Child, Paramedic Wounded By Army Fire During Nabi Saleh Weekly Protest
As dozens of residents and international peace activists held their nonviolent weekly protest against the Annexation Wall in Nabi Saleh village, near the West Bank city of Bethlehem, Israeli soldiers violently attacked them and fired rubber-coated metal bullets and gas bombs leading to several injuries.
Eyewitnesses reported that soldiers fired dozens of gas bombs at the protesters, and that one child, identified as Islam Al Tamimi, was hit by a gas bomb in his foot, while a paramedic identified as Nariman Al Tamimi, was hit by a gas bomb in her shoulder.
