Villagers and solidarity activists marched against the occupation in Nabi Saleh, heading for the hilly edge of the village overlooking the settlement of Halamish. The IDF, however, was already waiting for demonstrators with at least two snipers who immediately fired live ammunition. Without using any other crowd control measures, such as stun grenades, the snipers fired tutu (0.22mm) bullets at the demonstrators, injuring two, a man in his 20s, and a 17 year old boy. Both were taken to the hospital for treatment. This comes at the heels of several fatal shootings: a high ranking officer, commander of the area's forces, executed a boy for stone throwing at his car, only to be given the full protection and support from the army; earlier this week, a teen was shot dead by the army in the Jenin area, and a man of 52 was shot and killed by soldiers in his own home near Hebron; a few hours later, two brothers were shot and severely injured during a military raid in their Nablus home. This escalation also proves that the military and legal apparatus provide soldiers with protection thus lending legitimacy after the fact to shooting civilians without accountability.
