Israel turns Gaza beach into a deadly execution field for civilians

Wednesday 12-June-2024


The Israeli occupation forces opened fire on Palestinian displaced persons who were heading north in the Gaza Strip through the coastal Al-Rashid Street, which the occupation army claims is a safe passage for civilians.

Hundreds of civilians were moving on the coastal road in early June of this current year, when the occupation soldiers opened fire on them directly.

Al Jazeera obtained exclusive footage showing the occupation soldiers killing an unarmed displaced person as he attempted to cross from the beach, after they had ordered him to stop in his place.

The soldiers positioned themselves on a hill on the beach, and one of them shot the Palestinian, who fell on the spot, before they unleashed a barrage of bullets to ensure his execution.

The footage also showed the execution of a Palestinian who was advancing with a group of civilians trying to cross northward on May 17th, after they shot him despite the fact that he was moving with his hand raised to confirm that he was an unarmed civilian. After killing him, the soldiers seized the man’s body and his identity remains unknown.

On May 26th, the occupation soldiers stopped a Palestinian who was walking on the beach road, asked him to raise his hand, and then opened fire on him directly before a military vehicle began combing the area.

In the afternoon of the 31st of the same month, the occupation soldiers opened fire on a displaced person who was trying to cross amid a group of Palestinians, despite the fact that he had stopped in his place as they had instructed him.

This scene was repeated in more than one location, confirming that the occupation forces were carrying out a specific process of luring and deceiving civilians in order to execute them in the field on the Gaza beach.

The images confirm that the field execution of civilians has become a routine practice carried out by Israeli soldiers during the aggression, as stray dogs were shown devouring dozens of bodies strewn on the beach without identifying their owners.
