The Palestinian Detainees and Ex-Detainees Committee has reported, on Monday evening, that Israel intends to release the corpse of a Palestinian child from Bethlehem, who was killed by Israeli army fire on October 15, 2021.
The Committee stated that it filed an appeal with an Israeli court to release the corpse of the slain child, and received Monday, a verdict that authorized the release but without setting an actual timeframe.
It is worth mentioning that the child, identified as Amjad Osama Abu Sultan, 15, was killed by Israeli army fire in the Be’er Owna area, in Beit Jala city, west of Bethlehem, in the occupied West Bank.
The soldiers killed Amjad and injured another child, identified as Mohammad Khalil al-‘Arouj, 14, before taking him to an interrogation facility.
After killing Amjad and wounding Mohammad, the army issued a statement claiming that the soldiers fired live rounds at Palestinians when they allegedly tried to throw Molotov cocktails at the “Tunnels Road,” connecting Gush Etzion illegal colony with occupied Jerusalem.
