Walid Al-Sharif had been fighting for his life for the past three weeks; he fell into a coma on April 24 and has been in critical condition ever since.

Al-Sharif’s head or neck was reportedly hit by an Israeli sponge-tipped bullet, according to his family and witnesses.



“A wounded man evacuated a few weeks ago from the Old City (…) with a head injury and in a very serious condition, died,” announced the Israeli hospital that received the patient.
Abdul Rahman al-Sharif said his brother, Walid, a resident of the northern neighborhood of Beit Hanina in Jerusalem

He died in hospital after being in a coma since his injury, which caused a laceration to his head and a severe brain hemorrhage, from which he never recovered.
Israeli forces first detained Walid al-Sharif, aggravating his wound before he was taken to hospital.

It was early morning on the third Friday of Ramadan when thousands of people attended prayers at the Al-Aqsa Mosque during the holy month of fasting Israeli occupation forces attacked Palestinian worshipers injuring 152 people, including Walid al-Sharif, and arresting more than 500.

Since mid-April, these clashes at these holy sites have left more than 300 injured, the vast majority of them Palestinians.
