A 60-year-old Palestinian man from occupied East Jerusalem succumbed to wounds he sustained when he was beaten by Israeli forces two weeks ago, according to local sources.

RNA - Mousa Abu Mayala, from Shufat refugee camp, was attacked by undercover Israeli soldiers and beaten in the chest in front of his house in the camp, WAFA reported.

He was taken to hospital where he remained until he was pronounced dead this morning.

Israel occupied the West Bank and East Jerusalem al-Quds during the Six Day War in 1967. It later annexed East Jerusalem al-Quds in a move not recognized by the international community.

Tensions have been running high in the Israeli-occupied territories and the besieged Gaza Strip since December 2017, when President Donald Trump decided to recognize Jerusalem al-Quds as Israel’s “capital” and moved the US embassy from Tel Aviv to the occupied Palestinian city.

The decision has emboldened the Israeli regime which regularly opens fire on Palestinians.

Human rights groups have repeatedly slammed Tel Aviv for its shoot-to-kill policy, saying many of the Palestinians killed in such attacks did not pose any serious threat to Israelis.
