Hazem Abdel-Baset Abu Hilal, 25 years old, was killed on August 3,  2014 when an IOF drone fired a Hellfire missile that hit the UNRWA School for Boys near the center of Rafah refugee camp. Hazem was volunteering at the school, which has been transformed into a UN shelter that hosts people who had been forced to evacuate their homes. He studied at Al-Azhar University of Gaza. 

“I want the ceasefire to work so much. I just want us to live like ordinary people, to be with my children, to watch my grand children grow up, to go to sleep, to wake, like people everywhere,” said Hazem’s father, Abdul Baset, a 55-year-old nurse…”When we buried the body, no one was there. People were afraid. It was too quick. It was not right,” Abdul Baset said.

THE FACTUALLY CORRECT NARRATIVE:

Identifying Palestinian Terrorists

SHABIBA (FATAH YOUTH MOVEMENT) TERRORIST: HAZEM ABU HILAL

THE INCIDENT

MILITARY ADVOCATE GENERAL

The Military Advocate General (MAG Corps’) (Hebrew: הפרקליטות הצבאית‎, HaParklitut HaTzva’it) is responsible for implementing the rule of law within the Israel Defense Forces. The unit’s objectives include integrating the rule of law amongst IDF commanders and soldiers;⁸ providing commanders with the tools for the effective performance of their missions in accordance with the law; and working with the IDF achieve its goals on all legal fronts. The MAG Corps’, most noteworthly, has the ability to provide legal advice in emergencies and during warfare.[1]

FFA MECHANISM

A General Staff Mechanism for Fact-Finding Assessments (the ‘FFA Mechanism’) examines Exceptional Incidents that occurred during Operation ‘Protective Edge’. The FFA Mechanism, headed by a Major General, was activated soon after the commencement of Operation ‘Protective Edge’, in the midst of the ongoing hostilities.

Allegation Regarding the Death of Civilians as the Result of a Strike in the Vicinity of a School in Rafah (3 August 2014) 

In media reports, as well as in the complaints and reports of NGOs and international organizations, it was alleged, that on August 3, 2014, at around 10:45, a number of civilians were killed and others injured, as the result of an IDF aerial strike in proximity to a Rafah school run by UNRWA. The number of fatalities varies from report to report, and ranges from seven to fifteen fatalities. According to the main allegation arising in the aforementioned complaints and reports, the strike took place a few meters from the gate of the school, which was at that time serving as a shelter for civilians who had evacuated their homes, at the exact moment when the gate was open, and was aimed at a motorbike that was passing through the area and its riders. The incident was subsequently referred to the FFA Mechanism for examination. 

The factual findings, collated by the FFA Mechanism and presented to the MAG, indicate that the school was designated as a “sensitive site” on the relevant operational systems of the IDF. In accordance with the IDF’s operational instructions, any military operation to be conducted in the vicinity of such sites requires the adoption of special precautions. The fact that the school was serving at the time as a shelter for civilians who had evacuated from their homes was also noted on the relevant systems.

It was further found, that on 3 August 2014, the IDF observed three people riding on a motorbike, who were identified, on the basis of up-to-date intelligence information, as military operatives. From the moment that the decision to strike the operatives was made, the IDF carried out aerial surveillance on the motorbike’s path, and surveyed a wide radius of the estimated continued route of the motorbike, in order to minimize the potential for harm to civilians on the route or in proximity thereto. The final destination of the military operatives was not known to the operational authorities. The strike on the military operatives was planned for execution by means of a precise munition, with a reduced explosive load, in a way that would allow for the strike’s objective to be achieved, whilst minimizing the potential for harm to civilians or passing vehicles. 

It was further found, that a period of time after the munition had been fired, and mere seconds before it reached its target, the motorbike entered a traffic circle with a number of different exits, and left it via one of them. The FFA Mechanism’s findings indicate that with the means that were at their disposal, and under the visibility conditions prevailing at that time, the operational authorities were not able to discern in real-time the group of civilians that were outside the school, in proximity to the route along which the aforementioned motorbike was travelling. It was further found that, in any case, at the moment upon which the motorbike exited the traffic circle and started to travel along the road bordering the wall which surrounded the school, it was no longer possible to divert the munition which had been fired at the motorbike.

