That the Parliament condemns the murder of 15-year-old Ali Ayman Saleh Abu Alia, a Palestinian child reportedly shot by the Israeli Defence Force (IDF) while attending protests as an observer in his village, Al-Mughayyir, in December 2020; understands that he was the fifth Palestinian child killed by the IDF using live ammunition in the West Bank last year; condemns the use of live ammunition against protestors, and agrees with Defence for Children International’s reported assessment that the lack of accountability from Israeli forces in these cases of violence against children, who in areas of armed conflict are afforded additional protections in international law, represents a major violation of their human rights.
