‘Normalization Made Zionists More Aggressive’

Zionist Troops Shoot, Kill Palestinian, Injure More

RAMALLAH (Dispatches) – Zionist troops have shot and killed a Palestinian man in the occupied West Bank, the Palestinian Health Ministry says, the latest death in a spiral of violence that has rocked the region.
The Health Ministry said 22-year-old Saleh Sabra was killed after being shot in the chest in the flashpoint West Bank city of Nablus, a frequent site of raids by Zionist troops.
The occupying regime said that troops preparing to demolish the home of a Palestinian came under fire and shot back. The regime demolishes the homes of Palestinians in an attempt to terrorize others, a tactic critics say amounts to collective punishment.
Meanwhile, at least three Palestinians sustained injuries after Zionist troops raided the northern West Bank city of Jenin on Tuesday and fired live rounds at local residents.
The Palestinian Ministry of Health said one of the Palestinian victims was shot in the abdomen while the other two were struck in the extremities, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.
They were transported to a hospital in the city, located 42 kilometers (26miles) north of Nablus, to receive medical treatment.
Earlier in the day, a Palestinian youth was shot and injured in the thigh during an army raid on Aqbat Jabr refugee camp in Ariha. He was taken to the hospital.
The death comes after more than a year of relentless violence in the West Bank, where the Zionist troops has been conducting near-nightly raids. It also follows a deadly five-day burst of fighting between regime troops and Palestinian resistance fighters in the Gaza Strip.
More than 250 Palestinians have been killed since the regime launched the West Bank raids in March of last year, with 112 of those killed just this year according to a tally by The Associated Press. During the Gaza fighting last week, 33 Palestinians were killed.
Tensions are expected to surge again later this week, when radical Zionists hold an annual march through the main Palestinian thoroughfare in Al-Quds’s Old City. The march, which marks the regime’s occupation of east Al-Quds in the 1967 Mideast war, often gets rowdy, with participants chanting slurs against Arabs. The Palestinians see the gathering as provocative.
A new survey shows that the majority of Palestinians are adamantly opposed to the U.S.-sponsored normalization agreements between the Zionist regime and some Arab countries, saying the so-called Abraham Accords have made the occupying regime more aggressive.
According to the poll, conducted by Arab News-YouGov, 64 percent of the respondents opposed the normalization deals.
Zionist prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu signed the so-called Abraham Accords with Emirati Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Bahrain’s Foreign Minister Abdullatif Al Zayani during an official ceremony hosted by former U.S. president Donald Trump at the White House in September 2020.
The normalization deals, to which Sudan and Morocco later joined, have sparked widespread condemnations from the Palestinians as well as nations and human rights advocates across the globe, especially within the Muslim world.
Palestinians slammed the deals as a treacherous “stab in the back” and a betrayal of their cause against the decades-long Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories.
