Ahmed was killed by Israeli forces at the age of 11. He was a calm and happy child. He lived in the overcrowded Al-Shati’ refugee camp and would often go out in the street to play with his friends.

On 28 July 2014, the first day of Eid, Ahmed and his friends were playing in the street when they were attacked by an Israeli warplane. 10 children including Ahmed were killed in the attack.

His mother said, “He was not very good at school so this is why he wanted to get a job. His friends had many nicknames for him.”
