Sharon was born in Tal-Aviv. He is divorced and he lives with his dog in a small apartment in Beniaeh Hanoa'ah Street near Dizengoff Center in Tel Aviv.
Sharon supported and covered up grave crimes in Hebron. He implemented the illegitimate racist and inhuman laws of the British Mandate which ended on 15 May 1948. As a military commander, “Sharon” participated in and committed crimes against Humanity, Genocide, and Crimes of War against the civilian populations of Hebron.
For the time between 1997 and 2000, Sharon was appointed as military commander of Hebron.
On 10 March 1998, under Igal Sharon's command, the IDF opened fire from three meters distance at Palestinian civilian workers cars near the Tarqumia checkpoint. They murdered three workers and injured another 17 civilians.
The workers who were murdered:
[*] Muhammad Al-Sharawneh, the taxi driver.
[*] Adnan Al-Sharhah, 36 years old, married and a father of nine children.
[*] Galeb Al-Rojub, 35 years old, married and a father of five children.
[*] Oqab Al-Sayyed Ahmad was shot twice but survived.
Other 17 civilians were injured in the same terrorist crime.
[*] Samer Karameh, age of 13, was murdered, on March 17, 1998, after being shot in the head by Colonel Yigal soldiers in Hebron.
On 14 May 1998, IDF soldiers under Sharon's command opened fire at a peace demonstration in the center of Hebron. They murdered two Palestinians and injured 45.
On 10 Sep 1998, he led the military operation in which IDF soldiers assassinated the two brothers Imad and Adel Awad Allah. Sharon kept their bodies and hid them in numbered graves in a cemetery where the IDF buries Palestinians who they murder. Sharon is involved in the abduction and murder of two brothers, Emad and Adel Awadallah at the farm of Akram Maswadeh near Hebron. Their bodies were never recovered, and it is suspected that their organs were stolen and sold.
Under Sharon's command, the IDF shot the Palestinians journalists Wael Al-Shukhi, Hosam Abu Allan in their heads, and an Israeli journalist from the Ma'ariv newspaper.
During the command of Sharon, he demanded Itzik Moshe Ya'alon from the Central Command to issue several military orders to occupy the rooftops of Palestinian houses in Hebron. Among them, the houses of Dr. Tayser Zahdeh and the families Abu Munshar and Hashem Al-Azzeh.
Under the command of Ygal Sharon the IDF shot and arrested many children. Majdi Al-Muhtaseb of age 9 was shot after he refused to give his football to an IDF soldier.
On 16 June 1999 Majdi Al-Hashim of age 9 was shot by Ygal Sharon's soldier in Al-Shalaleh Street.
On 20 April 1998, Sharon made a deal with the settlers from Hebron to confiscate the lands of farmers near the village of Yatta, and to destroy their caves and their wells.
During his tenure as military commander of Hebron, the Jewish settler Shlomo Alkobi murdered the Palestinian Asem Rashad Arafeh of age 23. Sharon's soldiers shot 96 peace demonstrators during the funeral of Arafeh, among them Palestinian police officers.
Ygal Sharon was generally known as a homosexual among the paratroopers stationed in Hebron. The settlers used to make fun about him and call him a "womanizer".
Under the command of Sharon, the sexual harassment by soldiers of the IDF against Palestinian women in Hebron increased dramatically. My neighbor Nezeeha Abu Dahoud is one example. She was harassed by soldiers under the command of Sharon, who entered the bedroom of Nazeeha and her husband insulting them. When the husband tried to protect her, they beat him savagely.
Sharon appears in my film "Hebron, City without Mercy" where his soldiers force Palestinian civilians to drink urine. The film was used by the Israel military to teach their soldiers how to not be caught on camera.
According to credible reports of persons who knew him personally, Ygal Sharon consumed drugs and was often drugged while on duty.
Ygal Sharon is a former commander of the IDF paratroopers. In 2000 he was discharged at the rank of colonel as a commander of the IDF in Hebron.
According to a CV which he has put on the net, Sharon later studied history at The Tel Aviv University and he got a BA. He also studied social sciences at Haifa University, and he studied Law at Herzeliya IDC, at Radzyner School of Law.
