On the same day, the soldiers shot and injured 41 Palestinians, including several children, during protests on Palestinian land near the fence, commemorating the 52nd anniversary of the burning of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, in occupied Jerusalem.

The holy site was burnt, on August 23rd, 1969, by Denis Michael Rohan, a fanatic Australian citizen.

Israel arrested Rohan, before alleging that he was “insane”, and hospitalized him in a mental institution, and on May 14th, 1974, he was released and deported on what Israel called “humanitarian grounds, further psychiatric treatment near his family”.

On Tuesday at dawn, Israeli soldiers invaded Balata refugee camp, east of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, and killed a child, identified as Emad Hashash, 15, while he was on the rooftop of his home.
