Jamal Manasra is seeking justice for his son Ahmad, who was killed by an Israeli soldier in 2019 while helping the victims of a car accident. “We knew from the very beginning that as Palestinians, it wouldn’t be easy for us to get justice for our son, even if he was innocent, that’s not how things work with the Israeli occupation,” Manasra tells Mondoweiss. “But even with low expectations, we were devastated when we were informed of the plea deal. How could they have such disregard for Ahmad’s life?”
