Shabab (Palestinian youths) have climbed onto a rooftop while Muslim women look on from the ground as the bodies of four men are paraded around Manger Square in Bethlehem during their funeral. The four men were Islamic Jihad leader Mohammad Shahada, Islamic Jihad militants Issa Marzouq and Imad Al-Kamel, and Al-Aqsa Brigades militant Ahmad Al-Balboul. They were Killed by small arms fire the previous evening from undercover Israeli Special Forces as they waited in a car outside a bakery in Bethlehem. Such killings occur as part of Israel’s policy of ‘focused foiling’ otherwise known as targeted killing: The assassination of individuals considered to be engaged in activity that threatens the security of the Israeli state. 2008 (image by James Briggs)
