Video: Undercover Israeli soldiers kill one, arrest one inside Hebron hospital

Early Wednesday morning, an undercover Israeli special forces unit disguised as Palestinian civilians accompanying a pregnant woman inside a Hebron hospital killed one man and arrested another while holding doctors at gunpoint. The arrested man, Azzam al-Shalaldeh, 22, is reportedly suspected of attacking an Israeli weeks ago.

Security camera footage from the al-Ahli hospital published by local media shows a group of officers with faux beards and mustaches, and traditional Palestinian scarves entering the medical facility shortly before 3:oo am.

They rush past a reception desk in the surgical ward into a treatment room where Azzam al-Shalaldeh was recovering from injuries sustained during clashes with the Israeli army outside of Hebron 20 days ago. The Israeli forces then arrested Shalaldeh, during which Israeli forces shot and killed his cousin Abdullah al-Shalaldah, 27.

Palestine Today reported Israeli forces shot al-Shalaldah four times in the chest and head, with a weapon that was fixed with a silencer.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health released a statement condemning the operation inside of the medical facility, stating 21 Israeli undercover officers participated.

Immediately following the shooting the Israeli forces were filmed exiting the hospital holding handguns. Staff at al-Ahli said the identity of the woman who entered with the Israeli officers is unknown.

“A hospital should be the safest place even in times of war, yet they have penetrated the hospital, arrested someone and murdered someone in it,” the director of the al-Ahli medical complex Dr. Jihad Shawour said to Mondoweiss, describing the incursion as “an ugly and disrespectful manner to enter the hospital.”

“We are used to getting arrested in various places and we have seen this scenario playing out before,” said Shawour, making a reference to another Palestinian arrested from a hospital bed by Israeli security forces in Nablus two weeks ago on similar suspicions of attacking an Israeli, “however this is the first time there has been a murder in the hospital.”

“So now the Palestinians are being killed in the road, the mosque, the church, the school and now the hospital,” Shawour added.

Palestinian parliament member Qais Abdel Karim called the incident a “double heinous crime” and said Israeli forces had “executed” al-Shalaldah.

    Amnesty International:

    The killing of a 28-year-old Palestinian man by Israeli forces during a raid on al-Ahli hospital in Hebron in the early hours of Thursday morning may amount to an extrajudicial execution, Amnesty International said today.

    “The fact that Abdullah Shalaldah was shot in the head and upper body suggests this was an extrajudicial execution, adding to a disturbing pattern of similar recent incidents by Israeli forces in the West Bank which warrant urgent investigation,” said Philip Luther, Director of the Middle East and North Africa Programme at Amnesty International.

    “Israeli forces must immediately cease their use of intentional lethal force against people who are not posing an imminent threat to life.”

    This made the main TV station in Ireland.It included the video showing the most moral army cowards dressed as Arabs and carrying out just one more war crime.

    A Palestinian was interviewed and managed to mention that this is a war crime.I am not sure the average viewer will see it for what it is and not as another Entebbe type heroic op by those brave and daring Jews.

      amigo, CBN has both average viewers and below-average viewers, but here goes:

      Christian Broadcasting Network. JERUSALEM, Israel — Israel’s crackdown on Palestinian terrorists continued this week, with the dramatic overnight arrest of a suspected terrorist Thursday in his hospital room in Hebron.

      The undercover unit, made up of IDF, Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) and Border Police officers, gained access to Azzam Shadallah’s room disguised as an Arab family bringing a pregnant woman feigning labor.

      The soldiers entered the room, arresting the suspect and shooting and killing his cousin, Abdallah Azzam Shaldallah, 28, when he attacked them, the Shin Bet later said.

        They intentionally omitted that he had no weapon to attack them with and we wouldn,t want the viewers to think these brave heroes go around shooting unarmed civilians who are just trying to defend themselves.

      • diasp0ra on November 12, 2015, 3:23 pm

        Interesting how they never note that he was shot directly in the head. Why do they quote the Shin Bet and not the Palestinians in the room who insisted that he had just finished Wudhu for prayer and entered back into the room without attacking anyone.

        They probably got startled and shot him. Even if he DID attack them, he was unarmed, and they were literally over 20 heavily armed military personnel.

        No matter how you spin it, this was an execution.

