1 Sep 2018 – Israel’s occupation forces killed 19 Palestinians, including four children, and wounded 1,600 during August, Quds Press reported on Friday [31 Aug]. The killings took place in the occupied West Bank, Gaza Strip and Jerusalem.

According to a report issued by the PLO’s Abdullah Al-Hourani Centre for Documentation and Studies, 17 Palestinians were killed in Gaza while they were taking part in the Great March of Return protests, one was killed in Israel itself and the other was killed in the West Bank.

Those who were wounded, it revealed, were targeted during the Gaza protests as well as the confrontations between unarmed Palestinians and heavily-armed Israeli forces in the West Bank.

Around 400 Palestinians were arrested by Israel last month, most of them in the West Bank. The Israelis also demolished 31 Palestinian-owned buildings and issued demolition orders for 39 others.

Meanwhile, the occupation authorities approved building permits for more than 1,000 housing units on illegal Jewish settlement and expropriated hundreds of dunams of Palestinian land.

The PLO report also documented dozens of attacks on Palestinians and their properties in the occupied West Bank by Israeli settlers. Three incidents involved cars being used as rams, and more than 600 olive and fruit trees were destroyed.
