Israeli occupation on the evening of January 4th returned the body of an underage teenager it killed in November and held for 45 days.
Although the victim was from Jabal al-Mukaber in occupied East Jerusalem, the body was handed over at a checkpoint in Bethlehem district in the occupied West Bank.
17-year-old Abdul-Rahman Abu Jamal was shot and critically wounded by Israeli occupation police officers after he climbed over the fence surrounding occupation police station in Jabal al-Mukaber neighbourhood of East Jerusalem on November 14th.
Israeli occupation claimed that Abu Jamal had ‘stabbed’ and lightly injured three occupation police officers, while fourth one was moderately injured in friendly fire when the teen was shot. Israeli occupation photograph showing the knife he allegedly used had no blood in the blade but appeared to have some in the handle.
Abdul-Rahman was denied immediate first aid after he was shot and instead he was pinned on the ground with someone kneeling atop him, his head being pushed against the pavement with a leg.
He died of his wounds on November 20th. Some sources claim that he would have been shot and killed on October 20th, but this is an error.
Abu Jamal’s funeral took place late on Friday evening in as-Sawahira ash-Sharqiya village in part of East Jerusalem on the east side of the illegal Israeli Wall.
