On Monday, Mohammad passed away due to a headshot wound. He was traveling with his father to visit relatives when they were fired upon by Israeli forces near their residence. According to Mohammad’s mother, he was a few months away from turning three.

The father, Haitham al-Tamimi, sustained a gunshot wound to the shoulder.

Upon inspection of my son’s location, I reported to the soldiers that he had been deceased. According to the mother, who was not present in the vehicle, the individuals warned her to “stand back, or we’ll shoot,” as reported by Reuters.

Per the Israeli military’s statement, soldiers retaliated with live fire in response to shots fired by attackers toward a Jewish settlement. This resulted in the injury of two Palestinians, including a child.

As per the Palestinian Office of Defense for Children International (DCIP) report, Al-Tamimi is among the 27 Palestinian minors who have lost their lives due to the military and settler operations carried out by Israel in the occupied West Bank and Gaza since January.

Based on Israeli statistics, three minors from Israel lost their lives simultaneously.

On Tuesday, Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh tweeted that continuing Israel’s offenses against the Palestinian people and children will persist without implementing accountability measures.

The U.S. Office for Palestinian Affairs has issued a statement urging Israel to assess all instances of lethal force that harm civilians. The report concurred with the EU delegation to the Palestinians and the United Nations envoy for the Middle East peace process, both of whom urged Israel to take responsibility for the death of al-Tamimi by holding those responsible accountable.
