Ahmad Husam Yousef Mousa, 10 years old, was murdered yesterday as he demonstrated together with his friends against the separation wall which is being constructed on the lands of his village Ni'ilin. When Ahmad and his friends reached the construction site the soldiers shot rubber bullets at them and they began to
retreat. At that point one of the soldiers shot a live round at Ahmad's head from a distance of about 10 meters.

When Ahmad and his friends reached the construction site the soldiers shot rubber bullets at them and they began to retreat. At that point one of the soldiers shot a live round at Ahmad's head from a distance of about 10 meters.

During the demo earlier in the day*, 18 demonstrators were injured.

During 6 years of popular struggle against the wall, the occupation forces have killed 11 demonstrators, 7 of them children, and thousands were injured. Time and time again, soldiers violently suppress demonstrations and attack those who take part in them with lethal weapons. To date, none of the soldiers who killed demonstrators has been prosecuted.

Today, Wednesday we will set out to protest the murder of 10 year old Ahmad in front of the home of defense minister Ehud Barak in Tel Aviv.

Stop the Killing, Stop the Occupation !

We'll meet at 18:30 at El Al terminal,Tel Aviv central train station (Arlozorov)

From there we will march to the Akirov towers on Pinkas street where Barak lives.


* A delegation of the Anarchists Against the Wall - who participated in that demonstration - has been invited to attend the funeral.
