Israeli policemen gunned down a Palestinian child to the northeast of Occupied Jerusalem on Friday evening.
The policemen, manning a road barrier at the entrance of Shufat refugee camp, opened fire at 16-year-old Mohammed Nabil Salam killing him instantly, Palestinian sources said.
The child’s name was voiced via mosques’ loudspeakers at the refugee camp where a general mourning was declared and all shops closed down.
Luba al-Samri, the Israeli police spokeswoman, claimed that the child was carrying a knife and tried to stab a policeman but was shot and “neutralized”, which is an Israeli term meaning that he was killed.
She said that Israeli security and police forces arrived at the scene to investigate the incident.
Eyewitnesses said that an Israeli policeman fired at the boy as soon as he disembarked from a bus and left him bleeding for half an hour before he was covered with a black cover indicating that he was dead.
The Israeli police closed the Shufat road barrier immediately after the incident and blocked traffic in both directions.
