Ryan Suleiman, a 7-year-old Palestinian boy, was killed today (Thursday) from a fall from a height in the village of Toku near Bethlehem.
The Palestinian Authority accuses the IDF forces of being responsible for his death on the grounds that they "chased the boy". The IDF said they had nothing to do with the incident.
The incident itself began earlier when Palestinians threw stones at the IDF force in a stuck area. The same suspects fled into their village and a military force chased them and later lost eye contact with them. As a result, searches began in the area, during which the soldiers noticed a father with several children on a balcony.
The force will ask the father if his children will throw stones.
During the conversation, the soldiers explained that if it was indeed them, they would not throw stones anymore.
After the force retreated the father called them back and then the case of the fall was reported to the Red Crescent.
During the entry of the soldiers into the house, there was no access between the force and the child.
Suleiman was taken to Beit Jala hospital in a very serious condition.
The Palestinian Ministry of Health announced that "the efforts of the medical teams to revive him were unsuccessful" and that the boy "arrived at the hospital when his heart had already stopped beating."
In Palestinian reports as well as in the statement of the Palestinian Ministry of Health, it is claimed that the boy fell from a height during a chase carried out by the Israeli security forces in the village of Toku, east of Bethlehem.
A security source told the Palestinian news agency "Wafa" that "soldiers chased school students when they were returning home, which led to the fall of Ryan from a height."
Musa Sha'ar, the head of the village council, Tokou said that "soldiers chased the boy in the area of the schools in the village, he suffered serious wounds and was taken to the hospital for treatment."
According to him, "the incident happened during an attempt by the soldiers to suppress a demonstration by students from the village who were happy about the Jenin events yesterday."
The Palestinian Prime Minister, Muhammad Ashtia, said that he demands international organizations "press the occupation to stop the persecution, arrests and killing of Palestinian children". Innocent children."
The IDF spokeswoman stated that there is no connection between the death of the minor and the activities of the security forces in the area. "A number of suspects threw stones at civilians on a main traffic route, earlier today, near the village of Teko in the area of the Etzion regional division," the IDF said.
"The IDF soldiers searched for the suspects who fled into the village.
During the searches, there were no confrontations and there was no use of explosives or means to disperse demonstrations. There is a claim about the death of a minor. From a preliminary examination, it appears that no connection was found between his death and IDF activity in the area.
The details of the incident are being investigated."
