UN Condemns Israeli Use of Lethal force against Palestinians

Gaza,(DRAH.ps)-- The UN on Friday called on Israel to conduct an immediate and complete investigation into all incidents in which the use of force led to the death or injury of Palestinian citizens in the occupied territories and the Gaza Strip.

 “Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Nickolay Mladenov, has expressed his concern at the continuing clashes between Palestinians and the Israeli security forces in the occupied West Bank and Gaza, including the two teenagers who were killed [on Thursday],” Stephane Dujarric, spokesman for the secretary-general, told journalists at the UN headquarters in New York.

 “All incidents in which the use of force has resulted in death or injury must be promptly and thoroughly investigated,” he said.

 Two Palestinian teenagers were cold-bloodedly shot and killed by Israeli soldiers on Thursday during angry protests against the US recognition of Occupied Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

 A Palestinian teen from the Gaza Strip was killed east of the Bureij refugee camp after a live round was fired into his chest. Three other Palestinians were wounded, one critically.

 In the West Bank village of Iraq Burin, south of Nablus, a 16-year-old boy died in hospital after he was shot by an Israeli soldier, without firing warning shots.
