Amir Abu Mosa’ed

January 11, 2018: Amir Abdul-Hamid Abu Mosa’ed, 16, was killed by Israeli soldiers who fired live rounds at Palestinian protesters, east of the al-Boreij refugee camp, in central Gaza.

Palestinian medical sources said the soldiers shot Amir with a live round in his chest, and added that the soldiers also shot three other Palestinians also with live fire, including one who suffered a life-threatening injury.

Media sources in Gaza said dozens of Palestinians marched on their lands, close to the border fence in central Gaza, before the soldiers fired many live rounds, in addition to gas bombs and rubber-coated steel bullets at them.

Many Palestinians suffered the effects of teargas inhalation, and received the needed medical treatment.

On the same day, the soldiers killed a child, identified as Ali Omar Nimir Qeino, 17, after the army fired live rounds at Palestinians who intercepted an attack carried out by colonialist settlers into Iraq-Burin village, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus.
