Al-Haq refutes Israeli army claims on killing of Palestinian paramedic

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- On March 27th 2019, Israeli forces killed 17-year-old Palestinian, Sajed Abed al-Hakim Mizher, a volunteer first responder with the Palestinian Medical Relief Society (PMRS), who was shot dead by Israeli forces, while he was on duty tending to the injured during violent clashes between Palestinian youths and Israeli soldiers in the Dheisheh refugee camp, in the southern occupied West Bank city of Bethlehem.

Palestinian human rights organization Al-Haq has carried out comprehensive field investigations into the killing of Sajed Mizher, having collected sworn affidavits from eyewitnesses, prepared a field report of the incident, and collected images and other relevant documents on the case.

Al-Haq’s report outlines the facts of the killing, as documented by the organization, and provides contextual information collected in relation to the victim, while it further details the distortion of the truth by the Israeli authorities in relation to alleged footage of the killing distributed by the Israeli army and media, and sheds light on Al-Haq’s conclusions as a result of its detailed documentation and follow-up.

The special report also includes a set of key recommendations on accountability, including to third States, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), relevant UN Special Procedures mandate holders, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC).
