An Israeli commando unit recently raided the hospital and assassinated three injured people getting care. This is well covered in the media. One of the pictures taken after the raid is rather notorious and shows a bloody pillow (shown in the Getty Images, and a different angle in the AP article).

There is a post on Instagram by @grassrootslaw now that is captioned,

grassrootslaw's profile picture 🤬🤬🤬Did you see the video where Israeli soldiers dressed up like Muslim women and doctors and stormed the hospital in the West Bank and assassinated 3 young Palestinians?⁣

Did you see the bloody pillow with the bullet hole in it?⁣

THIS IS WHO THEY MURDERED IN THAT BED. A paralyzed CHILD named Bassel.

This video was taken just one day before Israel literally shot him in the face in his bed.

Here is a screen cap of the video,

Specifically the claim of

THIS IS WHO THEY MURDERED IN THAT BED. A paralyzed CHILD named Bassel.

Does this Instagram post contain a video of the child murdered. And further, was he paralyzed?

    Is there any doubt? Photos of the bloody aftermath shows the same bed in the same room and older profile photos of Bassel look extremely similar to the person in the bed. Feb 1 at 23:14

    What is the question? Did they kill Mohammed Jalamneh (27), Mohammed Ghazzawi (23) and Bassel Ghazzawi (18)? Yes they did. And what is the “skeptics” question here? “The Israeli military said the other two Palestinians killed were also militants from Jenin who had been involved in recent attacks. One of them was a member of the Hamas-allied Islamic Jihad group while the other was part of a group of gunmen in Jenin, it said.” thenationalnews.com/mena/palestine-israel/2024/01/30/… Feb 2 at 4:05

    Although one can question the ethics of this operation, using words like "child" and "boy" is very misleading. An 18-year-old is of military age. Feb 2 at 4:16

    @MathematicsStudent1122 To be fair, the “boy” (Bassel Ghazzawi) was paralyzed for at least 4 months: “Bassel Ghazzawi had been in the hospital for nearly four months after being hit by fragments of a missile fired from an Israeli drone, causing paralysis in his lower limbs, Wafa reported.” thenationalnews.com/mena/palestine-israel/2024/01/30/… Feb 2 at 4:27
