A Palestinian toddler was pronounced dead on Monday after he succumbed to a critical bullet injury he sustained when Israeli occupation forces (IOF) opened fire at him last week in Nabi Saleh village, north of Ramallah in the occupied West Bank.
Two-year-old Mohamed al-Tamimi died of a bullet injury in his head last Thursday during an Israeli military raid into the village.
Since the start of 2023, the Israeli occupation forces have killed at least 159 Palestinians, including 28 children.
The death toll also includes 36 Palestinians killed by the Israeli army during the four-day aggression against the besieged Gaza Strip from May 9 to 13.
International humanitarian law prohibits targeting civilians and subjecting them to attack, whether a group or individuals and stresses respect for their lives, their physical and mental integrity, and their protection and humane treatment.
These serious human rights violations require urgent international intervention to hold those responsible for justice and provide protection to civilians during conflicts.
