Zionist Police Kill Palestinian Teen in Jerusalem after Alleged Stabbing
A Palestinian teen was shot and killed by Israeli police near the Damascus Gate of occupied East Jerusalem’s Old City on Saturday, marking the tenth Palestinian to be killed in the last 24 hours.
The teen, identified as Ishaq Badran, 16, from Kafr Aqab, was killed after carrying out an alleged stabbing attack in the area.
An Israeli police spokesperson told Ma’an news agency that “a man was stabbed, possibly two,” before Israeli security forces arrived on the scene, shooting and killing the alleged attacker.
Initial Israeli reports say the two Israelis were left with light injuries.
Israeli forces dispersed crowds of Palestinians gathered at the scene with tear gas and sound bombs.
The teen’s martyrdom brings the total number of Palestinians killed since Oct. 1 to 17.
Four Israelis, including two settlers, have been killed in the same time period.