      • amigo on November 12, 2015, 4:48 pm

        I was wondering the same. It seems pretty clear that the occupation authorities were tipped off by an informer. You would think it would be fairly easy to work out who he/she was, since presumably only a few people would have that sort of information.

        Stand by for crocodile tears from the Zionists should anything happen to the one class of occupied people who they like – collaborators.

    If there was ever any doubt about the cowardice of the IDF, here’s the proof:
    Apparently at least two dozens IDF soldiers (disguised as Arabs) are needed to arrest ONE Palestinian – wounded and harmless, lying in a hospital bed. And for good measure, shooting and killing his cousin (unarmed) as he emerged from the bathroom. Of course, they are already saying he ‘attacked’ them! Sure, an unarmed guy attacking a dozen fully armed Israeli soldiers … please!
    One has to wonder what the IDF would do if confronted by a REAL enemy army.

      True to form, they’d lobby the USA to fight that battle and the media would parrot that the Jewish people are at risk of extinction, so it’s a battle that must be fought.

      Israel is only successful at air strike ops, not a ground wars with a real army. Their success is when they are shooting men with make shift grenades and their children and claiming they are terrorists.

      And, what ever happened to the underground Hamas ‘control centers’ deep within the Gaza hospitals?

      The ones where Israel in 2014 had to destroy more than 7+ hospitals because of the supposed Hamas operations centers. Do we get to see a picture of the remains of this operation center? Seems like that was complete propaganda to destroy the medical infrastructure for Gazans to survive. Very ugly that not one media agency has followed this up.

        “Oh, that depends on how many casualties they are prepared to take.

        I don’t know if you’re familiar with the ‘War Nerd’ blogger, but he has said that the IDF are one of the most overrated military outfits in the world. And one of the main reasons for that is their unwillingness to take casualties. The most famous Israeli military invention – the ill-fated Merkava – is essentially an armoured cocoon. And while the IDF can bomb hospitals, schools and refugee camps with barely a murmer of complaint from the great Israeli public, their tolerance for their own casualties is extremely low.

        That’s a major disadvantage for an army, especially one up against opponents who don’t share their cowardice. If you want to be succesful at war, you have to be prepared to take casualties, not whine when your Ipad got smashed by kids throwing stones. It always made me laugh to hear people claim that the clowns who ran away from Hizballah were going to take on Iran. As if.

        The main difficulty, of course, is proportion. Deciding how many Atheist, secular, Reform, Conservative, or Orthodox and Haredi casualties there should be. The casualties must be proportionately distributed among the groups, and that is very difficult to do. Can’t have one denomination suspecting they are taking all the hits. Bad for morale.

    So what are the leader of the US Congress and others saying? What damn excuse can Israel come up with this time? Storming a hospital and assassinating people inside is AGAINST INTERNATIONAL LAWS. Of course we all know Israel is a rogue nation, acts like it is above all laws on this earth, and are experts at sending their murderers into civilians places like a hospital, to kill scientists in other nations, or even a hotel in Dubai, to execute or arrest those THEY deem guilty. This is terrorism by a so called democracy. I have not seen this zio thuggery being reported in the MSM, and it seems all Americans willing to fall on their swords for the zionists are okay with such a display of arrogance and brutality. This video will go viral around the world, and disgust those able to recognize an out of control rogue nation (and will blame the US for being their enablers).

        Bombing any hospital is unacceptable. What the US did is wrong, but that does not give the zionists the right to go into a hospital to kill and arrest. Especially knowing their ugly record of going into places where laws say they cannot, to kill and kidnap.

  7. Kris on November 12, 2015, 9:48 pm

    Israel “advances” international law by violating it over and over again until the violations become the new “normal.” The U.S. has joined Israel in this evil practice.

    In 2009, the former head of the international law department of Israel’s military establishment, Daniel Reisner, said that “International law progresses through violations. We invented the targeted assassination thesis and we had to push it. At first there were protrusions that made it hard to insert easily into the legal molds. Eight years later, it is in the center of the bounds of legitimacy.”

    ((snip))

    The United States has emulated this strategy for “progress” in dismantling international law. Its military and clandestine operations in recent years have included torture, kidnap, the use of anti-personnel fragmentation weapons, and the mass armored and artillery “shock and awe” assault tactic employed against Baghdad and Fallujah in Iraq, whose purpose is terrorization of civilian populations as well as enemy troops.

