Basel Bassam Seder

October 14, 2015: Basel Bassam Seder, 17, was shot dead by Israeli police officers near Damascus Gate in East Jerusalem.

They fired more than 10 rounds at him as he was running away.

The Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) said its investigation revealed that the soldiers approached Seder, but he tried to avoid them and went down stairs of Damascus Gate.

A soldier shouted asking him to stop, but Seder ran faster, and the soldier opened fire at his back while shouting “Terrorist, terrorist”.

Seder was wounded and fell to the ground. A few minutes later, Israeli forces approached and fired about 10 bullets at him from a range of five meters or less.

Soon after, Palestinian civilians hurried up to the place, but Israeli forces repressed and dispersed them. Basel was from Hebron. Source: IMEMC
