It seems this nurse really did not have any borders.
Israel said on Thursday that a Palestinian gunman killed by its forces on the Gaza Strip border this week was a nurse working for Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders) and that it was seeking an explanation from the international aid group.
Israel’s liaison office for Gaza, Cogat, named the Palestinian as Hani Majdalawi and said he was shot dead on Monday after shooting and throwing a grenade at soldiers.
“We have reached out to Doctors without Borders for clarification regarding the matter,” a Cogat spokesman said.
The organization did not immediately reply to phone and email queries by Reuters. Its website says that the group runs three burns and trauma centers in Gaza, whose Islamist Hamas rulers have fought three wars against Israel in the last decade.
Gaza authorities did not confirm Majdalawi’s death, saying that would require having his body, which they believed was being held by Israel. The Israeli military said they could not immediately confirm this.
No armed Palestinian factions claimed Majdalawi as a member.
Responding to Israeli media reports on Majdalawi’s killing, his brother, Osama, described the married 28-year-old on Facebook as a “martyr” who had “bought the weapon with his own money” and acted “completely independently”.
The Facebook post said Hani Majdalawi had worked for Doctors Without Borders and that he had been “the most socially, psychologically and economically stable among his brothers”.
You can see his brother’s Facebook post confirming he bought a weapon and acted independently here.
Hani the dead terrorist also had his own Facebook page, which is still up as of the time of this post. It confirms he worked for Doctors Without Borders. Note also the post from August 19, which is the day before he was killed.
Tomorrow is the greatest day of the year.
May Allah give us your remembrance and thank you and good worship
Was this him foreshadowing that he would try and martyr himself? At first, I thought he may have been referring to the Islamic holiday of Eid al-Adha, but that started on Tuesday.
Either way, this is yet another example of terrorists working for so-called “human rights” organizations.
