Eleven-year-old Mohammed al-Alaami of the West Bank village of Beit Ummar had an uncle, Amjad. Soldiers shot him in the head and killed him in March 2002 when he was standing in the doorway of his family home. He was 20, a press photographer.
“He wasn’t taking part in the fighting,” the website of the rights group B’Tselem states dryly. Soldiers killed Mohammed as well, on July 28, 2021, while he was riding in his father’s pickup truck.
