Letter from Holy Land: Call for justice after Israeli forces kill two children

Dear ICN Readers,

On Monday, during an Israeli military incursion into Jenin refugee camp, Israeli forces shot and killed two Palestinian children, both 14 years old. Ahmad Saqer died Monday morning after an Israeli soldier shot him in the abdomen, and earlier today, Sadil Naghnaghieh died in Jenin Government Hospital, two days after an Israeli soldier shot her in the head as she filmed the military incursion on her phone from in front of her home.

Both of these children were shot and killed by Israeli forces in broad daylight, demonstrating that Israeli forces enjoy complete impunity and have no fear of repercussions. It is past time for global leaders to hold Israel accountable for killing Palestinian children.

Forward this message to your elected officials today and ask: What will they do to hold Ahmad and Sadil's killers accountable? What action will they take to prevent Israeli forces from continuing to kill Palestinian children without consequence?

Palestinian children have no time to lose.

In solidarity,

Ayed Abu Eqtaish
Accountability Program Director
