Prominent Israeli settler runs over 16-year-old girl, then shoots her dead

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by mcar (a host of the General Discussion forum).

BETHLEHEM (Ma‘an) 22 Nov – A prominent Israeli settler ran over a 16-year-old Palestinian girl and then shot her dead [on Sunday], saying that he believed she intended to carry out a stabbing attack at Huwarra checkpoint in the northern occupied West Bank district of Nablus, Israeli media reported.

The Palestinian military liaison office identified the teenager as Ashraqat Taha Ahmad Qatanani from Nablus, and said they had notified her family of their daughter’s death. Israeli news site Ynet identified the man who ran over and shot Qatanani as Gershon Mesika, the former head of the “Samaria regional council,” which represents Israel’s illegal settlements in the northern West Bank.

After running the girl over with his car and landing in a ditch, Mesika reportedly got out of his car and opened fire on the girl, alongside Israeli forces who also opened fire, Israeli media reported. An Israeli army spokesperson did not immediately respond when asked for comment. No Israelis were reported injured in the alleged attack. - S

1. Disgusting.

 

I would hope he'd spend the rest of his life in prison if they cannot prove his assertions...but he's probably getting a citizenship medal.

12. Has the Israeli media identified Mesika as a terrorist yet?

Because if the roles had been reversed, that word would appear in the headline and a few dozen times in the article.


Another tragic and senseless death.

13. Former settler leader thwarts Palestinian knife attacker

 

A Palestinian woman was run over and shot while attempting to stab an Israeli civilian outside Nablus Sunday morning, Israeli officials and media reports said.

The attempted attack took place at a junction near the Samaria Brigade headquarters in the northern West Bank.

The woman attempted to stab a civilian at the Samaria Junction, the army said.

“Forces and a bystander responded to the immediate threat, shooting the attacker,” an IDF statement read.

The bystander, former Samaria Regional Council head Gershon Mesika, said he rammed his car into the woman after seeing her attempting to stab a girl standing at a bus stop where a number of Israelis were standing.

14. Funny how Mondoweiss doesn't mention the attempted

stabbing of an Israeli civilian as the cause for the Israeli running into her, and how it claims that he (the settler) fired at her when legitimate reporting indicates that it was the IDF. But Mondoweiss never lets facts get in the way of a good anti-semitic story.
