The tragic death of Palestinian boy Rayan Suleiman has gripped and sent shock waves throughout Palestinian society.
Seven-year-old Rayan Suleiman passed away while being hounded by Israeli soldiers pursuing him and other Palestinian children in the village.
Hafez Ebrahim Moosa told Radio Islam International when the village was highly peaceful, Israeli soldiers raided the town, going door to door and seeking out children they had claimed were responsible for throwing stones at the soldiers.
The army pounded on the door of Rayan frantically and threatened to arrest the lads when they fled from the house. The youngest of the three brothers, Rayan, passed away just a short while later.
Rayan was pursued by the troops shouting at him as soon as he arrived at his home.
The soldiers shouted at him that he was a stone thrower, He ran away from one side, and the soldier met him from the other side of the house. Rayan saw the soldier in front of him, shocked, and dropped dead out of fear.
Meanwhile, we will see a full-blown Israeli offensive in the Occupied West Bank before the Israeli elections.
In the past week, Israeli forces have killed four Palestinians in a significant incident in the occupied city of Janine in the West Bank.
According to Hafez Moosa, The Israelis face two dilemmas, the elections are coming on November 1st, and the West Bank is a hotbed of resistance.
He said the Israelis are considering a full-blown operation on Janine or Nablus. Or they may be leaning toward fearing that if they embark on a full-blown operation, it will create chaos for those trying to get themselves elected.
“They are now perhaps considering pursuing more tactical and surgical operations in the use of drones on the resistance in the West Bank.”
