Israeli soldiers killed, Monday, a young Palestinian man near Bad Hotta, one of the gates of the al-Aqsa Mosque, in occupied East Jerusalem, reportedly after he attacked officers, wounding one.
Eyewitnesses said the soldiers fired a barrage of live rounds at the young man, inflicting serious wounds, before closing the area, and prevented Palestinian medics from approaching him.
One of the medics, identified as Emad Hijazi, of the Al-Amal Society For Medical Services, said that he and his colleagues were praying at the Al-Aqsa Mosque when they hear several shots nearby and rushed to the scene.
Hijazi added that the Israeli soldiers and police officers assaulted him and his colleagues, before forcibly removing them from the area.
The Palestinian eventually bled to death after being denied the urgently needed medical treatment, while Israeli medics tended to the wounded officer, 19, who sustained a moderate injury. (...)