The strike on the motorbike riders occurred immediately after the motorbike passed by the gate of the school. As mentioned above, it is alleged that as a result of the strike between seven and fifteen people in the vicinity of the school’s gate were killed (as indicated above, the number of fatalities varies from report to report). According to the findings of the FFA Mechanism, three military operatives were among the fatalities.

After reviewing the factual findings and the material collated by the FFA Mechanism, the MAG found that the targeting process in question accorded with Israeli domestic law and international law requirements.

The decision to strike was taken by the competent authorities, and the object of the attack was lawful – military operatives. The attack complied with the principle of proportionality, as at the time the decision to attack was taken it was considered that the collateral damage expected to arise as a result of the attack would not be excessive in relation to the military advantage anticipated to result from it (essentially, it was considered in real-time that the strike would only harm the military operatives targeted). This assessment was not unreasonable under the circumstances, in light of the fact that aerial surveillance of the routes which the motorbike was predicted to take, which had commenced when the decision to strike was taken, had not shown any civilian presence on those routes.

Moreover, the attack was carried out in conjunction with various precautionary measures, such as the selection of the munition used to carry out the strike, which aimed to mitigate the risk to civilians and passing vehicles. It was also found that under the circumstances, the operational authorities had not foreseen that that the strike on the motorbike would take place in the vicinity of the school, and that, in any case, at the time at which it became clear that the strike would occur in proximity to the school, they did not have the capacity to prevent the strike from taking place in that location. The fact that, in practice, civilians who were uninvolved in the hostilities were harmed, is a tragic and regrettable result, but does not affect the legality of the attack ex post facto.

In light of the above, the MAG did not find that the actions of IDF forces raised grounds for a reasonable suspicion of criminal misconduct. As a result, the MAG ordered the case to be closed, without opening a criminal investigation, and without any further steps to be taken against those involved.

In the wake of the incident, a number of operational lessons-learned were implemented by the IDF, as regards the methods for carrying out aerial strikes in similar circumstances, with the aim of minimizing the risk of reoccurrence of similar incidents in the future.

Israeli military refuses to investigate attack near UNRWA School in Rafah, Gaza that killed 14 civilians

31/08/2016

Adalah and Al Mezan: The military’s decision not to investigate, made public two years after the attack, demonstrates entrenched impunity and the need for a thorough and credible investigation.

Adalah – The Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel and Al Mezan Center for Human Rights in Gaza responded on 31 August 2016 to the Israeli military’s decision – made public on 24 August 2016 – to close the file without opening a criminal investigation in one of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) school cases.

The case involves a drone missile attack at the entrance of the UNRWA school in Rafah during the 2014 military offensive in Gaza that killed two people on a motorbike, the targets of the shelling, and 12 other Palestinian civilians near the school.

The two human rights organizations sharply contest the MAG’s decision, which demonstrates impunity masquerading as due process. Two years after the attack, an independent, robust and, credible investigation, compliant with the relevant international standards is still awaited.

PHOTOGRAPHIC ANALYSIS

THE STREET OF THE MISSILE ATTACK, THE UNRWA SCHOOL GATE

The following series of sequential photographs reveal what would be observed by an individual in a motor vehicle as it traveled down the street:

PHOTO #1

An observer in a motor vehicle would first see a drainage “Grate” across the road ahead, followed by an “Electric Tower” to the right. The “UNRWA School Gate” is seen next followed by a “Donkey” a little past the school gate.

PHOTO #2

Again, the drainage “Grate” would be encountered first, followed by the “Electric Tower” to the right of the street, then the school gate and an “Awning” immediately beyond the school gate, and then the “Donkey”.

PHOTO #3

Next, the motor vehicle would pass in front of the school gate with the “Awning” to the left of the gate, the “Donkey” a short way farther down the street and the “Electric Tower” to the right of the gate.

PHOTO #4

In this photo, taken farther down the street beyond the school gate, the view is different. It is looking BACK at the path of travel. First there is the “Donkey”, then the school gate and just beyond the gate, the “Electric Tower”.

PHOTO #5

In the photo above, the body of Hazem Abu Hilal, lying immediately in front of the drainage “Grate” in the street. The structure of the “Electric Tower” can be seen as well as the location of the UNRWA school gate and the “Awning” to the left of the school gate.

