Israeli occupation police said that it killed 201 Palestinians between September 2015 and 7 January 2018, Quds Press reported yesterday.

According to the news site, Israeli police claimed that the Palestinians had carried out attacks against Israeli targets.

They said that this is half the number of the Palestinians who carried attacks against Israeli targets – the total number of claimed attacks was 411.

“Israeli police neutralised the Palestinians by opening fire at them until they died,” Quds Press reported Israeli police saying.

Meanwhile, it said that the Israeli news website Wallah had reported that this data did not include field executions carried out by the Israeli occupation forces.

Though Israeli occupation forces claim to have only killed Palestinians who “posed a threat to them”, images have leaked of soldiers planting weapons next to the lifeless bodies of Palestinians.
