Eyewitnesses reported that confrontations broke out in the town of Abu Dis between the youths and the occupation forces who fired live bullets directly targeting the Palestinian youths. Yamen was shot as a result and left to bleed to death.
Witnesses confirmed that the Israeli occupation forces also prevented Palestinian ambulance workers from reaching Yamen and providing him with emergency medical care that may have saved his life. The occupation forces then arrested him and took him to an unknown destination.

Simultaneously, social media activists took to the social media platforms to express their rage over the murder of the Palestinian child and the western hypocrisy which was blatantly exposed in Ukraine reporting.
The Israeli forces dispersed a peaceful protest this evening in Jerusalem & shot Yamen Jafal 15yrs. Then, they fired tear gas at the ambulances to prevent his rescue. Later, they kidnapped the injured child & killed him away from the cameras. This Bedtime story is not from #Kyiv! pic.twitter.com/363O6iYcjH— Ramy Abdu| رامي عبده (@RamAbdu) March 6, 2022
Social media users have also urged the world to stand in solidarity with Palestine and Palestinians who have been under occupation for 70 years.

I hope that you will not differentiate between Palestinian children and Ukrainian children in your support pic.twitter.com/Xy9prRbjog
It is worth mentioning that the Israeli occupation has recently altered its code of conduct regarding live bullet firing to include the shooting of those who throw rocks and Molotov cocktails with live ammunition. The occupation is permitted to continue firing live bullets even after local youths are in the process of withdrawing from their positions.
