Child murdered by Israeli occupation forces in Al-Arroub refugee camp

A Palestinian child was shot dead by Israeli occupation forces this evening in the Al-Arroub refugee camp, in the southern West Bank province of Hebron, according to local and medical sources.

Israeli occupation soldiers fired live ammunition and toxic tear gas canisters at a group of young people and children during a raid into the camp, resulting in the critical injury of Milad Munther Al-Ra’i, 16 years old. Al-Ra’i was rushed to hospital for medical treatment, before he was pronounced dead about an hour later.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society said the child was shot in the back and chest during confrontations in the camp. Their medical teams performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) before transferring him to Al-Yamama Hospital in the city of Bethlehem, where he was pronounced dead.

Many other Palestinians suffocated from gas inhalation due to the use of toxic tear gas by the Israeli forces.

At least 200 Palestinians have been killed by the Israeli occupation forces so far this year.

This tragic incident once again underscores the excessive use of deadly force by Israeli occupation forces against Palestinian civilians, including children, and raises concerns about the safety and protection of Palestinian residents living under Israeli military occupation.
