ALRESALAH.PS-- This time, the crime of the Israeli occupation was not an ordinary one, but rather an execution of humanity.
Israeli Occupation Forces IOF pursued the 32-year-old Palestinian handicap Iyad Hallaq, who was diagnosed with autism, killing him in cold blood, while he was going back to his private school after it had been closed for many weeks.
Hallaq was happy for he will return to his school, as he left his house without telling his mother, carrying his bag on his shoulder and holding his doll with his hand.
As soon as he reached Asbat door in Jerusalem, IOF began provoking him and yelling at him, and demanded that he show the doll that he carried.
He felt afraid, did not understand them, and fled to his school. As soon as he reached the hygiene room, they shot him with 8 bullets that penetrated his body and killed him instantly.
In the young man's bag, a paper stating that he is a person with special needs. However, the barbarism of the Israeli occupation when they shouted at him making flee to his school to take refuge in it. Yet, Israeli soldiers preceded him without regard to his condition despite the fact that the place is known to people with special needs.
"Iyad is the only son of mine. I used to feel fear for him and protect him. He is like an angel," said Iyad's mother, a woman over sixties, who lives with her family in Wadi Al-Joz.
Crying over her son, she said : “ at morning, my daughter waked me up saying Iyad is not at home. Few minutes later, we've been informed Israeli occupation forces shot him. We got out searching for him. We got sure he was killed when I reached the Asbat gate.. "
"What did he do to be killed like that? Why did not they search his bag? Why did they kill him directly?. His dream was to pray at Al-Aqsa Mosque." Mother added.
Hallaq was killed without knowing why. He left his mother crying for her innocent child as she describes him, as he was suffering from slow growth, and he had a hearing problem, where his thinking did not exceed the thinking of a seven-year-old child.
The martyrdom of the young man was not easy, as he aroused the anger of the Palestinians, especially as he was with special needs, as a wave of anger prevailed on social media sites.
The occupation police claimed that they suspected the young man, Hallaq, that he was carrying a pistol and shot him after he tried to escape, refusing to obey orders to stop, and it later turned out that he was not armed but was carrying his doll and cell phone.
According to eyewitnesses, the young man escaped from the police and hid in a garbage dump on a road without exit, where the vehicles of the cleaners are stopped.
The witnesses added that a police force who was called to the scene fired at least six bullets towards the young man and killed him.
For his part, the director of the Independent Commission for Human Rights, Ammar Dweik, said: The Israeli occupation, after al-Aqsa revolt, made major changes to the shooting instructions for the soldiers and the border guards.
He pointed out that the Israeli judiciary tolerated the Israeli killers, as happened with the martyr Abdel-Fattah Al-Sharif, where he gave reduced sentences that are not commensurate with the size of the crime committed, noting that the occupation soldiers operate in an atmosphere of lack of accountability to them; what encourages them to belittle the lives of Palestinians.
He emphasized that direct fire comes in the context of field executions; because he implemented a ruling outside the framework of the law, indicating that reports were filed by several Palestinian human rights institutions to the International Criminal Court in this regard.
