A Palestinian was killed on Sunday in occupied East Jerusalem, near the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, Anadolu Agency reported.
Israeli police claimed in a statement that four Israelis, including two settlers, were injured when a Palestinian opened fire near the Bab al-Silsila (Chain Gate), one of Al-Aqsa Mosque’s main gates, in occupied Jerusalem’s Old City.
Why a sanitised version @News24? Kay served in Israel's army yet no mention of it? Indeed the question u ought to probe is why do SA Jewish citizens flout our #FMMA as mercenaries in a foreign army? @MRN1SA @PSA_SouthAfrica @Africa4Pal @DIRCO_ZA https://t.co/Z7ema38Bqw

The settler, Eliyahu David Kay, was a South African national who migrated to Israel and joined the Israeli Army.
“Kay was born and raised in Johannesburg and moved to Israel on his own in 2017 to volunteer in the Israel Defense Forces, then made aliyah in 2019,” according to Haaretz.
Eliyahu David Kay, who was killed in occupied Jerusalem today, is a white South African who recently moved to the Zionist settler colony and joined its “army” to help murder Palestinians and steal their land. He was clearly addicted to apartheid and colonialism. https://t.co/wfFfGXKKWZ

“Eliyahu David Kay, who was killed in occupied Jerusalem today, is a white South African who recently moved to the Zionist settler colony and joined its ‘army’ to help murder Palestinians and steal their land,” Palestinian American journalist Ali Abunimah commented on Twitter. “He was clearly addicted to apartheid and colonialism,” he added.
There are over 600,000 illegal Jewish settlers living in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem. All Israeli settlements are deemed illegal under international law.