PHOTO ANALYSIS SUMMARY

As the motorbike traveled down the street and as it passed in front of the UNRWA school gate, it was hit by a missile. The individuals on the motorbike were blown off the vehicle and the inertia of the heavy bike kept it going farther down the street where it came to rest in PHOTO #4.

BODY OF HAZEM ABU HILAL ID’D

Close-up reveals wound on left cheek, left of the corner of the mouth
Wound consists of a circular area in close proximity to corner of mouth, with a streak running up the left cheek to an area between the corner of the eye and left ear
Close-up

At minute 0.23 of the YouTube video, the following image is seen:

This is Hazem Abu Hilal just prior to burial

Note the wound on his left cheek: It begins with a round circular area to the left of the corner of the mouth and it runs up the left side of his face between the corner of his left eye and his left ear.

The wound is identical to the wound seen on the body lying on the pavement by the drainage grate outside the gate to the UNRWA school. It can be stated with a high degree of certainty, that the body lying on the pavement outside the UNRWA school gate in Rafah, is that of Hazem Abu Hilal

FABRICATING A FALSE NARRATIVE

THE UNRWA SCHOOL GATE

This is where the IDF strike took place. The bloody drag marks on the pavement are still visible. Victims of the missile attack targeting a motorbike, outside the school gate, on the street, were dragged into the school grounds to support the false narrative that the school itself was the target.

VICTIMS REPOSITIONED

Well outside the UNRWA school gate, lies the body of Hazem Abu Hilal. It is seen in the street adjacent to the drainage “Grate” that is identified in Photo #1, #2, #5, in the section above, “Photographic Analysis”.

To the right of Hilal’s body, is another individual hit by the missile strike. He is wearing gray, has a black beard and he is bare-footed, no sandals:

In the photo below, Minute 1.04 of the Hazem Abu Hilal YouTube video, taken inside the school grounds, the individual wearing gray, is now to the left of Hilal’s body:

And now the individual in gray is wearing sandals, he is no longer bare-footed:

Obviously, the scene above is staged to support the false narrative that an Israeli missile struck the school.

SUMMARY, FABRICATION OF A FALSE NARRATIVE

The narrative that an Israeli missile hit the UNRWA school is patently false. Individuals hit by the missile strike in the street outside the school gate were repositioned inside the school grounds to create the appearance that they were killed on school grounds. This fraud can be seen by examining different photographs of Hazem Abu Hilal’s body.

PATENTLY FALSE NARRATIVE, ORIGINAL HUMANIZE PALESTINE WEBSITE

ORIGINAL HUMANIZE PALESTINE WEBSITE

“Hazem Abdel-Baset Abu Hilal … was killed … when an IOF drone fired a Hellfire missile that hit the UNRWA School for Boys near the center of Rafah refugee camp.”

THE FACTS

FACT #1

No missile hit the UNRWA school. The missile that was fired targeted and hit a motorbike which was several meters outside the school’s gate.

FACT #2

A Hellfire missile is a 100 pound air-to-ground weapon with a significant anti-tank capacity. The selection of the missile used to attack the motorbike was designed to mitigate the risk to civilians and passing vehicles. It had a reduced explosive load. It was NOT a 100 pound Hellfire anti-tank missile.

This is a picture of the motorbike after it was hit by the missile:

Obviously the motorbike WAS NOT hit by a 100 pound anti-tank Hellfire missile.

THE DECEPTION

The original Humanize Palestine website presented the following narrative for Hazem Abdel-Baset Abu Hilal:

Hazem Abdel-Baset Abu Hilal, 25 years old, was killed on August 3,  2014 when an IOF drone fired a Hellfire missile that hit the UNRWA School for Boys ….

There is another Fatah operative on this website that has a remarkably similar narrative, Ahmad Kamal al-Nahhal. He was a member of Fatah’s military wing, the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades. This is how he appears on this and on the original Humanize Palestine websites’ photo gallery:

The al-Nahhal webpage can be seen by clicking HERE.

This is the al-Nahhal narrative:

Ahmad Kamal al-Nahhal, 23 years old, was killed at approximately 9:50am on Sunday August 3, 2014, when an IOF drone fired a Hellfire missile that hit the UNRWA School A for Boys ….

