The village of Nabi Sales commemorated Rushdi Tamimi who was shot and killed by the Israeli army three years ago, during a demonstration against the war on Gaza, operation pillar of defence. Villagers and solidarity activists marched on the main road, when the IDF fired barrage of tear gas and rubber coated steel bullets. A tear gas canister was fired in my direction, causing my eyes an acute burning sensation. Even when I crouched toward the ground, soldiers continued to fire in my direction. The effects of the tear gas then lingered for many hours after the demonstration concluded.
