A Palestinian youth with disabilities was martyred by the Israeli occupation forces, yesterday morning, near the door of the tribes in the Old City of occupied Jerusalem.

The Palestinian News Agency (Wafa) reported that the occupation forces opened fire in cold blood on Iyad Al-Hallaq (30 years old), who is a handicapped, and studies at Al-Bakriyah-Alwain Foundation for Special Education in occupied Jerusalem.

She added that the occupation forces left the young barber bleeding on the ground, and prevented anyone from approaching him, until he rose as a martyr.

The occupation forces closed the main doors leading to the Old City of occupied Jerusalem, and stormed the house of the martyr in the Wadi al-Joz neighborhood.
