Video footage contradicts Israeli army account of firing on Palestinian family’s car, killing 11-year-old boy

New video footage of the moment that Israeli soldiers opened fire on a Palestinian family’s car, killing their 11-year-old son, shows soldiers firing on the car as it was reversing, contradicting the army’s previous accounts of the events.

Last week Israeli forces shot and killed 11-year-old Mohammed al-Alami while he was in his father’s car with his two younger siblings, as the family were on their way home from grocery shopping in their town of Beit Ummar in the southern occupied West Bank.

At the time Israeli forces claimed that they attempted to stop the vehicle by firing warning shots in the air, and firing at the vehicle’s tires. The accounts of Mohammed’s father, and several eyewitnesses at the time contradicted the army’s statement, and said that the soldiers sprayed the car with bullets “out of nowhere,” and with no prior warning.
