Horror and Hope in Beit Ummar

by Yoav Peck
Director of Community Relations
Parents Circle – Families Forum

One afternoon in late July, Mu’ayid al-Alaami drove his children to the grocery store in their town, Beit Ummar, near Hebron. The IDF was active that day, there were disturbances in the town, but the father and his children were not involved. As they headed back to their home with their groceries, a squad of soldiers opened fire on their vehicle, for no apparent reason. 14 bullets struck the car, and Mohammed, Mu’ayid’s 12 year old son was hit, falling mortally wounded into the arms of his little sister.
