Two Palestinian Children Shot by Israeli Occupation in Jerusalem

Al-Quds, MINA – Two Palestinians identified as Nasim Mokafeh Abu Romi (14) and Hamoudah Khader Al Shaikh (15) from the occupied city of Ezareyah, Jerusalem, died after being shot by Israeli occupation forces at the Al-Aqsha Mosque Genealogy gate on Thursday night.

Palestine Post 24 reported quoted by MINA, according to sources, one of two Palestinian children was declared dead at the scene, while the second was seriously injured and taken to hospital, where he was declared dead.

This incident occurred when Israeli occupation forces restricted the Palestinians who entered the Al-Aqsa Mosque and allowed hundreds of Israeli Jewish settlers to desecrate the Muslim’s first mecca.

The two children then entered the gate of the genealogical gate of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and then stabbed the Israeli occupation army which forbade Muslims from entering the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

The occupation army responded by firing the two children to death.

This stabbing action was also a response of Muslims in Baitul Maqdis to the attack of the occupying forces who escorted illegal settlers into the Al-Aqsha Mosque to provoke Muslims on the Eid Adha holiday, which injured at least 65 people.

After this incident, the Zionist occupation army closed all entrances to the Al-Aqsha Mosque, and resulted in Muslims having to perform maghrib prayers in front of the entrance. (T/Ais/P2)
