Ahmad Abdullah Sharaka, 13 years old, was killed on Sunday October 11, 2015 by Israeli soldiers during clashes near the Beit El settlement.

He was rushed to the Palestinian Medical Complex in Ramallah where doctors operated on him, before he succumbed to his wounds.

According to Electronic Intifada, Ahmad quit school two years ago and his main focus became attending protests and confrontations in defiance of his family’s appeals. “He was committed to the struggle from a very young age,” his mother told The Electronic Intifada.

Ahmad’s family is from from the ethnically cleansed village of Beit Nabala near Lydd, in present-day Israel. His family lives in Jalazone refugee camp (north of Ramallah, in the West Bank), but Ahmad  dreamed of returning to his ancestral home. Qassam Dweik, Ahmad’s best friend, states, “Ahmad was not just the son of Jalzone refugee camp; he didn’t sacrifice his life for this or that political faction. He was the son of all of Palestine.”

Ahmad leaves behind his twin sister, Haneen, who finds it hard to accept that her other half is no longer alive.

“Ahmad’s friends remember him as incredibly generous and funny. He used to take them to the swimming pool and pay the fees himself.

Ahmad taught himself to swim. That’s no small feat for someone living in the crowded camps where there is little space for recreation. While his friends would find it hard to swim, Ahmad would encourage them and push them to continue and do their best.”

Ahmad’s funeral was attended by thousands.

Four Israelis and 24 Palestinians, including eight children, have died in 12 days of bloodshed, fuelled in part by Muslim anger over increasing Jewish access to the al-Aqsa mosque compound in Jerusalem and with Palestinians attacking Israelis with knives, rocks and, in at least one incident, guns.

A Palestinian teenager has been shot dead by Israeli forces during clashes at a checkpoint near Ramallah city, as more than a week of violence continues to grip Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories. 
Heavy clashes took place on Sunday in cities and villages across the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem, following weeks of protests sparked by tensions over the al-Aqsa Mosque compound.

Late afternoon on Sunday, Israeli forces shot Ahmad Abdullah Sharaka, 14, during clashes near an army checkpoint in the West Bank town of Al-Bireh. The rubber-coated metal bullet struck him behind the left ear. Doctors at the Palestine Medical Complex pronounced him dead from a severe brain hemorrhage about an hour after he arrived.

Tensions over access to the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem’s Old City escalated into tit-for-tat lethal attacks across East Jerusalem and the rest of the occupied West Bank. The mosque lies in a compound known to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary and to Jews as the Temple Mount. Both faiths consider the site sacred.

Palestinian incitement on the issue of Jerusalem

29 Oct 2014

Whereas Israel takes measures to maintain public order and uphold the delicate status quo on the Temple Mount, many on the Palestinian side exploit the holy sites to inflame passions and undermine the long-standing modus vivendi in the city.

Israel is committed to guaranteeing freedom of religion and access to all holy sites in Jerusalem. But whereas the Israeli authorities take measures designed to maintain public order and uphold the delicate status quo on the Temple Mount, there are many on the Palestinian side who exploit the holy sites in order to inflame passions and undermine the long-standing modus vivendi in the city.….

Already in 1929 the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, provoked the Arab population to fierce anti-Jewish riots by claiming that the Jews were threatening the mosque. Unfortunately, such rumors and conspiracy theories, which can be traced back to almost a century ago, still exist today.

It should be stressed that it is not only Hamas radicals who promote this inflammatory rhetoric. Officials of the Palestinian Authority, which pretends to be interested in reaching a peaceful settlement with Israel, have no qualms about exploiting the holy sites to advance their diplomatic goals.

Recent examples of this are the statements by the President of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, widely reported in the media on 17-18 October 2014, that the PA will not allow the “herd of settlers” to desecrate the Al-Aqsa mosque, and that the PA intends to take legal action in the international arena to prevent settlers from harming the mosque.

This was not the first time Abbas made such comments. In a speech he gave on 31 December 2013 at an event marking the anniversary of Fatah’s establishment, he warned that “the dangerous systematic attacks on the Al-Aqsa Mosque continue incessantly.”

Over the years, PA officials have repeatedly voiced the same preposterous libel which accuses Israel of devising plans to destroy the Al-Aqsa mosque.….

The following cartoon appeared in the PA official daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, on 18 October 2014:

SUMMARY

Ahmad Sharaka was killed during clashes near an army checkpoint in the West Bank town of al-Bireh, heavy clashes sparked by tensions over the al-Aqsa Mosque, violent clashes in which Sharaka threw rocks at Israeli troops and was subsequently shot and killed.
