A Palestinian child has died after falling from a high position while running away from Israeli soldiers who were chasing him in the village of Toqou, near Bethlehem, the official Palestinian agency WAFA reported.

Medical sources confirmed that 7-year-old Rayan Yaser Suliman was moved to the Beit Jala hospital after falling. However, efforts to revive him have failed.

According to the hospital, Suleiman fell from a high position while he was running away from Israeli soldiers, who were chasing him and other schoolmates.

Rayan’s father, Yaser, said that he tried to rush to the hospital but Israeli soldiers stopped the car and only let them go when they realized that his son was dead.
