Israeli Soldiers do what they do best…Shoot little helpless Palestinian children
Muhammad Jamal Ubeid, a Palestinian child, is severely injured after Israeli forces shot a rubber bullet at him on December 24, 2014.
According to media reports, the incident took place on Wednesday when Muhammad Jamal Ubeid and his 14-year-old sister were exiting a school bus near their home in the al-Issawiya neighborhood of East al-Quds.
“An Israeli soldier fired a black rubber-coated bullet at the child from a close distance, injuring him under the eye,” Palestinian media quoted Muhammad’s uncle as saying.
The Palestinian child was transferred to a nearby hospital.
Muhammad’s uncle also said there were no clashes between Palestinians and Israelis in the area at the time of the shooting attack.
Al-Issawiya and other East al-Quds neighborhoods have been the scene of Palestinian protests against the Israeli regime’s occupation in recent weeks.
In November, Saleh Samer Attiyeh Mahmoud, an 11-year-old Palestinian boy, also lost his left eye after Israeli forces shot a sponge bullet at his face.
On December 23, the Palestinian Center for Human Rights said Israeli forces carried out systematic attacks against Palestinian civilians and their properties in the occupied Palestinian territories between December 11 and 17 this year.
