Death of 16-Year-Old Palestinian You Won’t Hear About From MSM And Human Rights Groups (Updated)

Meet 16-year-old Hasan al-Sari.

He’s dead now.

Hasan was killed while digging a tunnel for Hamas. The photo on the left was apparently taken right before the work accident.

As the title of this post states, I very much doubt his death will be reported elsewhere. For the simple reason that Israel did not kill him.

But had Israel killed him, it would be all over the news. And he would be counted as a civilian, given his age, despite his belonging to Hamas and being engaged in terrorist activities.

Update: Commenter Bob found some more pics of young Hasan, including this:


So he wasn’t just a tunnel digger subcontractor.

Bob has also found this video of him taken moments before he died.

Update: Maan News reports the accident as if he was just a regular kid who fell in to a ditch (hat tip: PTWatch)

A teenager in Gaza died on Tuesday after falling into a ditch west of Gaza City, a ministry of health spokesman said.

Ashraf al-Qidra said Hassan al-Sirri, 16, was playing sports with friends in the area when he and another friend fell into a two-meter hole.

Civil defense crews arrived at the area and pulled out both teenagers, but al-Sirri was pronounced dead at hospital.
