Another Day, Another Child

This is becoming almost a weekly occurrence:

A 14-year-old Palestinian boy died on Saturday after being wounded in a shooting incident involving Israeli soldiers in the northern border town of Beit Hanoun, Palestinian medical workers said.
They said Ghazi al-Zaaneen was seriously wounded on Friday night when Israeli soldiers fired shots towards a neighbourhood in the town.

His crime? Being Palestinian and near the border.

An Israeli army spokesperson has since announced an investigation into the incident, but by now we are cognisant that ‘investigation’ merely translates into ‘no regrets, procrastinate, then abandon’.

And somewhere, amidst the raging poverty and uncertainty, a family mourns the loss of their child.
