Beating and Wilful Killing in Yamoun Village

Beating and Wilful Killing in Yamoun Village

This case study examines the killing, shooting and beating of Iyad, Mustafa and Thaer Samoudi in the village of Yamoun. Through the personal accounts of the two survivors, as well as legal evidence collected by Al-Haq, this study attempts to reconstruct the events of 23 June 2002. The affidavits detail breaches of Israel’s open fire regulations, the excessive use of force, the beating of Thaer Samoudi, and the willful killing of Iyad Samoudi. With a legal analysis of the case, the study shows that these events are a direct product of Israel's continued belligerent occupation of the Occupied Palestinian Territories.
