“Ali was shot on his 15th birthday by Israeli soldiers. He was in 10th grade. He still has his seat in class, and there are pictures of him hanging up on the wall.” — Marzouq Abu-Al-Ein, Ali’s School Principal

Ali Abu Alya’s fatal shooting occurred on 4 December near Al Mughayyir village (Ramallah), during clashes that erupted in a protest against the establishment of an Israeli settlement outpost. The Israeli authorities announced the opening of an investigation.

“Ali used to tell me everything, he loved sharing. He loved sports. He used to play in the streets, the house, and he played with our hearts.”
