‘As it happened …’ report
by ray goodlass
No class today because Bethlehem is on strike and we are in mourning because during a raid on the Daisha Refugee Camp (also in Bethlehem) early this morning Israeli soldiers used live ammunition when firing on a group of stone throwing children, causing the death of 15 year old Arkan Thaer Mezher.
I’ve decided to dedicate our production of ‘As it happened, 5 micro plays of the ongoing Palestinian Nakba’ to his memory. He is yet another Palestinian martyr.
The full report of the atrocity, from the Ma’an News Agency, follows:
BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — A 15-year-old Palestinian child was killed while dozens of others were wounded by Israeli forces during violent clashes in the Dheisheh refugee camp in the southern occupied West Bank district of Bethlehem predawn Monday.
