Three-year-old Mohammad Haytham Tamimi, who was shot by the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) Friday, died as a result of his wounds Monday.

According to his family, Tamimi was shot in the head in the Nabi Saleh village in Ramallah and then transported to a nearby hospital to receive the necessary treatment. 

He remained on life support until he was pronounced dead Monday, while his father was taken to a hospital in Ramallah.

The child was with his father and mother in their car when a bullet fired by IOF soldiers hit the boy’s head before injuring his father in the shoulder as well.

The boy's body will be transported to Ramallah for burial tomorrow.
