Israeli forces shoot, kill 12-year-old Palestinian boy near Hebron

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- A 12-year old Palestinian boy was shot dead by Israeli soldiers while playing in front of his home in al-Fawwar refugee camp south of Hebron in the southern West Bank early Sunday, medics told Ma'an.

Palestinian medical sources at Hebron's al-Ahli Hospital told Ma'an that Khalil Muhammad Ahmad al-Anati arrived at the hospital after being shot in the back.

They said that the gunshot entered through the victim's lower abdomen and exited through his groin.

Doctors tried their best to resuscitate the boy and stop severe bleeding, but they announced his death shortly after he arrived in the emergency room.

Locals told Ma'an that shortly before the boy was killed an Israeli military force escorted Israeli engineers into a neighborhood known as Nabat al-Haffara for unknown reasons.

"We don't know what they (the Israelis) were doing," Yussef al-Anati told AFP, crying, his shirt soaked in blood after carrying his nephew to hospital.

"Khalil was playing in front of the house, then we heard gunfire. The kid was screaming and fell down," he said. "He was shot in the back and the bullet exited through his stomach."

A few young men hurled stones at the soldiers in response to the military incursion, and the soldiers subsequently opened fire at the boys, locals said.

A bullet hit al-Anati while he was standing in front of his home.

He was evacuated to the hospital in a private car.

AFP gave a conflicting report of his age, quoting medics as saying he was 11.

Al-Fawwar is located south of Hebron near an Israeli military checkpoint that divides a number of local Palestinian communities close to the local illegal Israeli settlement of Haggay.

At least 17 Palestinians have been killed across the West Bank in the last month, amid widespread public anger and growing protests over an Israeli assault on Gaza that has killed more than 1,915 Palestinians in the last four weeks.

An Israeli military spokeswoman did not return calls seeking comment.

The West Bank needs rockets to protect it's people. What was it "Israel" said? No weapons no attacks? No Hamas, no wars? BS

Please do not throw stones at armed soldiers, and tell your cousin and uncle in Gaza, not to fire rockets at an armed sovereign state. In both cases they are known to retaliate with violence.

Khalil Muhammad Ahmad al-Anati, was shot in the back by the IDF and subsequently died, because he was a Palestinian living in the occupied W.Bank. There is no other reason or explanation for it, was this child carrying a gun, or explosives? No, so that means he wasn't an enemy combatant, he was a civilian standing outside his house. One more martyr, one more war crime!!! Palestine, go to the ICC NOW!!!

Another child sacrificed on the alter of zionism. As long as this has been happening, it must never get boring. Maybe this is the IDF equivalent of bar mitzva - your not a man until you have murdered a Palestinian child.

I am a Christian. I am opposed to Islam. But what Israel is doing on the west bank and in Gaza is an absolute disgrace. These people do not deserve to be considered a civilised people. To shoot unarmed children in the back makes them no better than ISIS in Iraq. Time to give Israel a taste of their own medicine.

Pallywood, you can't compare the Israeli-Palestinian situation to the Syrian civil war or religiously motivated tribal conflicts in the Africa's. Neither of those factions have been keeping a group of 1.8 million people detained in what is arguably a Nazi era ghetto, all the while claiming they take humanitarian measures to avoid killing civilians.

Using a shotgun to kill a fly, in this case a bystander. And we are pissed about downed passenger plane over russia? ..they are throwing rox, cant solders use rubber bullets and tear gas. Live rounds instead. Wtf? In which civilized country do u ever see police using live rounds against the demonstrators and protestors.

It is neither heroic nor honourable nor even reasonable for a soldier wearing full ballistic protection gear to shoot a child for tossing rocks. The shooter must be sub-human.

The murderous Zionists' thirst for Palestinian blood is mind boggling. How sick & obscene this murderous Zionist society is when they sadistically cheer & dance when their so called "defense" force intentionally kill innocent women & children in Gaza. 489 children murdered by the so called Zionist "defense" force according to UN statistics.

The civil wars in Syria, the turmoil in Egypt & Iraq and across the Arab world are all linked to the creation of the illegal Zionist entity called "Israel" in 1948. This is what the US, UK & France who were former colonial powers in their lands want. Propping up of dictators in these countries so that their interests & that of the Zionist entity can be safeguarded.
