Investigators: None of the cameras taped shooting of special ed. victim
On May 30, Hallak, a 32-year-old special-needs student from east Jerusalem, was shot by Border Police in the Old City on his way to Jerusalem’s Elwyn Al-Quds Employment Training Center.
Both Floyd and Hallak were from communities that often complain of police brutality and racism.
Iyad al-Hallak, a young autistic man, was shot by Police in late May. The case is under investigation.
The protest comes in the wake of the killing of unarmed African-American George Floyd by police officers, as well as the killing of Iyad al-Hallak in Jerusalem by Border Police.
SADLY, LOVE, peace and communication are far from the minds of the looters who have been destroying storefronts and stealing anything they can lay their hands on.
Glick was severely beaten on Thursday when he visited the bereaved family of Iyad al-Halak, a Palestinian man who was shot by Border Police last Friday.
On Saturday, a protest titled "Murder in the Streets: Justice for Iyad al-Hallak" is scheduled to start in Jerusalem at 8:30 p.m., while another is scheduled to start in Jaffa at 7:30 p.m.
Following the incident, the gates to the Old City were closed by Jerusalem police, in fear of protests. The Temple Mount is scheduled to reopen Sunday.