    Washington’s adamant hostility to the creation or recognition of international war crimes courts, widely supported in the international community, has amounted to acknowledgement that American practices would be likely to expose troops and officials to international war crimes indictments, or civil actions similar to Italy’s indictment and recent trial in absentia of CIA officers charged with the illegal apprehension and rendition for torture of an Italian resident.

    Once the U.S. bombs a few more hospitals, and Israel has invaded a few more hospitals and assassinated people in them, this will be the new normal, so if some Palestinians take out a wing or two of some Israeli hospital, the U.S. and Israel should be good with that.

      He wasn’t in Israel though. He was in Palestine, wounded near a shtetlment on stolen land. Maybe he is someone who advocates and orchestrates further theft and worse violence against the indigenous owners of the land. The simple fact that Azzam Shalaldeh was shot by this person makes me question what kind of “civilian” he was. Violent shtetler militiaman is more likely the truth.

    There are emerging reports that the commander of the elite unit which carried out the operation has disciplined his soldiers for alleged mistakes and failures.The capture of the “terrorist” was an important part of the operation and the elimination of a mature potential “terrorist” was an unexpected bonus but apparently the main objective was to access the main childrens ward and terrify the three and four year olds in these wards along with their mothers and any siblings. One of the soldiers who was criticised blamed their failure on the confusing signage in the hospital.

    All members of the unit are apparently receiving treatment for PTSD in a specialist Tel Aviv beachside rehab village.

    Despite all this the Israeli Education minister Nuttily Bennett described the operation as an astounding success saying that it demonstrated clearly that Israel had the most advanced “hospital busting” capability of any army in the in the world and that it would not hesitate to seek out and neutralise three and four year old terrorists who threaten the nation`s security.

        Which is yet more evidence of how massively overrated the Israeli military and ‘intelligence’ are. What on earth are ”Arab looks”? Arabs include negros from Egypt or Sudan, as well as Lebanese and Palestinians who could easily pass for Southern, even Northern, Europeans. There is no ”Arab looks” – or ”white looks” for that matter. Only the orientalist fools who run Israeli ”intelligence” could think there are.

        And people wonder why the much over-hyped Mossad doesn’t even know what’s going on right across its own ‘borders’. Not surprising, given that it’s apparently being run by 14 year olds.

        These institutions were formed during the 50’s and 60’s when there were distinct grouping of Israeli Jews, with most of the political and military roles filled by European Jews (Ashkenazim Jews) who visually stuck out in the mostly coffee-coloured Middle Eastern population. Therefore it was necessary establish Mizrahim or “Arabized” teams so that the military personnel can infiltrate the surrounding Arab countries more covertly. Likewise, sending a Mizrahim Jew to spy in Norway would be pretty ineffective as well, therefore the “White” units.

        Speaking of ‘ineffective’, would it be one of those ”white units” who murdered an innocent Arab waiter in Norway, because those geniuses thought he was one of the Munich attackers (Spielberg left that bit out of his film, of course)?

      • on November 14, 2015, 8:45 am

        What do you mean? While there will always be outliers appearance wise, but most countries have a typical appearance that fits the bell-curve, such as darker hair and tanner skin in Middle East while lighter hair and skin in Northern Europe. Obviously appearance is not the only criteria for any covert missions, but it is a major component of stealth and infiltration.

        They can either send a group of blue eyed blonde men to mingle with the Palestinians, or they could send a group of tanned dark haired men that carry the same genetic markers as their target population. These are not diplomatic missions, so I’m not sure why would you be surprised with this.

      • Maximus Decimus Meridius on November 14, 2015, 10:02 am

        It was you who mentioned ‘Arab looks’, and like I said ‘Arab looks’ run the gamut from Negro to pale skinned and blue eyed. There is no such thing as an ‘Arab look’ and it shows what fools are running Israeli ‘intelligence’ that they think there is.

        “They can either send a group of blue eyed blonde men to mingle with the Palestinians, or they could send a group of tanned dark haired men that carry the same genetic markers as their target population”

        I didn’t know they could test for ‘genetic markers’ in the 1950s, when you say the genuis idea to run these ‘units’ originated.

        Anyway, since you’re such a fan of this method, could you list some of the successes of these ‘white units’ and ‘Arab units’ in collecting valuable intelligence? Was it an ‘Arab unit’ which tried to poison Khalid Mishael on the territory of an Israeli ally, Jordan – by injecting poison into his ear? And when they failed in their Keystone Kops scheme, were captured by Mishael’s single unarmed bodyguard?

