The Palestinian News & Info Agency (WAFA) said the child, Mohammad was a six-grade student at Beit Ummar Basic School.

Nasri Sabarna, the Mayor of Beit Ummar town, said the father was driving with his son and daughter after they went grocery shopping; they bought bread, vegetables, and potato chips.

Sabarna added that the father then made a U-Turn trying to get to the shop before Israeli soldiers stationed nearby started shouting at the car and ordering him to stop before one of the soldiers opened fire at the car wounding the child in the chest.

The child later succumbed to his serious wounds, while his father and sister were not injured in the incident.

The Palestinian Education Ministry issued a statement denouncing his murder and called on all related human rights groups to intervene and end the escalating Israeli crimes against the unarmed Palestinian people, especially the children.

In related news, Israeli soldiers dug the grave of a deceased Palestinian newborn baby girl, just a few hours after her family buried her at the graveyard in Beit Ummar. The soldiers took the corpse out of the grave and placed it on the ground, before leaving the area.

Sabarna said that the Town Council contacted the family to informed them of what the soldiers did and to conduct the burial ceremony again.

His cousin said that Abdo was beaten up by the soldiers and added that the army abducted seven of his relatives for protesting his death.
