As previously stated, the B’Tselem databases create the illusion that Palestinian combatants killed by the Israeli security apparatus are victims, victims of an “occupier“. The Adham Abdel el-Al narrative is an example of this misinformation.
Adham Abdel el-Al , B’Tselem states, was killed in an “incident“, along with his mother and brother, in his mother’s house. This narrative creates an issue of moral legitimacy, that Israel does not adhere to conventionally accepted standards of conduct, after all, according to B’Tselem, even though el-Al participated in hostilities, the killings took place in his mother’s home, civilians were killed along with el-Al, who at the time, based on the B’Tselem narrative, was not involved in any hostilities. Nothing in the B’Tselem narrative, it would seem, justified the killing of these three Palestinians.
Nothing in the B’Tselem narrative justified the killing of these three Palestinians because B’Tselem omitted several material facts which, that had they been included, would have completely changed what was inferred by the B’Tselem narrative.
Adham Abdel el-Al was a Field Commander in the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades.
Adham Abdel el-Al was also affiliated with the Saif al-Islam Battalions, a jihadist network.
He worked within the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades’ Rocket Unit, firing rockets into Israel, some of which most likely hit civilian population areas due to their inaccuracy – the indiscriminate firing of these rockets into Israel without having any military target is considered a war crime.
On the day of the “incident”, after leaving the launch site and completing his “jihadi duties”, the firing of rockets into Israel, el-Al returned to his mother’s house.
The IDF located and surveilled el-Al after the rocket launch, followed him to his mother’s house, targeted him and killed him. The indiscriminate firing of rockets into Israel is considered a war crime.
By omitting these significant material facts, the B’Tselem narrative accomplished three key goals. First, it conceals el-Al’s identity, his terror organization affiliation and his activities within in the terror organization. And second, the narrative conceals why the el-Al house was targeted, why the “incident” truthfully took place. And third, the narrative enabled B’Tselem to indirectly suggest that el-Al and his family were victims of Israel’s immoral standards of conduct.
Adham Abdel el-Al, the terror operative combatant, re-imagined by B’Tselem as the victim.
