Ali al-Ashqar had just thrown one stone when he was shot. The 17-year-old immediately fell to the ground.
Nabil Masoud had been standing nearby. Along with two medics, he rushed to try and help Ali.
“But the Israeli sniper started shooting toward anyone who got close to the child,” said Masoud. “For around 17 minutes, no one was able to reach Ali. It was clear that the Israeli soldier wanted the child to bleed until he died. And that is what actually happened.”

Ali was killed during the Great March of Return on 6 September. He was approximately 80 meters from the fence separating Gaza and Israel.
