‘Another crime was added yesterday to the extensive list of Israeli occupation forces’ acts of aggression against Palestinians. The occupation does not care for the sanctity of Ramadan or even Palestinian life. Yesterday, its soldiers killed a Palestinian worker in cold blood.
Akram Badih Badr’s sole concern was getting to his place of work so he could earn a wage and buy food for his children and return home before sundown. This time, his return was blood-soaked.
On the al-Zaim checkpoint east of occupied Jerusalem, Israeli occupation forces killed Badr and injured two others, one of them critically. The soldiers opened fire on a car carrying workers on their way to Jerusalem.’
