Abdul-Rahman Abu Hamisha

July 28, 2017: Abdul-Rahman Hussein Abu Hamisha, 16, was killed by Israeli soldiers who fired live rounds at Palestinians protesting Israeli violations at the al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem.

The Ministry of Health in Gaza said Abu Hamisha was shot near al-Boreij refugee camp in central Gaza when Israeli troops opened fire on the protesters. The Ministry added that the soldiers wounded at least ten others in the area, and other parts of the Gaza Strip.

The injured were all said to have received bullet wounds from live ammunition fired by the Israeli soldiers.

The soldiers also fired teargas bombs, causing many Palestinians to suffer the severe effects of teargas inhalation. Two Palestinian medics were among those who had to be hospitalized for teargas inhalation.

Another young Palestinian man was shot in the foot and was taken to Shifa hospital, while others suffered from tear gas inhalation, after the soldiers attacked protesters near Nahal Oz military base, across the fence, east of Gaza City.

In Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, the soldiers fired live bullets and tear gas, injuring at least two youths with live bullets in their feet. The two children suffered moderate wounds, and were taken to Nasser Hospital in the city of Khan Younis. Abdul-Rahman was from al-Boreij refugee camp. Source: IMEMC
