TEHRAN (Basirat): Israeli soldiers were photographed violently arresting a Palestinian boy with Down syndrome in the occupied West Bank city of al-Khalil.
This marks the second time Israeli forces assaulted a Palestinian with Down
syndrome after a similar incident took place during protests against US
President Donald Trump’s embassy move in December of last year, according to
Four Palestinians were killed Friday by Israeli forces in two separate incidents
near the Gaza-Israel buffer zone, according to Gaza’s Health Ministry.
The inhumane treatment of Palestinian civilians at the hands of Israeli soldiers
in the occupied West Bank comes as Israel steps up its attacks against peaceful
protesters near the Gaza Border in the context of the ongoing "Great March for
Return” demonstrations against Israeli occupation and oppression.
For almost four months, Palestinians in the Gaza Strip have been holding almost
daily demonstrations near the Gaza-Israel buffer zone.
Since the demonstrations began on March 30, more than 140 Palestinian protesters
have been martyred -- and thousands more injured -- by Israeli army gunfire.
Israeli forces then assaulted and detained Muhammad al-Taweel, who also suffers
from Down syndrome, in the occupied West Bank city of al-Khalil.
