The father of 12-year-old Palestinian Muhammad al-Durrah, who was killed in cold blood by Israeli gunfire in the year 2000, has now buried more family members who lost their lives in the ongoing Israeli war on the besieged Gaza Strip.
Muhammad and his father, Jamal were filmed crouching behind a concrete block on a street corner in Gaza as Israeli forces showered them with heavy gunfire. The little boy later died on his father’s lap.
On Sunday, 23 years after his son’s murder, Jamal al-Durrah lost his brothers in Israel’s ongoing deadly bombing campaign on Gaza. Jamal says that his son’s footage is a testament to hundreds of Israeli murders of Palestinians, which largely go undocumented.
