The body was taken to his town where he was laid to rest at the local cemetery.

Following his critical injury today, the child was rushed to Palestine Medical Complex in Ramallah, in the center of the occupied West Bank, and was immediately placed for surgery. However, attempts at resuscitation all failed and the child was pronounced dead.
Palestinian and international officials have strongly condemned the army killing of Abu Alayya.
