AMMAN — Alaa Eddine Zuaiter, the son of Judge Raed Zuaiter who was killed by Israeli soldiers earlier this month, died on Saturday, local news websites reported.

The five-year-old, who was suffering from a terminal illness, was hospitalised at Istiqlal Hospital’s intensive care unit.

His father was shot dead by Israeli soldiers on the King Hussein Bridge on March 10.

Zuaiter, an Amman Court of First Instance judge, was going to visit relatives in Nablus to reportedly ask for funds to treat his son abroad.
