of East Jerusalem, West Bank and Gaza is illegal under international law. Israel’s military and armed settlers continue to operate without any international condemnation, whilst Palestinians continue to suffer under the daily humiliation of occupation.
