CPTnet5 October 2015AL-KHALIL (HEBRON): CPT-Palestine September Newsletter 2015 Newsletter: September 2015Hadil’s Death, School Snapshot, Festivals Collide, Power & Privilege View this email in your browser The day after Hadil was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers, the Hebron community marches to her funeral in public lamentation. Hadil: Palestinian teenager fatally shot in Hebron Hadil (18) was shot dead by Israeli forces at Shuhada checkpoint in occupied Hebron on 22 September. Hadil was a member of a Palestinian family from the H1 region of Hebron, and was in her first year as a student at Hebron University. It was as she was passing through one of the many checkpoints of occupation in H2 Hebron – checkpoints that divide one Palestinian neighborhood from another – that Hadil was so brutally killed. Numerous reports state that Hadil ‘attempted to stab a soldier’. The alleged attempted stabbing is refuted by all eye witnesses, and the presence of a knife appears to be disputed. Eyewitnesses from human rights organizations report that one soldier opened fire, shooting her in the leg, before other soldiers encircled her and joined in the fatal shooting. Hadil was left to bleed on the pavement for half an hour before Israeli soldiers would allow her to be taken away by the ambulance. CPT condemns this horrific and fatal act of violence. How can this act of violence be understood? Regardless of ‘understanding’ this act, the awful truth remains; an 18-year-old girl has been tragically killed by an occupying army in her home city. We continue to pray, hope, and act for change of this fatal reality.For a just peace for all Palestinians so violently denied their humanity by this dehumanizing and brutal occupation.For Hadil’s family.For Hadil.
