Early this
morning, Tuesday, 23 September 2014, the Israeli military discovered the hiding
place of and killed Amer Abu Aisha and Marwan Qawasmeh, the two suspects in the
kidnapping and killing of the three Israeli settler youth in June.

The killing
took place on the first floor of a wood factory in the Hai El Sharma
neighborhood near Hebron University after a firefight.  The building has three floors:  the first is a wood factory; the second
contains shops and the third is residential.  Due to the live ammunition, small bombs, and tear gas thrown
into the building by the soldiers, a fire started, which burned one of the two
suspects almost beyond recognition. 
The blasts from the bombs, and the military tractor used to cave in the building also damaged adjoining homes and buildings.

The military
took the bodies to the Israeli DCO at 9:00 a.m.  Families identified them and retrieved them for burial.  According to Muslim religious law, the
bodies must be buried before sundown the same day as the death.

During the
course of the morning people began to gather; clashes between the Israeli soldiers
and Palestinians ensued and soldiers shot at least three people, one in the
chest and one in the head, but no one died.

Following a
12:30 prayer service, Abu Aisha and Qawasmeh were buried in Hebron’s Shuhada
cemetery with thousands of family, friends, and neighbors attending.

Privilege of movement

Basic freedom of movement in Palestine—walking to the grocery store, driving to visit family, or flying internationally—depends on your nationality, race, and religion. As a Palestinian, you are denied these rights as others in your country move freely.
