Palestine: Palestinian child killed by Israeli army fire in Ramallah

By Saed Bannoura


IMEMC & Agencies: Saturday Palestinian medical sources have reported that a Palestinian child was shot and killed by Israeli army fire near the Al-Jalazoun refugee camp, north of the central West Bank city of Ramallah. Neither UK, US nor the European Union have condemned the murder.

The child has been identified as Wajdy Mustafa Ramahy, 14; he was shot by a live round to the back.
His father said that the child was playing with his friends near the main road that leads to the Bet El Israeli settlement and military base.
He was heavily bleeding, and died shortly after being moved to hospital despite all efforts to save his life.
The father and several eyewitnesses denied Israeli military claims that the soldiers opened fire at Palestinians who hurled stones at them, and said that the area witnessed no clashes until the soldiers shot the child dead.
