    Autopsies of those killed by Israeli defense forces reveal that Jerusalem is not only systematically executing Palestinians, but also intentionally firing rounds into corpses.

    On Monday, Israeli soldiers shot and killed three Palestinians. Qassem Farid Jaber, 31, and Amir Fuad al-Juneidi, 22, were gunned down after opening fire on Israeli troopers near the Kiryat Arba Israeli settlement in the West Bank.

    An Israeli soldier was reportedly injured during the incident.

    A third Palestinian man was killed in a separate incident on the same day. Yousef Waleed Tarayra, 18, was shot dead after allegedly attempting a ramming attack in his car, injuring two Israeli soldiers.

    Autopsies of the three men were performed on Tuesday, and according to a high-level Palestinian judicial office, the results show that their corpses were additionally fired upon.

    Ashraf Mashal, the head of the General Prosecutor's’ Office in al-Khalil, said that all three autopsies showed that Israeli forces fired a number of live rounds into various parts of their bodies, according to Press TV.

    Mashal said Monday’s incidents resembled the death of 20-year-old Mohamad Abu Khalaf last month. Similarly, an autopsy showed that the young man was killed by two rounds, though his body was littered with dozens of other bullets.

    That incident was caught on camera by an Al Jazeera film crew.

    Last November, Israeli forces shot and killed Hadeel Wajeeh Awwad, a 16-year-old girl, and seriously wounded her friend. Both girls had attempted a stabbing attack. That incident was also captured on surveillance video.

    Since last October, approximately 200 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli soldiers. Many of these were women and children.

    While Israeli Army Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot encouraged soldiers to exercise discretion last month, Israel’s chief Sephardic Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef urged his troops to ignore those pleas earlier this week.

    During his weekly Torah lesson, Rabbi Yosef called for the killing of any “armed Palestinian,” whether they possess a gun or a rock, according to Haaretz.
