On Tuesday, Israeli soldiers injured many Palestinians, including one shot with a live round, after the funeral ceremony of a child whom Israeli soldiers killed.
Media sources said hundreds of Palestinians participated in the funeral ceremony and procession of the slain child, Mohammad Haitham Tamimi, 3.
Bilal Tamimi, a local nonviolent activist against Israel’s illegal occupation and colonialist activities, said the soldiers shot a young man with a live round in the leg.
Tamimi added that the soldiers also shot another young man with a rubber-coated steel bullet in the face, and caused many Palestinians to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.
It is worth mentioning that the slain child, Mohammad, died from serious wounds Monday after Israeli soldiers shot him a week earlier in Nabi Saleh.
The child was shot in the head, and his father was shot in the shoulder last Thursday while standing in the front yard of their home near an Israeli military roadblock at the entrance of Nabi Saleh.
The seriously wounded child was rushed to Tal HaShomer Israeli Medical Center, where he was treated for his wounds but remained in critical condition until he succumbed to his injuries.
In Hebron, in the southern part of the West Bank, the soldiers caused many Palestinians to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation in Beit Ummar town, north of the city.
The soldiers fired many gas bombs and concussion grenades at Palestinians protesting the closure of the town’s main entrance.
