Paramedics are not allowed to save Palestinians injured during clashes in Al-Bireh city - Israeli soldiers are apparently taught the "bleed to death" policy against Palestinians in all occurrences.

(Imprisoned Qassam Commander)


Khaled El-Najjar is an imprisoned commander in Ezzedeen Al-Qassam Brigades in the West Bank. He is from the village of Silwad, near Ramallah. He was part of a cell that carried out one of the most painful operations against the occupation army during Al-Quds Intifada. It was the "Ein Yabroud" operation, which resulted in the complete elimination of a 4-man foot occupation patrol in a span of 10 seconds.


After a long interrogation, Zionist officers surprised Khalid with new clothes and shoes. He did not know why they were giving him the clothes, but welcomed the chance to change his clothes torn and bloodied by torture.


Two Zionist soldiers took him to a big room where there were other officers and interrogators. Shortly after Khaled was brought into the room, The Chief of Staff of the Zionist army, Shaul Mofaz, entered the room and set opposite Khalid. The following conversation took place:


Mofaz: Hello


Khalid: (sarcastically). Welcome Shaul, most welcome.


Mofaz: My meeting with you will be about our army, and I will ask you some questions if you do not mind.


Khalid: Go ahead.  


Mofaz: My question to you will be from military man to a military man working in the military wing of Hamas. What are the most important weaknesses  in the Israeli Defense Army ( IDF)?


Khalid : The weakness points! Why don't you ask me about the strong points?


Mofaz : Ok , what are they?


Khalid: There are no strong points.


Mofaz: Why?


Khalid: Because you fight in the sake of your life; and we fight without fearing death. If you fight without fearing death, you will be granted life. During the Ein Yabroud operation, we prepared the ambulance because we expected to sustain injuries. But everything ended in seconds; and your soldiers did not shot a single bullet.


Mofaz: But now your house will be demolished and your wife will be homeless. Are you satisfied with what you brought on to yourself?


Khalid: You are committing a folly?


Mofaz: Why?


Khalid: because my neighbors will see that you are destroying my house and making my family homeless. They will avenge that in the future. I would not recommend that you do that.


Mofaz: Thanks for your advice; but you will pay the bill from your lifetime.


Mofaz went out of the room. A few minutes later, Avi Dichter (head of the Israeli Security Service) came in. He started to address Khaled rudely, using insults. Then he said, "Do you think that you will defeat us of your pitiful operations?" Then he continued with additional insults.  Dichter stopped his triade; and Khaled commented sarcastically, "Stay tuned, we'll be back!"


Khaled was sentenced to 8 life sentences.
