Last Saturday, 9-year-old Malek Issa, was shot by the Israeli police. The horrifying event occurred when Malek, after getting off his school bus, went to buy a snack from the grocery just next door. The rubber-coated bullet that hit his eye caused serious injury to his skull and, of course, his eye. Unfortunately, it is most likely that he will be permanently blind in the eye that was hit. His family and concerned activists are still at his side in the hospital, praying for his recovery.

The criminal shooting of a 9-year-old boy is just one of the many violent incidents carried out by Israeli police officers against the residents of Issawiya. On a daily basis, the Israeli police throw stun grenades, use gas, enforce roadblocks, and carry out arbitrary arrests in a residential neighborhood of more than 20,000 people. This continuous bullying and violence against residents leads to injuries and to a daily reality of dread and fear.

Today Thursday Feb.20 we will demonstrate in front of the home of Jerusalem chief of police Doron Yedid. We will demand he take action against the officer who shot 9-year-old Malek, and call for an end of the brutal violence against the residents. We will stand together in solidarity with the residents of Issawiya against oppression and against violence. We refuse to remain silent in the face of criminal shootings of children.
