The toll of the clashes between Israeli and Palestinian police officers that have occurred on the esplanade of the Mosques since mid-April is now one dead and nearly 300 injured, the vast majority of them Palestinians. Indeed, “an injured person evacuated a few weeks ago from the Old City district to Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital, with a head injury and in very serious condition died”, we learned from the Israeli hospital and his family on Saturday.

According to the Palestinian news agency Wafa, it is Walid Al-Sharif, 23, from the Beit Hanina neighborhood in East Jerusalem, a Palestinian sector of the city occupied and annexed by Israel. He was injured on April 22 during clashes between Israeli forces and young Palestinians on the esplanade of the Mosques. A spokeswoman for Hadassah Hospital said his injuries were not the result of live ammunition.

On April 22, Israeli police entered the plaza and used “means of dispersal” after Palestinians threw stones at the Western Wall, Judaism’s holiest prayer site below the esplanade of the Mosques, according to the police.
