ISRAEL KILLS 15-YEAR-OLD IN DEHEISHE REFUGEE CAMP ON THE OCCUPIED WEST BANK

15-year-old Akram Tha’er Mizhir was killed on Monday July 23rd by Israel’s occupation forces in the occupied West Bank.

Israel’s occupation forces invaded the Deheishe refugee camp near Bethlehem at dawn, ransacking homes, and when they were faced with stone-throwing youths opened fire with both live and rubber-coated steel bullets and threw concussion grenades and tear gas grenades.

During the confrontation with the occupying soldiers Akram Mizhir was shot in chest and taken to a hospital in nearby Beit Jala, he either died of his wounds or was pronounced dead at arrival. According to one source the teenager would have been shot in his heart.

Two young men were wounded in their legs by Israel’s occupation solders and at least 2, possibly 3, other young men were kidnapped by the Israeli occupation forces. The latter have been identified as Mohammad Adnan Abu Ayyash and Jamal Sar’awi.

Dozens of people also suffered from effects of inhaling tear gas.

The killing of the teen boy was followed by a demonstration taken part by hundreds condemning his killing. His funeral has been also claimed to have been participated by hundreds, but videos and photographs imply that several thousands of people took part.

(As usual, there are several transliteration’s of the victim’s name, including Arkan Thaer Mezher. His age has also been reported as 14 and 17 by individual sources, but as all other sources agree to him being 15, we consider it best to use this as his age.)
