“They asked us to leave while Mohammad was bleeding on the floor”

Jerusalem24 – The United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Tor Wennesland said in a tweet on Monday that the killing of Palestinian youth Mohammad Ibrahim Al-Shaham “requires an immediate, thorough, and independent investigation.”

Wennesland expressed his condolences to the family of Shaham, and said that he is deeply disturbed by the killing of Shaham by Israeli forces at his home in Kafr Aqab in “disputed circumstances.”

21-year-old Shaham died after he was shot in the head point-blank by Israeli forces Monday morning while in his house in Kafr Aqab, northwest occupied Jerusalem.

According to Shaham’s parents, he received no medical treatment at the scene, despite Israeli soldiers telling Shaham’s mother they entered the house and shot him in the head “by mistake.”

In an interview with Al-Qastal News, Shaham’s sister said that they were asleep when Israeli forces stormed their home before dawn, and asked everyone to leave the house while Mohammad was bleeding on the floor.
