Palestinian artist Taqi Spateen shared an artwork he made recently on the Apartheid Wall in Bethlehem to pay tribute to the 7-year-old Palestinian kid who instantly died while being chased by Israeli soldiers.

Rayyan Yaser Suleiman was heading from school to his house before collapsing and passing away from a heart attack while running away from Israeli forces in the village of Tuqu in the occupied West Bank.

With the title "Halloween", the Palestinian artist drew an Israeli soldier with his head replaced by a pumpkin and on the right side Spateen painted a school bag floting in the air with an angel sign above it.

According to the artist, Taqi explained that he wanted to deliver a message to the world through his latest artwork that while the world is joyfully celebrating Halloween, people in Palestine are living in horror every day under the occupation.

If you are looking for a scary costume, we have a kid whose heart stopped and he died just seeing this costume (IOF)."