        I doubt their ‘coffee coloured skin’ was much help there.

      • on November 14, 2015, 10:30 am

        “Arabized” is a term the Israeli themselves chose, I suppose if some sector of Jews had narrow eyes and hairless skin, they would be termed as “Sinicized” Jews or something like that, even though Native Americans, Yakut, Korean, Mongolian and many others share the same features. What a weird thing to get worked up over.

        Thank G-d that Zionism never fell into that ideological trap! And, I might add, they never tolerate even “positive racism” from Zionist supporters, either!

        Who’s getting ‘worked up’? And who used the term ‘Arabised’? Not me.

        Anyway, still waiting for you to list all the many successes of these ‘Arab units’.

        @”Arab looks”—
        The colonizer always has fantasies and desires about the colonized: it comes out in various ways such as putting on costumes and clothes based on stereotypes of what they believe the colonized is supposed to look like. Something about disavowed colonial desires. And that’s where the two score Israelis wearing costumes of male and female so-called “Aravim” come in! They didn’t *need* to, but they couldn’t resist wearing those old knit shirts, hoodies, transparent “beards”, long dresses and so on. That’s why there were so many of them, a thing I couldn’t figure out until just now. They invited some novices to join in for the kicks. It was fun, 25 odd colonizers squashing a few more colonized ants with their shoes, while dressed in their own fantasy images of them. Oh yes, there were very many of them.

        @canofworms

        Exactly!

        I said before that this was feel-good pantomine – a way for these thugs to feel like they were recreating Israel’s supposed ‘glory days’with an ‘audacious’ Entebbe style raid – never mind that it requires neither brains nor courage to raid a hospital to kill and kidnap unarmed people. They could have easily just done their usual routine – a few armed thugs in army uniforms invade the hospital and kill and grab whoever they want. No need for all the fancy dress, but hey, when your army hasn’t won a war in over 40 years, and the most recent exploits of your once famed ‘intelligence’ services include kidnapping a Lebanese grocer called Hassan Nasrallah (the clowns thought he was the real deal) then I guess you need a bit of morale boosting every now and then. I’ll bet the Israeli public just lapped it up.

      I doubt they’re trying to look like Palestinians. They’re hiding their identities while they commit a war crime

      • Maximus Decimus Meridius on November 14, 2015, 5:00 am

        Also, what does ‘looking Palestinian’ even mean? Palestinians and Jewish Israelis don’t look that different to me, and while some Palestinian women wear traditional dress, most men – and many women – dress in much the same way as Israelis do.

    The Israeli narrative reeks of stinking Ziopoop at every turn

    Credit where credit is due! Thanks to Jackdaw for this link http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4724483,00.html

    It clearly incriminates the IDF and the illegal settler and exposes their filthy lies

    From the link:

    Israeli security forces arrested a terrorist in his hospital bed in Hebron on Wednesday night, shooting and killing his cousin in the raid.

    Azzam Shalaldeh, 20, stabbed and moderately wounded 58-years-old Israel Ben-Aharon near the settlement of Metzad in the West Bank last month, and managed to escape despite being shot by his victim.

    Israeli security forces are required to have

    … a fixed distinctive emblem recognizable at a distance; http://avalon.law.yale.edu/19th_century/hague02.asp#art1

    Israel Ben-Aharon was A) an illegal settler and B) armed. AKA a belligerent, not a civilian.

    Azzam Shalaldeh was not a terrorist. The occupied have a legal right to attack and kill foreign armed belligerents.

    1.) They obviously didn’t need 2 dozen armed men with false beards to arrest one injured man, in an unprotected hospital — leaving the only conclusion, that the show was designed to anger the Palestinian population. And just open your mouth about it, so they’ll have a reason to get at you, too.

    2.) And yes. of course it works. It shows you that a Palestinian has absolutely no protection anywhere.

    Is the hospital without armed security? A place of worship? A school? Since it’s clear nobody will be protecting the people, seems like the people do need to be defending their own weak and their own sick and patrolling public places.

      “seems like the people do need to be defending their own weak and their own sick and patrolling public places.”

      See No. 2. And, what can they “patrol” with? Do you think they should wear uniforms?

    Yep, treachery is just another war crime in the endless list of war crimes commited by the most moral army in the world.