The Hilal and al-Nahhal narratives are identical. Not only were the two Fatah operatives killed in the same incident at the gate of the UNRWA school, they were two of the three military operatives identified by the Israeli military, targeted and killed in front of the school. The entire incident has been investigated and documented by the Israeli MAG Corps’.

The Israeli Military Advocate General (MAG Corps’) is responsible for implementing the rule of law within the Israeli Defense Forces. Its FFA Mechanism, Fact-Finding Assessments, examines “exceptional incidents” that occurred during Operation ‘Protective Edge’. One such incident involved the deaths of civilians as the result of a strike in the vicinity of a school in Rafah. Some of the findings of that assessment are as follows:

On August 3, 2014, a number of civilians were killed and others injured as a result of an IDF aerial strike in the proximity of a school in Rafah run by UNRWA, the strike took place a few meters from the school gate.

On August 3, 2014, the IDF observed three people riding on a motorbike who were identified on the basis of up-to-date intelligence information as military operatives. The strike on the motorbike took place after the motorbike passed by the gate of the school, three military operatives were among the fatalities. Ahmad Kamal al-Nahhal was killed, he was a member of the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades. He was accompanied by Ismail Samir Suleiman Shalouf, 17 years old. And the third operative was Hazem Abdel-Baset Abu Hilal, a member of Fatah’s student wing, Shabiba, whose moto is: “From the sea of blood of the Martyrs we will create a state.”

CREATING FALSE NARRATIVES WITH PHOTOGRAPHS

The original Humanize Palestine website routinely did this, the photographs of the Palestinian ‘martyrs’ on their website concealed their terror organization affiliation. Hazem Abdel-Baset Abu Hilal was an example of this.

Below are two pictures of Hilal, side by side, for comparison:

The photograph of Hilal on the left is how Hilal is portrayed on the original Humanize Palestine website, his terror organization affiliation concealed, 25 years old, was killed on August 3,  2014 when an IOF drone fired a Hellfire missile hit the UNRWA School for Boys near the center of Rafah refugee camp.

The photograph on the right is who Hilal truthfully was, a Fatah operative, a member of Shabiba, the Fatah Youth Movement, who believed “From the sea of blood of the Martyrs we will create a state.

HAZEM ABDEL-BASET ABU HILAL, FATAH TERROR OPERATIVE

QATARI COVERT FUNDING OF GAZA TERROR ORGANIZATIONS

THE HEARING AND SIGHT FOUNDATION FOR DEVELOPMENT AND COMMUNITY REHABILITATION

مؤسسة السمع والبصر للتنمية والتأهيل المجتمعي

The Hearing and Sight Foundation for Development and Community Rehabilitation is a Qatari NGO charity. It states that its charitable projects in Gaza support the needy, the poor, widows and orphans, especially the parents of cochlear-planted children, many of whom can not afford rehabilitation fees, transportation and other expenses. This is not completely true and misrepresents what the charity presently does in Gaza.

The charity covertly supports and rewards the families of martyred Palestinian terror operatives, affiliates and combatants such as Hazem Abdel-Baset Abu Hilal. By falsely claiming that the charity supports the needy, poor, widows and orphans, the parents of cochlear-planted children, they are concealing their true mission. Receiving aid is not dependent on any of the above. Being needy and poor is not a requirement. The predicate for receiving aid is the family’s affiliation with a Gaza terror organization. The charity supports and rewards the children, widows and orphans of dead Palestinian terror operatives.

Islamic law does not allow adoption, taking someone else’s child as your own. The closest thing to adoption that is is allowed is legal foster care known as “kafala” (كَفَالَة). Kafala is the Islamic legal institution analogous to guardianship and it is used instead of adoption. The Qatari charity is the legal guardian of the 239 children who appeared on their website’s kafala photo gallery, the sons and daughters of martyred Gaza terror operatives. The photo gallery consisted of twenty pages, twelve children per page, eleven on Page 20.

The charity’s website and kafala photo gallery were removed from the internet. Before this happened, most of the website and the twenty pages of photographs were archived. Below, a partial screen grab of one of the archived kafala pages:

The photograph below, the son of Hazem Abdel-Baset Abu Hilal, appeared on Page 19 of the charity’s kafala photo gallery, http://www.alsam3.net/kafala/page/19/. Note, the Qatari charity rewards the families of terror operatives with US dollars:
