Khair al-Din Rouf Hamdan, 22 years old, was killed on August 11, 2014 after being shot in the chest by Israeli police during an arrest raid in Kafr Kana, a village north of Nazareth. He was shot dead after police attempted to arrest his cousin. Khair al-Din was a Palestinian citizen of Israel.

Palestinians in Israel are subject to routine discrimination, particularly in housing, land access and employment, and anger has risen in recent months over Israel’s assault on Gaza that left nearly 2,200 dead. More than 700 Palestinians in Israel were arrested in protests across the country against the attack over summer.

VIDEO: Police shoot dead youth holding knife

Police claim Khair Hamdan (22) from town in lower Galilee was shot to death after he attempted to stab officer; Video obtained by Ynet shows Hamdan approached police car, hit windshield with knife.

Video surveillance recordings obtained by Ynet documented an incident on Saturday night in which police officers shot a 22-year-old man named Khair al-Din Rouf Hamdan, from the town of Kafr Kanna in the lower Galilee, after he attempted, according to the police, to stab one of the officers.

The footage, however, shows Hamdan approaching the police car in which there were four police officers, and hitting the windshield of the car with a knife he was holding in his hand. Several officers are then shown stepping out of the vehicle, after which Hamdan quickly moved backwards.

One of the officers then proceeded to fire several shots, wounding him. The other officers helped the officer who fired the shots move Hamdan into the police car, after which he was transferred to the care of Magen David Adom paramedics. The medical teams evacuated him to the HaEmek Medical Center in Afula, where he died from his wounds.

A statement issued by the police said that Hamdan “attempted to stab police officers during the arrest of one of the residents. This is the reason he was shot. We are continuing to investigate the incident.”

Officers outside vehicle after shooting

According to police, Hamdan was shot dead after he attempted to stab one of the officers on Saturday night. The officers, who arrived at the town to arrest a different person, fired warning shots in the air, and said that after feeling that their lives were threatened, shot Hamdan, wounding him in his upper body.

Officers move Hamdan into car

Moshe Weizman, Superintendent of the North District Police said that “Nazareth police forces arrested a suspect who attempted to throw a stun grenade…when suddenly they were attacked by another man at the age of 20, who was holding a drawn knife.”

Weizman added that “the forces fired in the air in response and upon feeling that their lives were being threatened, they opened fire at the young man. Large police forces from Nazareth station and other forces from the district are at the scene of the incident.”

Members of Hamdan’s family say they are furious over the conduct of the police. “The security cameras clearly show that there was no danger to the lives of the officers,” the family told Ynet. “The video shows him running away from the officers; this horrifying incident could have been avoided, but unfortunately they decided to kill him in a cruel way.”

The Hamdan family further said that “we hope that police stops these officers and punishes them, since they killed a man for no justifiable reason.”

PATENTLY FALSE NARRATIVE, ORIGINAL HUMANIZE PALESTINE WEBSITE

ORIGINAL HUMANIZE PALESTINE WEBSITE

“Khair al-Din Rouf Hamdan … was killed … after being shot during an arrest raid … He was shot dead after police attempted to arrest his cousin.”

THE FACTS

Nazareth police arrested a suspect who attempted to throw a stun grenade. Hamdan is then seen running down the street towards a police vehicle, he has a knife and he repeatedly strikes the vehicle’s window with the knife. A police officer attempts to exit the vehicle and he is immediately attacked, Hamdan attempts to stab him. The office closes the door in self-defense, re-emerges from the vehicle and shoots Hamdan.

Hamdan was not shot dead “after police attempted to arrest his cousin”. Hamdan was shot dead after he attempted to stab a police officer. He was not shot during an arrest raid. He was shot after a suspect was arrested, when he tried to kill a police officer with a knife.
