Palestinian 'left for 3 hours' under Israeli jeep

June 14, 2015 10:36 P.M. (Updated: June 15, 2015 3:19 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian man who was killed by Israeli forces on Sunday in Kufr Malik village near Ramallah was left under an Israeli military jeep for three hours before he died, an eyewitness said.

Nabil Abd al-Karim recounted the details of the incident saying that Abdullah Iyad Ghuneimat, 22, was heading to his work in a poultry farm when Israeli forces shot him in the back and chased him down as he tried to return home.

The jeep then hit Ghuneimat pushing him into a wall that collapsed on him and caused the jeep to overturn on him as well, Abd al-Karim said.

Soldiers vacated the jeep and left Ghuneimat under it with his back crushed and his leg completely severed, he added.

He was left under the jeep for three hours screaming in pain while gas and oil from the jeep dripped over him and the vehicle crushed his body, the witness added.

After three hours of Israeli forces preventing any assistance or medics to come to his aid, residents of the village attacked Israeli soldiers with their bare hands and managed to lift the jeep from over him, but it was too late as Ghunaimat had already died.

His body was taken in an ambulance to the Palestine Medical Complex.

Thousands participated in his funeral which started from his village’s mosque to its graveyard where he was laid to rest.

Participants in the funeral chanted calls for revenge.

His mother, who broke down after hearing the news and received treatment, said her son was executed by Israeli forces in cold blood.

Earlier, an Israeli army spokeswoman said that during army "activities," a "suspicious man" attempted to throw a Molotov cocktail at Israeli forces.

One of the army vehicles swerved and lost control, hitting the Palestinian on the side of the road, she said, referring to the incident as an accident.

She said Israeli emergency services arrived on the scene to treat "everyone" harmed, although she added that she could not confirm Ghanayim's death as he had been attended to by Palestinian medics.

She said the incident was under investigation.

Israel has lost its morality. The US needs to stop supporting Israel until it starts acting like a civil country.

A bullet in the back means that he was running away from Israeli soldiers, means that he was not a threat to their lives, means that this is murder.

israel is the most murdering human rights abusing country there is. My heart goes out to the family of Abdullah Iyad Ghuneimat. He was a poor man working in a poultry factory. Why did the soldiers murder him! israel is terror.

Israel does not deserve a moderate response. It has earned something else. Is it my imagination or has it been even more defiant of the entire world recently? Hard to tell, I suppose, given its usual habits.

Are we to believe that an innocent man was simply strolling down the road minding his own business when IDF soldiers decided to shoot him in the back without any provocative behavior? On the other hand, throwing a gasoline bomb at an IDF military vehicle can prove to be very provocative behavior.

@stevenjb / usa
Yes steven. That is what you are to believe.
This is repeated behaviour by those those who torment Palestinians in every attempt to chase them off their land. This is calculated behaviour.

Please tell me this isn't true. I can believe that soldiers can get out of hand, but not this surely

I am from Vancouver,Canada and I wanted to say that the gov'ts of Canada and the USA should be condemned for supporting Israeli war crimes and genocide.
Israel shouldn't be recognized by any gov't in the world for these reasons.To hell with the Canadian gov't for recognizing Israel.

Israel is under the impression that by escalating the violence they will back us off. That won't work any longer...For the Young man's death, the burning of two christian churches in holy land, for Blasphemy on the name of Jesus by the Barbarians living on Illegal Land and still building.
