Israeli soldiers attacked, Friday, many Palestinian protesters in Nabi Saleh village, northwest of the central West Bank city of Ramallah, and shot a young man with an expanding bullet, in addition to causing several others to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.
Bilal Tamimi, a local nonviolent activist against the illegal Israeli Annexation Wall and colonies, said the soldiers attacked the nonviolent protesters in the al-Jabal area in the village, and fired the illegal expanding rounds, in addition to gas bombs and rubber-coated steel bullets.
Tamimi added that the soldiers shot a young man with the “Toto” expanding bullet in the thigh, causing a moderate wound before he was rushed to a hospital in Ramallah.
Many Palestinians suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation, and others sustained cuts and bruises, before receiving the needed treatment by local medics.
