Foreign Ministry to sue Israel at ICC for murder of Palestinian child

RAMALLAH, Friday, December 4, 2020 (WAFA) – The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates said today it will prosecute the occupying state of Israel before the International Criminal Court over the fatal shooting of Palestinian child Ali Ayman Abul-Alayya, 13, earlier today.

Abu-Alayya was announced dead tonight after he succumbed to wounds sustained in the abdomen from live ammunition fired at him by the Israeli occupation forces in his hometown village of Al-Mughayir, northeast of Ramallah, earlier today.

The Ministry called in a statement upon the ICC to open an immediate investigation into the crimes of the Israeli occupation and to ultimately hold Israeli war criminals to account.

It held the Israeli occupation’s government of Benjamin Netanyahu fully and directly responsible for today’s crime, which it said was a translation of the instructions of the political leadership in the occupying state to its forces, in a way that makes it easy for them to shoot Palestinian citizens without being punished.
