VIDEO: An Israeli soldier seizes a Palestinian boy's bicycle and throws it in the trash
The recording was broadcast this Tuesday on social networks and shared by several pro-Palestinian organizations.
An Israeli soldier was filmed confiscating a child’s bicycle and throwing it next to a garbage container in the Jaber neighborhood, south of the West Bank city of Hebron, an Israeli-occupied Palestinian territory.
The recording, broadcast this Tuesday by the Quds News Network, was shared on Twitter by the pro-Palestinian NGO Institute for Middle East Understanding (IMEU).
Israeli soldiers steal a Palestinian child’s bicycle. Palestinian children deserve to play. They deserve to be free and safe. Instead, they are tormented, harassed, and killed by Israeli soldiers daily. This is life for Palestinian children under Israeli apartheid. pic.twitter.com/f2XLMjmqKM

“Palestinian children deserve to play. They deserve to be free and safe. Instead, they are tormented, harassed and killed by Israeli soldiers on a daily basis,” the organization wrote.
“Really? child?”, reacted to the images Hanan Ashrawi, member of the Executive Committee of the Organization for the Liberation of Palestine (PLO).
Francesca Albanese, UN special rapporteur on the human rights situation in the occupied Palestinian territories, criticized in a recent report the “persecution” and “incessant attacks on the Palestinian people”. She also called for “once and for all the Israeli colonial occupation and its ‘apartheid’ practices to be dismantled”
