Israeli Occupation Forces Shoot 7-Year-Old Palestinian In Jerusalem


JERUSALEM (Ma’an) –– Seven-year-old Anas Yahya Abdeen was reportedly shot with a rubber-coated bullet by Israeli soldiers on Friday evening in his house in the Ras al-Amud neighborhood east of the Old City of Jerusalem.According to his father, the boy was hit after Israeli troops stormed the house of Abd al-Razeq al-Salayma who allegedly drove his vehicle into a group of Israeli border police in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood earlier on Friday.

Anas was standing in the balcony opposite to the house of al-Salayma family when “all of the sudden he started to cry and shout, and we realized later that he was hit by a black rubber-coated bullet in his arm,” the father explained.

Separately, a young Palestinian man was shot with a rubber-coated bullet in his forehead during clashes in the Ein al-Luza area of the Silwan neighborhood southeast of the Old City, according to Majdi al-Abbasi of the Silwan-based Wadi Hilweh Information Center.

He added that clashes broke out in the area between young Palestinian men and Israeli troops, and that Israeli troops arrested a 14-year-old boy Mustafa Baydoun while he was standing outside his house in Baydoun area of Silwan, where clashes also ensued.

An Israeli police spokesman did not immediately return a call for information on the incident.

Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld informed Ma’an of heightened security measures to be taken throughout Jerusalem on Friday, following the alleged attack by al-Salayma.
