Child Killed by Mishandled Weapon in Beit Hanoun

  

Field Update

 

On Thursday afternoon, a child was mistakenly killed by a live bullet in his head when he mishandled a firearm belonging to his relative in Beit Hanoun, north of the Gaza Strip. This incident is part of proliferation of weapons and assault on the rule of the law in the occupied Palestinian territories (oPt).

According to investigations conducted by the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR), at approximately 12:05 on Thursday, 14 September 2017, Mohamed Salah Hamed Naser (16), from Deir al-Balah in the central Gaza Strip, was admitted to the Beit Hanoun Governmental Hospital, as a dead body. Mohamed was hit with a live bullet that penetrated his mouth and exited from his head. The bullet was mistakenly unleashed from a firearm belonging to his relative in his house in Hamad Street, in Beit Hanoun.

The Palestinian police arrived at the scene and opened an investigation into the incident.

PCHR calls upon the Attorney General to open an investigation into the incident and calls upon the competent authorities to take the necessary measures to protect civilians from the danger of weapons.
