RAMALLAH, Monday, November 08, 2021 (WAFA) – US Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib has called on the US to stop enabling the killing of Palestinian children.
Tlaib, the first Palestinian-American woman elected to the Congress, made her call as she condemned the killing of 13-year-old Mohammed Da‘adas, a resident of the Askar refugee camp in Nablus, who was shot in the stomach during a post-prayer confrontation with Israeli forces in Deir al-Hatab village, east of Nablus, that has become the site of repeated attacks by Israeli settler-colonists over the past month.
Rashia responded to the teen’s killing by re-tweeting: “Our country must stop enabling the killing of children.”
Da'das was hit by a live bullet in the stomach, and was rushed to hospital, when doctors found that his heart had already stopped. The child was announced dead shortly following his admission to hospital.
