12 Palestinians Killed, Scores Injured and Abducted, Homes Demolished by Israeli Occupation Soldiers

"ßóÊóÈúäóÇ Úóáóìٰ Èóäöí ÅöÓúÑóÇÆöíáó Ãóäøóåõ ãóä ÞóÊóáó äóÝúÓðÇ ÈöÛóíúÑö äóÝúÓò Ãóæú ÝóÓóÇÏò Ýöí ÇáúÃóÑúÖö ÝóßóÃóäøóãóÇ ÞóÊóáó ÇáäøóÇÓó ÌóãöíÚðÇ" (ÇáãÇÆÏÉõ ¡ 5: 32).
"We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul, unless for a soul, or for corruption in the land, it is as if he had killed humankind entirely" (The Holy Quran, Al-Ma-ida, 5: 32).
While brutal force has been used to create Zionist Israel and sustain it thus far, Zionist claims to Palestine are false. Actually, from the five thousand years of known written history, there has been a continuous Palestinian-Canaanite presence in the Holy Land. Despite the Zionist false claims, the ancient Israelites ruled part of the land for only 85 years (during the reign of David, Solomon, and Solomon's son).
After that, the Egyptians conquered Palestine-Canaan in 925 BC, followed by Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Greeks, and Romans, before the Arab Muslim rule, starting from 636 AD.
By the Time Jesus started his mission, the three population groups of Canaanites, Palestinians, and Israelites were melted together in religion and language. Most of them became Christians when Constantine converted in 313 AD. Then, most of them became Muslims in the 7th and 8th centuries AD.
So, Palestinian Muslims, Christians, and Jews are the ones who have the right to claim descent from ancient Israelites, Palestinians, and Canaanites, not Zionists from other continents.
The following news stories are just examples of the Israeli occupation government abuse, mistreatment, and violations of Palestinian human rights, on daily basis.More detailed news stories can be found at the following sources:

Israeli Occupation Army To Demolish Home Of Slain Palestinian
IMEMC, NOV 10, 2022
On Wednesday evening, the Israeli occupation army said it decided to demolish the home of a Palestinian who was killed after killing a soldier and wounding a guard in Maale Adumim illegal colony near occupied Jerusalem in the West Bank.
The army’s decision did not include a specific date or timeframe for the demolition of the family home of Odai Kamal Tamimi, 22, and the method of demolition, such as bulldozing the property or the use of explosives to level it.
The decision allows the family to file an appeal, however, in numerous similar cases, the appeals have all been denied, and the emotions were carried out; in many cases, the demolitions were conducted despite pending appeals and court orders.
Odai, from the Shu’fat refugee camp in Jerusalem, was killed on October 19th, following an exchange of fire with Israeli soldiers and armed guards in Maale Adumim, and on October 8th, he exchanged fire with soldiers and armed guards at the Shu’fat refugee camp, killing one soldier and wounding a guard.
After the October 8th shooting, the Israeli army imposed a strict siege on the Shu’fat refugee camp and Anata nearby town and prevented the Palestinians from entering or leaving the two areas, leading to massive ongoing protests, and lifted the siege five days later.
Israel’s policy of home demolitions is an act of illegal collective punishment, targeting entire families, in direct violation of International Law. Israel also does not demolish the homes of Israelis, especially colonialist settlers, who are responsible for killing or seriously wounding Palestinians in the occupied territories.
