A two-year-old Palestinian child, Mohammed Haitham Tamimi, succumbed to his injuries sustained from an attack by Israeli occupation forces.
The child and his father were shot on Thursday evening by Israeli forces in the village of Nabi Saleh, northwest of Ramallah.
According to activist Bilal Tamimi, an Israeli military unit set up an ambush for a vehicle at the entrance of the village.
They pursued and opened live fire at the vehicle, resulting in a bullet striking the two-year-old child in the head.
The father also sustained an injury in his shoulder.
The incident occurred while they were near their home, adjacent to an Israeli military checkpoint erected at the village entrance.
The death of Mohammed Haitham Tamimi highlights the devastating consequences of the ongoing Israeli occupation and the use of excessive force against innocent civilians, including children.
This tragic event serves as a painful reminder of the urgent need for a just resolution for the Palestinian people languishing under the barbaric Israeli occupation.
