Israeli forces run over, arrest child for flying Palestinian flag on bicycle

Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- Israeli occupation forces chased and ran over a Palestinian child flying a Palestinian flag on his bicycle in Ras al-Amoud neighborhood in Occupied Jerusalem, local sources said.

At least six Israeli occupation officers chased the 15-year-old Jawad Abbasi while he was riding his bike and raising a Palestinian flag, running over him and causing him bruises in the leg for raising the flag, which the occupation authorities ban in the occupied capital.

Videos showed the child surrounded with at least six Israeli occupation officers holding machine guns, and the child got injured and was arrested by the forces before he was let go for medical treatment.

Israeli occupation continues to severely affect Palestinian children and youth, leaving them with a deep sense of insecurity, hopelessness, and frustration.

Israeli occupation forces and settlers have adopted numerous policies and practices against Palestinian children, in disregard of their humanity and their protected status under international law.

At least 279 Palestinians were killed, including 69 children and 40 women, and 1,910 others injured in Israel’s latest aggression on the Gaza Strip, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.

19 families in the Gaza Strip have also been wiped off the population civil registry, including 45 children, after the Israeli bombardment on residential areas.
