JCSER: Settlers guard killed Ayyash in called blood

Print PDF

Jerusalem - A settlers' guard killed the Palestinian boy Milad Ayyash, 16, of Silwan on May 13 in Silwan village near the settlers building known as Beit Yonatan.

The building which was illegally built is inhabited with settlers and located in the heart of the Palestinian neighborhood of Silwan. Over the past few years, several court decisions were issued for evacuating the building and sealing it, however none of them was implemented.

Eyewitnesses reports to JCSER that the window of the third floor of the building was opened and later they heard gun shots. Afterwards, Ayyash felt on the ground after sustaining injuries in the stomach.

They added that they couldn't reach him for four hours because of the extensive tear gas which was fired in the area by the police who were stationed on the roof of the building.

Following his transfer al-Makkased Hospital, he underwent surgery operation for 7 hours, but later was considered clinically dead. His death was announced in the early hours of the next day.

According to medical reports, the Palestinian boy sustained injuries with a high velocity bullet which penetrated the right part of his abdomen which damaged his intestines.

On his part, Israeli Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch said yesterday: "We don't know who fired the shots. The hospital claims to have bullet shells, but it refused to relay them." Police officers said that the refusal of the victim's family to allow an autopsy has hampered the investigation. "

The death of Ayyash raises many questions about the role of private security guards employed by the Israeli government to protect settlers living in the heart of large Palestinian neighborhoods.

JCSER believes that settlement enclaves in Palestinian neighborhoods form hubs of violence and pose permanent threats to the safety of Palestinian neighbors and their right to life. "Killing the boy in cold blood instead of arresting him is a blatant breach to international law."

JCSER called upon the Israeli authorities, the occupying power, to open an immediate investigation in the incident in order to bring before justice the killers and honor its obligation in protecting the Palestinians population of Jerusalem who are protected civilians under international law.
