A 23-year-old Palestinian succumbed to his wounds on Saturday, after being shot in the head by a rubber-coated metal bullet fired by Israeli occupation forces at Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem on April 22, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

Walid al-Sharif, a resident of the Beit Hanina neighborhood in occupied East Jerusalem, has died in the hospital after being in a coma since his injury, according to his brother Abdul Rahman.

Israeli forces arrested al-Sharif after shooting him, exacerbating his injury before he was taken to hospital.

Al-Sharif was injured on the third Friday of Ramadan when Israeli occupation forces attacked the Palestinian worshippers injuring 152 people and detaining more than 500 others.
