Emergency demo at home of Jerusalem Chief of PoliceEmergency demo at home of Jerusalem Chief of Police Last Saturday, 9-year-old Malek Issa, was shot by the Israeli police. The horrifying event occurred when Malek, after getting off his school bus, went to buy a snack from the grocery just next door. The rubber-coated bullet that hit his eye caused serious injury to his skull and, of course, his eye. Unfortunately, it is most likely that he will be permanently blind in the eye that was hit. His family and concerned activists are still at his side in the hospital, praying for his recovery. The criminal shooting of a 9-year-old boy is just one of the many violent incidents carried out by Israeli police officers against the residents of Issawiya. On a daily basis, the Israeli police throw stun grenades, use gas, enforce roadblocks, and carry out arbitrary arrests in a residential neighborhood of more than 20,000 people. [ak] 20/2/2020
East Jerusalem child hit by police "sponge bullet" would lose one or both eyesTimes of Israel - A 9-year old boy, identified by his first name, Malek, is in serious condition in Jerusalem’s Hadassah Hospital. “He has a fractured skull, bleeding in the brain, his left eye has not yet been treated and he will probably lose it,” his father told Channel 13 TV news. “We don’t have much hope, they gave him a one percent chance of saving the eye.” Malek had been hit by what the Israeli Police insists on terming "a sponge bullet", actually a metal bullet tipped with some sponge. Following increased media attention, police said that its Internal Investigations Unit is probing the case. [By coincidence, PM Netanyahu this week ordered a probe of the Police Internal Investigations Unit itself, and efficacy of its interrogations - motivated not by concern for the Palestinian victims of police brutality, but by a desperate effort to gain the votes of the Israeli Ethiopian community in the March elections.
