Assalamu'alaikum,

DCI/PS SUBMITS SUMMARY REPORT TO UN SPECIAL RAPPORTEUR OF THE COMMISSION
ON HUMAN RIGHTS (Oct 12/00)

Today, DCI/PS submitted its summary report regarding the recent Israeli
attack on Palestinian civilians to Mr. Giorgio Giacomelli, the UN Special
Rapporteur of the Commission on Human Rights. The following is an excerpt
of the report highlighting the findings of DCI/PS fieldwork. PLEASE SEE
THE COMPLETE REPORT @ http://www.iap.org/humanrights/dci.htm

Since the outbreak of the clashes, DCI/PS has documented the deaths of 24
Palestinian children. These children ranged in age from 18 months to 18
years old. According to DCI/PS fieldwork, each one of these children died
after being hit with live ammunition, including one child whose head was
ripped in two after being hit with a missile. All of them were shot in the
upper parts of their body, with at least 12 of them being shot in the
head. At least 3 were hit with dum-dum bullets, which explode upon impact.
There are an additional 5 Palestinian children, ranging in age from 9 to
17, who have been declared clinically dead after being shot with live
ammunition in the head.

According to the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (West Bank) and the
Ministry of Health (Gaza Strip), as of 11 October 2000, 1, 148 Palestinian
children have been injured as a result of the Israeli attack. DCI/PS has
full information regarding 474 cases. Of those, 84 were wounded with live
ammunition, 313 with rubber coated steel bullets, and 67 suffered
suffocation from tear gas (please see tables below). In addition, Israeli
military forces beat 10 children. The age distribution is as follows: 25
children 8 years and under; 67 children between 9 and 12; 167 children
between 13 and 15; and, 215 children from 16 to 18 years of age. Breaking
down the figures of the total number of children injured by live
ammunition or rubber coated steel bullets, 397 cases, we see that 198, or
49.87% were hit in the upper part of their body, while 199 were injured in
the other parts of the body, including the limbs (166) and pelvic area
(8). 112 children were hit in the head; an additional 20 in the eyes; 16
in the back; 11 in the neck; 19 in the chest; and 20 in the abdomen. Six
children were wounded in both the limbs and upper body. These figures
reflect that the Israeli military forces are successfully targeting the
upper part of the body with an apparent intent to kill or seriously
injure.
