Palestine mourns 2 y.o Mohammad Tamimi, killed by 'Israel'
Grieving Palestinians turned out Tuesday to mourn a two-year-old Palestinian boy who was shot in the head when Israeli occupation forces opened fire indiscriminately while he was in his father's car.
A mourning ceremony was held in the grieving town of Nabi Saleh, northwest of Ramallah, where families gathered to lay to rest two-year-old Mohammad Haytham Tamimi, who died of the wounds he sustained when Israeli occupation forces opened fire on him and his father last Thursday evening.
The tiny casket was held by Palestinian children amid tears, remembrances, and angry calls for "Israel" to be held accountable for the daily atrocities against Palestinians, including children, as the world stands idle.
Tamimi was shot in the head when Israeli occupation forces opened fire indiscriminately while pursuing Palestinian youths who allegedly carried out a shooting operation against an occupation military post near the town of Nabi Saleh, Palestinian sources revealed. Both Mohammad and his father Haytham were wounded in the Israeli attack.
Al Mayadeen's correspondent reported that the two-year-old family was not able to open their house for mourning because of the occupation's measures.
Tamimi's grieving mother called via Al Mayadeen for an international court that would do Palestinian children justice.
"I witnessed my own child being executed by the occupation," she tearfully added.
Al-Tamimi's mother also stressed that Palestinians are being subjected to assault by the occupation on a daily basis, divulging that her family has received notices to demolish their home.
For his part, Tamimi's father said that "human rights organizations that are supposed to do children justice are unjust, and nothing will come of calling on them to take action."
With the martyrdom of 2-year-old Tamimi, the number of Palestinian children killed at the hands of Israeli occupation forces since the beginning of this year has risen to 28.
