Israel's Summary Executions Continue in Tulkarem.

Three Killed 10 Injured in Tulkarem.

At 3pm yesterday Israeli undercover forces fired into a crowd of civilians in the area near Khodori Technical College, injuring 9 people, 2 of which were critically wounded.

As the crowd fled, the 2 critically injured men were forced to lie face down on the ground. One was Eyze Jabar, 27, who was linked to the Al-Aqsa Brigade and was the apparent target of the attack. The other was Baddeea Kakurah, 26, a sweet shop owner with no political affiliations.

Witnesses reported to the ISM that both men were unarmed and executed by bullets fired into the backs of their heads.

The soldiers then drove around Tulkarem, firing rubber bullets at children who threw stones at them and taking prisoner between 14 and 30 Palestinians.

At 2.15 this morning Israeli soldiers also shot a 20 year old unarmed man in the arm and back while he stood in front of his home in Tulkarem Refugee Camp. The shots were fired from a neighboring house which the soldiers had secretly occupied during the night.

When the ambulance sent to retrieve the man arrived at Tulkarem Hospital it was rear ended by an Israeli Army jeep. The soldiers in the jeep then dismounted and assaulted the driver by punching him in the face repeatedly before forcing him to follow them to their headquarters.

At the headquarters the soldiers beat the man again and threatened to kill him while the wounded man was transferred to an Israeli ambulance which took him to a hospital in Israel.
