Jerusalem: Israeli occupation forces fire at Palestinian youth after lying helplessly on ground

Jerusalem (The Inside Palestine)-A Palestinian man was shot at by Israeli forces after he was captured for allegedly carrying out a stabbing attack against two Israeli officers in occupied Jerusalem.

The man was shot at point-blank range by forces in the Old City and was taken to a hospital in a moderate condition, local reports said.

Footage shows a police officer shooting at the Palestinian man despite him already lying prone on the ground.

Seven other Palestinians were detained after clashes broke out when Israeli forces raided the nearby town of Abu Dis, Palestinian news agency Wafa reported.

During the raid, Israeli forces fired live and rubber-coated steel bullets, tear gas canisters, and stun grenades at residents, shooting and injuring a man in the face with a rubber bullet.

Forces reportedly detained seven people after they cordoned off a building in the town.

Last night, a 16-year-old Palestinian was killed after Israeli fire after forces raided the town.

Yamen Jaffal, was shot and then detained by Israeli forces who prevented him from getting medical attention. He subsequently succumbed to his wounds.

Rights groups have constantly slammed Israeli forces for showing “appalling disregard for human life” by using “reckless and unlawful lethal force” against Palestinians.

Amnesty International has repeatedly urged an end to the “worrying rise in unlawful killings by Israeli forces, fostered by a culture of impunity”.
