Palestinian cities on strike in protest of Al-Osaibi's execution
The Higher Follow-up Committee in the occupied Palestinian territories in 1948 condemns the cold-blooded execution of a 26-year-old Palestinian in Al-Aqsa Mosque.
The Higher Follow-up Committee in the occupied Palestinian territories in 1948 announced a general strike to be held on Sunday to condemn the cold-blooded execution of Palestinian youth Mohammad Al-Osaibi, 26, at the hands of Israeli occupation forces in Al-Aqsa Mosque.
On Friday evening, Israeli occupation forces opened fire at Al-Osaibi, from the town of Hura in Al-Naqab, at Bab Al-Silsilah, adjacent to Al-Aqsa Mosque.
The occupation forces detained the martyr's body in an unknown area.
The Israeli occupation claimed that the police shot Al-Osaibi under the pretext of attacking occupation forces and attempting to seize one of their weapons.
"Every security camera in the area was checked, and unfortunately the attack itself was not filmed by security cameras or by body cameras on the officers," the occupation police claimed in a statement.
However, Palestinian witnesses confirmed that Al-Osaibi intervened and tried to protect a young Palestinian woman who was attacked and prevented by the occupation police from entering Al-Aqsa Mosque.
The Israeli occupation police alleged that an investigation had found no footage of the crime next to Bab Al-Silsila, claiming that the attack happened in "a dead zone" that is not covered by security cameras.
Haaretz cited a police source as saying that it "doesn't make sense" that there was no video of the crime, as "it's unheard of for there to be no cameras" at Bab Al-Silsila.
