El Wataniya Video: Algerian football striker Baghdad Bounedjah showed solidarity with murdered Palestinian toddler by revealing a photo of him on his undershirt to celebrate scoring his team's winning goal.

Algerian football striker Baghdad Bounedjah showed solidarity with Palestinian toddler, Ali Dawabsheh, who was murdered by Israeli settlers, by lifting his shirt to reveal a photo of Dawabsheh, after scoring his team's winning goal during a Tunisia Cup match on Tuesday.

His team, Etoile Sportive du Sahel won by a single goal to nil against Club Africain.

The video broadcast by Tunisian television station El Wataniya shows Bounedjah celebrating his goal with his friends by revealing an undershirt, which showed a photo of the toddler next to a Palestinian flag. He then kissed the photo before running towards the crowd.

Dawabsheh was burnt alive in an arson attack by Israeli settlers on 31 July when he was sleeping at his home in the West Bank. His brother and parents were critically wounded in the attack and are still fighting for their lives in hospital.
