Today, Saturday, a Palestinian man died of his injuries as he was shot with occupation police bullets, in the occupied city of Jerusalem.
His brother Abdelrahman Al-Sharif shared a video in which he said, “I announce on Saturday, the death of my brother Walid Al-Sharif, 23, due to critical wounds sustained by Israeli bullets shot at him on the third Friday of Ramadan inside Al-Aqsa Mosque.”
On April 22, Al-Sharif was shot with live bullets directly in the head, which caused fractures in the skull and severe bleeding in the brain. He was then transferred to hospital for treatment, where he remained in a coma until his death.
Following his death, the Israeli occupation police did not hand over his body to his family and transferred it from Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital to the Abu Kabir Institute of Forensic Medicine for an autopsy, which the family refused and demanded the authorities to hand him over for burial.
On Friday, the third week of Ramadan, The occupation forces stormed the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque, and assaulted worshipers in the courtyards and inside the prayer hall, recording dozens of serious injuries sustained by live and rubber bullets, as well as causing many cases of suffocation.
Al-Sharif’s death comes three days after the occupation forces assassinated Al-Jazeera correspondent in Palestine, journalist Shireen Abu Aqleh, who was shot in the head by an Israeli sniper, leading to her instant death.
Many Palestinians have been killed with Israeli occupation bullets during this month, as part of an escalation campaign against Palestinians in the occupied city of Jerusalem and the West Bank.
