Palestine in Pictures: October 2020

Israeli forces killed two Palestinians in the occupied West Bank during October.

Soldiers shot and killed Samir Hamidi, 28, near the northern West Bank city of Tulkarm on 5 October. The military claimed that Hamidi was among a group throwing Molotov cocktails at soldiers near a checkpoint.

Hamidi is the fifth Palestinian – among them two children – killed this year for allegedly handling Molotov cocktails.

During 2018, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights stated in the context of Gaza’s Great March of Return that throwing Molotov cocktails does “not appear to constitute the imminent threat to life or deadly injury which could justify the use of lethal force.”
