As today’s weekly demonstration was about the end and the youth were about to disperse, an IDF officer and a sniper started walking towards them. This ignited some stone throwing and one of the boys was shot with live ammunition (“tutu”) in his leg. Only then IDF forces left the scene. The office and sniper were carrying only stun grenades and live weapons with them. Other than the clear attempt to provoke the demonstrators, this is another example of how IDF soldiers’ are increasingly using live ammunition to disperse demonstrations in Nabi Saleh and other villages.
