Congresswoman calls for investigating Israeli killing policy

US Congresswoman Betty McCollum denounced the killing of a Palestinian child who was at one of the weekly Friday demonstrations against Israeli policies in the West Bank, including land confiscation, checkpoints and enabling settlers' violence by Israeli forces as a "grotesque state-sponsored killing," calling on the incoming administration of President-elect Joe Biden to investigate the incident.

McCollum said "This senseless incident must be condemned as a direct result of Israel's permanent military occupation of Palestine.
