It's just murder

On Tuesday a 10 year old boy, Ahmed Moussa, was murdered by an Israeli border policeman in the village of Ni'lin. Ahmed had gone with some of his friends to try and remove a barbed wire barricade from village lands. From a distance of 10 metres the policeman shot him in the head, using live ammunition.

In response to ongoing protests over the continuing theft of village land the Israeli authorities have issued new instructions permitting snipers to use live ammunition if no Israeli or foreign nationals are present.

Israeli military forces have now killed twelve Palestinians demonstrating against the theft of their land and the construction of the apartheid wall. Seven of those killed were children.
