BETHLEHEM, Thursday, September 29, 2022 (WAFA) – Beit Jala hospital today said a 7-year-old Palestinian child has died after falling from a high place while running away from Israeli soldiers who were chasing him in the Bethlehem area village of Toqou.
It said that the child, Rayyan Yaser Suleiman, was brought to the hospital after his heart has stopped and efforts to revive him have failed.
Suleiman, it said, ran away in fear from soldiers who chased him and other students after leaving their school causing him to fall from a high place.
However, Rayyan's father, Yaser, said later that the soldiers chased his son to their house, and because his son was so scared of the soldiers he tried to run away but apparently his heart stopped and he fell dead.
He said he put his son in his car to rush him to the hospital but was stopped by the soldiers who checked his son and when they found him dead, they let him continue to the hospital.
