Jamal bin Ismail had gone to her to help put out the fires there, and he was accused of being the one who started the fires and was killed and burned.
There are those who say that "Ben Ismail" volunteered to provide them with assistance, and they burned him only because he is an Arab who is not of their race!! We trust in the justice of the Algerian government and its leadership to protect rights, establish justice, and bring all criminals to justice as soon as possible to prevent sedition.
Tweeters launched a tag bearing the name Jamal bin Ismail to claim his right, and a video clip of the young man was circulated before his death documenting his talk about the fires and his pain from them and calling for support in extinguishing them.
Tweeters also circulated video clips documenting the moment of Jamal bin Ismail's murder in a way that ignited Algerian public opinion.
Tweeters demanded that those involved be held accountable, and they shared photos documenting the people who stormed the police car, pulled the young man out of it, and burned him.
Algerian media reported the statements of the father of Cheb Ben Ismail, who were considered by tweeters to be the testimony of a sane person who fights sedition in all its forms.
And his father said in his statements: “The tribes are our brothers, our lineages and our loved ones, and what happened to my son was done by an isolated group that does not represent the region, no to the strife between us as one people,” and demanded that the authorities hand over his son’s body.
Jamal Ben Ismail, also called "Jimmy", according to tweets and close to him, hails from the city of Miliana in Ain Defla. He is a musician and painter. He told his family before leaving that he was going to help in the state of Tizi Ouzou.
