1. Muhammad al Tamimi, nicknamed Hamudi by everyone, two and a half years old. Born in the village of Nabi Saleh. The youngest son of Marwa and Haitham Tamimi. The couple has another 7-year-old son.

Muhammad was shot on Friday evening by an Israeli sniper who was standing 50 meters away from their house. The couple and their son were about to leave for the mother's niece's birthday party in a nearby village. The father and his toddler son got into the car, and the mother returned to the house to collect something.

Immediately after starting the car, the sniper fired 5 bullets. One of them penetrated the toddler's brain stem. The father was shot in the shoulder. He continued to drive to the grandfather's house.

Muhammad was hospitalized in Sheba Hospital and died on Monday. The father was not allowed a visit to say goodbye to his son while he was alive, only after his death.

Initially the Army Spokesperson claimed that they shot at a source of fire aimed at Neve Tsuf, but later on they admitted to a "wrong identification" and "how sorry" the army was about the incident.

Apparently there was no shooting at Neve Tsuf, and Muhammad was shot by soldiers who lurked near their house (a regular place where they lurk).

2. Hatem As'ad Abu Najma, from Beit Safafa. He was shot and killed on April 24, after carrying out a stampede attack, in which six were injured. Since then his body has been held by Israel. The family was notified of the return of the body, and the severe restrictions on the burial process. Later on the IOF attacked the funeral procession.
