Take No Prisoners - The Fatal Shooting of Palestinians by Israeli Forces During Arrest Operations
According to B’Tselem’s figures, since the beginning of 2004, Israelis security forces have killed eighty-nine Palestinians during operations that the defense establishment refers to as arrest operations. At least seventeen of the persons killed were not wanted by Israel, but were civilians who were not suspected by Israel of having committed any offense. In addition, at least forty-three of those killed were unarmed, or were not attempting to use their arms against Israeli security forces at the time they were killed. None of these cases were investigated by the Military Police investigation unit.

Based on the report’s findings, there is a grave suspicion that execution of Palestinians has become a norm among the security forces.
