A Palestinian mother called the Israeli police to help her son with a mental illness. They shot him instead.

When Itaf Anabtawi called the police to her home in the Wadi Nisnas neighborhood of Haifa on the morning of March 29th, she never imagined that it would result in the death of her son, Munir.

Itaf had just returned home after a week-long stay in the hospital, and says she was lovingly welcomed back home by her 33-year-old son Munir, who his family said had a mental illness.

“He kept telling me that he loved me and missed me so much while I was gone,” Itaf told Mondoweiss from the living room of her home, surrounded by mourning relatives.

According to Itaf, Munir, who receives routine medical treatment for his illness in the nearby neighborhood of Kiryat Eliezer, seemed like he had not been taking his medication.
