JERUSALEM, Saturday, October 1, 2022 (WAFA) – The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates has strongly condemned the Israeli cold-blooded murder earlier today of Palestinian youth Fayez Khaled Damdum, 18, in the town of al-Eizariya, reiterating the call for international protection of the Palestinian people.
Fayez Khaled Damdum, 18, was reportedly killed by Israeli occupation forces who shot him in the neck while he was driving a motorbike in the town.
In a press statement, the Foreign Ministry said the killing of Damdum is ‘a continuation of the systematic and widespread policies of the occupation represented in field executions, willful and extrajudicial killings of our people, with the aim of inflaming the situation.’
The Ministry held the Israeli government fully and directly responsible for ‘this heinous crime and other crimes of the Israeli occupation’, stressing that it will work with all international organizations, including the United Nations, to document these crimes to hold the occupation accountable for all its crimes.
The Ministry urged the UN Secretary-General to activate the international protection system for our defenseless people.
