Ahmed Manasra alive, ‘improving,’ video shows

The Government Press Office releases a video showing 13-year-old Ahmed Manasra in Hadassah Hospital at Ein Kerem, who stabbed two Israelis in Pisgat Zeev on Monday.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas charged in a speech Wednesday that Ahmed was killed “in cold blood” by Israeli troops. The GPO said the clip was “disputing Palestinian Abbas [sic] claim that he was executed.”

Manasra is seen being fed in the clip by a man with a black tie. There’s no audio to the film, but Manasra can be seen asking the person holding camera “What?” in Arabic.

“Hadassah Ein Karem hospital updated that his condition is improving and he will be released from the hospital in the next few days,” the GPO said.

Manasra was reportedly struck by a car while fleeing the scene of the stabbing; his cousin Hassan Manasra was shot dead by Israeli security officers while charging them with a knife.
