They shoot whatever they can. They hit
Israeli occupation army shot three young men with live ammunition today near Ofer, Israeli military compound and prison in which hundreds of Palestinians are being incarcerated. Two of the youth sustained injuries in the leg, while the third in the arm. They were treated in the field by a volunteer medic and then rushed off to Ramallah hospital.
Numerous tear gas canisters were also shot at the 50+ youth who had gathered, as they do every Friday and some other days, to confront the Israeli occupation that has established one of its military compounds right next to Palestinian family homes. Israel’s Apartheid Wall separates occupied Jerusalem from Ramallah in this area, cutting off Palestinians from their lands.
Dozens of Israeli soldiers, border police, and special units used live ammunition, tear gas, and sound bombs; some had green lazers that pointed at people’s heads and house windows.
The confrontation lasted for about 5 hours, until dark.
Meanwhile in Bil’in, which this month is celebrating its 10th year of popular resistance against the Israeli occupation, six people were reported injured, including a journalist, and four arrested during a protest march that carried some 700 Palestinian flags.
