AMMAN, Jordan (Ma’an) – The son of a Jordanian Palestinian judge who was shot by Israeli troops at the Allenby Bridge crossing earlier in March died Saturday evening in Amman.

Family members told Jordan’s daily al-Ghad newspaper that 6-year-old Alaa Raed Zieter died of a chronic disease. His doctor refused to give details.

The boy’s body was laid to rest Saturday in a cemetery in Tabarbour neighborhood in the Jordanian capital.

His father, Raed Alaa Addin Zieter, was shot dead by an Israeli soldier at crossing on March 10. Zieter was a judge at a magistrate court in Amman and was on his way to a visit to his town of origin Nablus.

The Jordanian government demanded that Israel provide it with a full report detailing the incident, and to open an investigation and inform Jordan of its results.
