HRW: “More Palestinian Children Will Be Killed” Unless Israel Pressured to Change Course

HeadlineAug 29, 2023

A young Palestinian man has died of his wounds nearly two months after he was shot in the head during an Israeli army raid in the occupied West Bank. Twenty-year-old Ezzedin Kanan was from the town of Jaba outside the city of Jenin. He’s one of at least 172 Palestinians killed by Israeli forces since the start of the year. Human Rights Watch warns 2022 was the deadliest year for Palestinian children in the West Bank in 15 years, and this year is on track to meet or exceed last year’s levels. HRW added in a statement, “Unless Israel’s allies, particularly the United States, pressure Israel to change course, more Palestinian children will be killed.”
