Al-Sarif was seriously injured and unconscious when Israeli police detained him and carried him out of the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, despite the need for emergency medical treatment.

According to the brother of the slain young man, Abdul Rahman Al-Sharif, “it was announced on Saturday that my brother Walid al-Sharif, 23, succumbed to critical wounds sustained by Israeli bullets.”

Al-Sharif, from the town of Beit Hanina, north of occupied Jerusalem was shot by Israeli police, assaulted and then detained, despite being unconscious.

The rubber-coated steel round had caused a severe skull fracture and bleeding in the brain, causing him to be in a coma over the past three weeks.

Denying medical care to those injured is a common practice of the occupation, with no regard to the human rights of the Palestinian people, not to mention the shooting and assault of unarmed civilians.
