by Israeli military jeep
outside school in Jenin-area village
30 September 2009An Israeli army jeep hit and killed a 17-year-old Palestinian in the occupied West Bank, in the Jenin-area village. a Palestinian security official and the Israeli military said.
The Palestinian official said the vehicle deliberately ran down the teenager.
At around 11am, Foad Mahmoud Naiyf Turkman, 17 years of age, was run over by a military jeep as he was standing outside of his high school.
Witnesses say that the students had finished school and were gathered outside Izz ad-Din al-Qassam high school in Yabad village, west of Jenin.
According to the uncle of Turkman, Mohammad Naiyf, who is a teacher in the school and witnessed the event,
"The jeep was driving fast towards a group of students. The jeep ran over [Turkman's] body with all four wheels, and then backed up and drove over him again. Then the soldiers wouldn't allow us to get Foad for about 15 minutes."
Turkman was taken to Jenin hospital and died an hour later from his injuries.
Yabad village is surrounded by several illegal settlements to the west and south; Mevo Dotan, Hermesh, Rehan, Shaqed, and Hinnanit. The Separation Wall is located west of Yabad village. Road 585, located south of Yabad is used primarily for military vehicles.
The violence came at a time of rising tensions after Israeli police attack on Palestinian worshipers, after crowds of Jews attempted to enter Al-Aqsa mosque in Quds.
I suppose it would be tasteless if I suggested/joked that perhaps some wealthy Israeli needed a heart? Oops, it slipped out no matter. Neither is running down a boy fresh out of school for sport or hunting or sheer maliciousness or any other reason!.
IT WOULD BE SO EASY TO HATE THESE THINGS IN HUMAN FORM! THEY MAKE IT SO EASY BUT NOPE, THEY ARE NOT WORTH SINKING TO BELOW CESSPOOL LEVELS.
